Asdrubal Cabrera has no doubt been one of the most consistent in the 2018 season. However, the aging infielder is not a long term fix or solution for the Mets going forward.
Cabrera has had a solid season manning down the infield for the Metropolitan’s. But that doesn’t seem to be working in his favor, especially if he hopes to remain a New York Met.
In 299 at-bats, Cabrera has 13 dingers while driving in 44 R.B.I.’s with his 85 hits producing a .284/.327/.482/.809 slash line.
While most of us fans see him as one of the few bright spots of the club, & it’s true, he is. He’s become more valuable to a playoff contender as opposed to a team struggling to win games against the bottom of the barrel.
So if Cabrera is more valuable to a playoff contender, due to desperation, that team is more likely to part ways with a prospect or two they normally wouldn’t consider letting go.
It may be time to pull the trigger on Asdrubal Cabrera. What’s your thoughts on Cab’s & potential trades?
