Latest Update Asdrubal Cabrera on the Nationals: ‘I would love to stay’ Fri Oct, 10, 10:38 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.
It seems to be a nice fit and he's obviously willing to stay at second base. The only scenario that could complicate things is if the Nationals keep Adam LaRoche and want Ryan Zimmerman to return to third base. Anthony Rendon would get the nod at second before Cabrera would. Analyst: Howard Bender
Cabrera is hitting .250 this postseason and he notched his 2nd RBI of the postseason in today's contest. Cabrera hit .241 in the regular season and the Nationals are hoping that the hits keep coming in the postseason. Cabrera and the Nationals play again tomorrow in a decisive game four match up.Analyst: Colby Conway
Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a run scored and two strikeouts before letting his temper get the better of him in the bottom of the 11th inning. He's been a solid asset for the Nationals here in the playoffs, going 2-for-8 with a home run, one RBI and a pair of runs scored while playing solid defense at second. He was replaced in the field by Danny Espinosa.Analyst: Howard Bender
While Cabrera isn't known for his power, he hit a nice solo shot on Friday. He's a career .200 hitter in the postseason (12 games), but hopefully he can buck that trend this postseason. Analyst: Ben Diamond
