Report: Phillies could join Asdrubal Cabrera market


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) The Phillies could become involved in the market for free-agent infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, ESPN.com reports.

The Phillies traded their longtime starter at shortstop to the Dodgers this offseason and will be looking to fill that hole in the infield. However, the team will have to shed some additional payroll in order to make a run at the infielder, according to the report. Cabrera hit .241/.307/.387 with 14 home runs, 61 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 553 at-bats between Cleveland and Washington in 2014.


Report: Nationals have checked in on Asdrubal Cabrera


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) The Nationals are one of several teams to have checked in on second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera, according to The Washington Post

Cabrera spent the second half of 2014 in Washington, and has expressed a desire to remain with the club. The Nationals are said to be in pursuit of a middle infielder. Shortstop Ian Desmond is in the final year of his contract, and it's unclear if the team wants to go with Danny Espinosa at second. The 29-year-old Cabrera hit .241/.307/.387 over 553 at-bats last year.


A's interested in free agents shortstops Cabrera, Drew


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) The Athletics are among teams interested in free agent shortstops Asdrubal Cabrera and Stephen Drew, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Nationals 2B Asdrubal Cabrera: I want to stay in Washington


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Nationals second baseman and soon-to-be free agent Asdrubal Cabrera is hoping to stick around in the nation's capital.

"I really enjoy it to play with this team," he told the Washington Post. "Great guys. Good front office. I was really happy to be here and in this moment with the team."

Cabrera was traded from Cleveland to Washington with just two months remaining on his contract and was moved from shortstop to second. He could receive strong consideration in a thin free agent class for shortstops headlined by Hanley Ramirez and Jed Lowrie. He also proved steady at second base, though he has little range at either middle infield position. And the Yankees will be seeking a new shortstop to replace retired Derek Jeter.

The presence of Ian Desmond would prevent Cabrera from moving back to short if he remains with the Nationals.


Nationals' Matt Williams, Asdrubal Cabrera get tossed in Game 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2014) Nationals manager Matt Williams and infielder Asdrubal Cabrera were both ejected in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Giants.

Cabrera doubled in the third inning and scored the only run of the night for the Nationals thus far. He has two hits in his first eight postseason at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Asdrubal Cabrera smacks 10th home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Nationals second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-2 victory over the Mets.

Cabrera's eighth-inning shot gave the Nationals an insurance run they would end up needing after the Mets plated one runner in the bottom of the ninth. The homer was the 10th of the season for Cabrera but his first since joining the Nationals. He has hit .249/.309/.393 with 44 RBI and seven stolen bases in 417 at-bats.


Asdrubal Cabrera activated and in lineup Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Nationals officially added newly acquired infielder Asdrubal Cabrera to the active roster Friday, the day after he was acquired via trade from the Indians.

Cabrera has struggled to a .246/.305/.386 line this season, but should be a regular starter in the middle infield for the Nationals down the stretch. He is, in fact, in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies, batting seventh and playing second base. 


Asdrubal Cabrera not destined to help Nationals appreciably


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The two years that have passed since Asdrubal Cabrera was a premier offensive force as a middle infielder and the five years that have gone by since he played second base all but precludes him from making a major positive impact with the Nationals.

Cabrera slipped into mediocrity at the plate after earning his second All-Star Game appearance in 2012 and has stayed there. His plate discipline disappeared in a spate of overaggressiveness, causing his strikeouts to rise to alarming levels. He frustrated the Indians in recent years with his inability to hit in the clutch - he's batting .188 with runners in scoring position and is hitless in 13 at-bats with a runner on third and two outs this season.

More disturbing has been his defensive collapse. Cabrera wowed the Indians early in his career with acrobatic, dependable work at shortstop that overshadowed mediocre range. He is now among the worst middle infielders in the sport with 14 errors that was until recently the most at his position in the American League and arguably the worst range in the league. That problem will not be any less pronounced with a move to second base, where he is expected to spend most of his time in Washington.

Cabrera will be seeking to maximize his value in free agency in the offseason. He will command $10 million a year or more if he somehow reverts to the form that made him an all-star. Too much time has passed for that to be a realistic possibility.


Nationals acquire Asdrubal Cabrera from Indians


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Mariners in the mix for Asdrubal Cabrera?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Blue Jays targeting Asdrubal Cabrera


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Indians veteran shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is on the radar of the Blue Jays as the trading deadline approaches, per Fox Sports. He would play second base, a spot with which he became familiar early in his career, as Jose Reyes is locked in at shortstop.

Cleveland has shown no inclination to sign Cabrera with prized prospect Francisco Lindor on the way. Lindor has been raking at Triple-A Columbus after his recent promotion. Cabrera has raised his trade value by hitting well lately, but he is tied for the American League lead in errors with 14 and has limited range.
