"There is some pressure there hitting in the three-spot. We’re all confident Cabby is going to help us out a lot this year. We just need to buy a little time with it now."

Cabrera was hitless in his previous 14 at-bats heading into Monday's game. He's hit .206/.260/.278 with eight RBI in 97 at-bats.

Rays' Cash tabs Asdrubal Cabrera as starting shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash made it official Monday, naming Asdrubal Cabrera the team's starting shortstop. He beat out Nick Franklin and Tim Beckham, who were also competing for the starting job this spring.

"I don't think you're going to find a more sure-handed shortstop than Cabby," Cash said.

Cabrera is a two-time All-Star while playing at shortstop. He has spent most of his MLB career at shortstop (731 games). Although, the Rays were considering using him at both shortstop and second base this season before Cash made his announcement Monday.


Report: Rays to name Asdrubal Cabrera starting shortstop


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) The Rays have reportedly decided on a starting shortstop. Asdrubal Cabrera will be tabbed the starter after speculation of him playing second base or splitting time between the two, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Cabrera, who hit .241 with 14 home runs in 2014, has played primarily at shortstop for his entire career. Last season, however, Cabrera split time between shortstop (93 games) and second base (48 games).

The official announcement is expected soon.

"He has not done anything this spring to look like he's lost range," general manager Kevin Cash said last week. "If I had to say, from spring training, this spring, I've had the benefit of seeing him his last two years in Cleveland, he looks better. … His body looks better. He's moving really well.

Rays manager Kevin Cash getting closer to naming starting shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash doesn't appear ready to name a starting shortstop, as he said Tuesday he likes "all the guys we have" competing for the job. However, it appears Asdrubal Cabrera and Nick Franklin are the favorites over Tim Beckham, per MLB.com.

"[The candidates are] still kind of bouncing back and forth," Cash said. "But we want the guy who is going to make the routine play. And not to say that anybody's not doing that, [it] seems like they're all doing that. Cabby just has the experience factor with making that play."

Cash said a decision on who will be the starting shortstop could be made next week.


Rays might use Asdrubal Cabrera at shortstop and second base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Although Rays infielder Asdrubal Cabrera has primarily played shortstop in his career, manager Kevin Cash is open to the idea of having Cabrera play at both shortstop and second base in 2015, per MLB.com.

"I think coming in right now, we're going to be versatile," Cash said. "And he's going to be versatile going back and forth, getting his work in at both spots. I know that we would like to have the [decision made]. [The] earlier the better. Because it gives the guys a better sense going into the season. That doesn't always play out that way. But Cabby, his conversations in the offseason with everybody, he's been very open minded. We're ecstatic to have him in there every day."

Cabrera, who fielded grounders at second and short Monday, said he would prefer to play one position instead of constantly bouncing back and forth.

"Yeah, I would like to stay at one position," Cabrera said. "I think it's hard for anyone to play short then come back at second. It's not the same."

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.

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.
