Cabrera had a breakout season offensively in 2013 despite being suspended for the final 50 games of the regular season after being linked to Biogenesis. He hit .283, with a career-high 108 hits and 37 steals.
Kennedy went 4-2 with a 4.24 ERA in 10 starts for the Padres after he was acquired in exchange for pitchers Joe Thatcher and Matt Stites.
Ross went 3-8 but had a 3.17 ERA in 35 games, including 16 starts. He and Kennedy will again be a part of the rotation; other candidates include free-agent signee Josh Johnson, Stults, Cashner and a handful of other rotation hopefuls.
