Fantasy Impact: Although it is unlikely for Cabrera to take over a starting position, look to him to be a solid utility player along with Ryan Flaherty and pinch runner for the Orioles.

 

According to Eduardo A. Encina, the Orioles are close to a one-year deal with IF Everth Cabrera worth about $2.4 million. (Source: Eduardo A. Encina on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cabrera will compete with Jonathan Schoop and Ryan Flaherty for the 2B and backup infielder jobs. Cabrera, an All-Star in 2013, provides solid value on the base paths, amassing 99 SB over the past three seasons and could be a nice sleeper candidate if he wins a starting spot in Spring Training.
