Tampa Bay Rays - 24% owned

Bats: B, Throws: R

Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera collected his 1000th career hit with his double against the Yankees Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Cabrera has been struggling offensively, currently batting .214 on the season and has yet to steal a base. Even if he improves to his career average of .266, there is little value for fantasy leagues.


Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a double in a losing effort against the Yankees on Monday night in Tropicana Field.

Fantasy Impact: Cabrera has really struggled this season for the Rays since being signed over the offseason from the Nationals. He does have four extra base hits over his last four games including one home run, so maybe better times are ahead for the 29 year old shortstop.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-4 in Saturday's win against the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Cabrera has been batting below .200 for some time. With his three hits, his average is now at .211. Cabrera is still not a viable fantasy option until he starts to hit consistently.

After going 0-for-5 Wednesday night, Asdrubal Cabrera is now batting .189 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: There are better SS options out there such as Brandon Crawford, if he is still available in your league. If you are in a mixed league, he is not worth a roster spot right now.

Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera went 1 fo 2 and drove in a run on Thursday. His spring average is at .176

Fantasy Impact: Cabrera was recently named the Rays starting SS after ending the last season at 2B with the Nationals. His eligibility at both positions increases his fantasy value.

Rays manager Kevin Cash named Cabrera the opening day shortstop on Monday. "I don't think you're going to find a more sure-handed shortstop than Cabby," Cash said. Cabrera beat out Nick Franklin and Tim Beckham for the starting job. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Even though Cabrera has won the starting shortstop job, he still is considered a late round backup in mixed leagues. In 10 spring training games he has a .192 AVG with 1 RBI.

It has yet to be determined which position IF Asdrubal Cabrera will settle in at for the upcoming season. He will play at both 2B and SS in spring training, but prefers to play one position once the season starts. (Source: Roger Mooney, Tampa Tribune)

Fantasy Impact: He qualifies for both positions, having split his time at each last season. Given the increased depth at 2B, he would be a higher round selection at SS in most fantasy league formats.

Fantasy Impact: With this signing, it is expected that Zobrist or Yunel Escobar will be dealt to make room at 2B or SS. He will be counted on to provide needed pop to their lineup and could deliver .250-.260, 15 HR, and 15-20 SB this season.

Fantasy Impact: Capable of playing three different positions, Cabrera would likely fill the void left by Daniel Descalso as a utility bench player for the Cardinals. It should be noted that after averaging a .278 batting average for his first six years as a pro, Cabrera topped out at a paltry .242 the past two seasons, including a disastrous stint with the Nationals. The 29-year-old veteran would be valuable for fantasy purposes in the event of an injury to Jhonny Peralta or Kolten Wong.
