Two-time All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera Antworten

ARLINGTON , Texas (AP) — will get a chance to replace a likely Hall of Fame player in Texas by shifting to the corner on the left side of the infield.Cabrera finalized a $3.5 million, one-year contract with the Rangers on Thursday to take over at third base for Adrian Beltre, who announced his retirement in November after 3,166 hits in 21 big league seasons, the last eight in Texas.“Less time there than up the middle, but has obviously a lot of experience on the left side of the infield as far as seeing the ball, the angle,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said. “Has really good hands, really strong arm … plenty strong enough arm to play there.”The deal became official after the 33-year-old switch-hitting free agent successfully completed a physical. He can earn $100,000 in performance bonuses for plate appearances: $50,000 each for 500 and 550.Cabrera played 90 games at second base for the New York Mets last season before he was traded to Philadelphia, where he played shortstop and third base.In his 12 big league seasons, Cabrera has started 1,426 games. Only 52 of those have been at third base Bryce Harper Jersey , 12 for the Phillies last season after 40 in New York in 2017. He has started 1,054 games as a shortstop, 320 at second base and another 21 as a designated hitter.“We’re thinking he’ll be a solid third baseman and give us some flexibility to either spell guys at other spots, or at least give (new manager Chris Woodward) some versatility,” Daniels said.Cabrera is a .269 career hitter with Cleveland, Washington, Tampa Bay, the Mets and Phillies. In 147 games overall last season, he hit .262 with 23 homers and 75 RBIs. The only time he had more was 2011, his first All-Star season with the Indians, when he had career highs of 25 homers and 92 RBIs.“Especially offensively, hasn’t lost anything,” Daniels said. “He’s got power on both sides, got a good eye.”Being a switch-hitter also fit the Rangers offensively after they traded Jurickson Profar Stephen Strasburg Jersey , their switch-hitter who had been the leading candidate to replace Beltre before getting dealt to Oakland last month.Third baseman Patrick Wisdom, who made his major league debut with 32 games for St. Louis Cardinals last season, was acquired in a trade during the winter meetings. Daniels said Wisdom still has an opportunity to make the club in spring training with his ability to play third base, first base and potentially other spots.Infielder Jack Reinheimer was designated for assignment to make room for Cabrera on the Rangers roster. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Aaron Judge and Brett Gardner think the Yankees can break the major league season record of 267 home runs that New York set last season“Get this whole team healthy, we’re going to crush the record that we set last year,” Judge said.New York broke the previous mark of 264 by the 1997 Seattle Mariners despite injuries that limited Judge to 112 games, Gary Sanchez to 89 and Greg Bird to 82.“I just think that we’re capable of doing better than we were last year overall as an offense,” Gardner said.Judge, slowed by a right wrist injury last season, and Gardner each hit two homers in Sunday’s 7-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.Judge came to camp after a normal offseason. He was slowed slightly at the start of spring training last year following left shoulder surgery.“Just working on my swing. Last year I didn’t get a chance to do that at all,” Judge said. “I’m just trying to have a healthy season. Then we’ll see where the numbers are at.”Judge hit 27 homers last season and Giancarlo Stanton led the Yankees with 38 in the first season after he was acquired Miami. Stanton led the major leagues with 59 homers in 2017, when Judge topped the AL with 52.However, Didi Gregorius is expected to be sidelined until summer following Tommy John surgery last October. He hit a career-high 27 home runs last year; his replacement , Troy Tulowitzki, hasn’t played since 2017.Bird is completing to regain his first-base job from Luke Voit, who hit 14 homers in 39 games after he was obtained from St. Louis.“I think we have a nice balance both offensively and defensively,” general manager Brian Cashman said. “But got a long way to go. It’s too early to get excited about anything, obviously, other than the fact that we feel like the collection of talent we have, you can see that talent on display.”New York bypassed free agents Manny Machado and Bryce Harper, instead adding Tulowitzki, left-hander James Paxton, reliever Adam Ottavino and infielder DJ LeMahieu while re-signing pitchers CC Sabathia, J.A. Happ and Zack Britton along with Gardner.“I’m closing the chapter on these questions about high-end free agents from the winter time,” Cashman said. “I’d rather focus on the here and now, and the real rather than unreal.”
