Latest Update Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a double, three RBI and a walk in the Nationals win on Tuesday. Tue Aug, 19, 10:48 PM
Has developed an excellent power bat (especially from the left side) and shows the ability to be a regular RBI producer. He's also speedy enough to be a decent stolen-base threat on the basepaths.
Flaws: : Strikes out a bit too much, especially vis-a-vis his walks total. Makes his share of errors from shortstop. Was somewhat injury-prone in his earlier days, but he seems to have gotten healthier with time.
Cabrera is now slashing .248/.310/.387 with one home run and eight RBI since joining the Nationals, but has now hit safely in nine of his last 10 games as he tries to make up for a slow start. Despite gaining second base eligibility, Cabrera remains a fringe fantasy option outside of deep mixed leauges as he continues to be inconsistent in fantasy production since moving to the Nation's Capital.

Nice way to make me look like a prognostication idiot. Yet, there is the possibility that the protocols will come into play. Wait and see.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Sounds as if he will need to go through concussion protocols before he can return to action. We can expect Danny Espinosa to take over at second while he is out.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
The Nationals seem content to let their new second baseman sit against left handed pitching, such as Jeff Locke who is facing them tonight for the Pirates. Danny Espinosa will fill in for Cabrera.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
