The Orix Buffaloes decided to remove Alex Cabrera name from their list of Holdover players (次年度契約保留選手名簿).  That means Cabrera will essentially become a free agent as of 12/2.  According to GM Yoshio Murayama, there's a clause in Cabrera's contract that states the team must leave him off the Holdover list if a deal isn't struck before the end of November.

The Buffaloes will likely keep negotiations with Cabrera open through to the end of the year, but he is expected to leave the club.
