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.

St. Louis is among several teams expressing interest in free agent Asdrubal Cabrera, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

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.
