Reports: Nationals to sign veteran INF Cabrera

The Washington Nationals will sign veteran infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, according to multiple reports.

Cabrera, 33, recently was designated for assignment and released by the Texas Rangers. He hit .235 with 12 homers and 51 RBIs in 93 games with Texas this season.

This will mark the second stint with the Nationals for Cabrera, who played 49 games with the club in 2014. He is a .267 lifetime hitter with 174 homers and 756 RBIs during parts of 13 seasons with the Cleveland Indians, Nationals, Tampa Bay Rays, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies and Rangers.

The two-time All-Star has played second base, third base and shortstop during his career. He started 90 games at third base for the Rangers this season but spent time at all three positions in 2018.

The Nationals could look to Cabrera to provide veteran depth as they make a playoff push. The team is in the thick of the National League wild-card race.
