Asdrubal Cabrera to Mets: Trade me

Asdrubal Cabrera, unhappy with the Mets’ decision to move him to second base on short notice, said Friday he wants to be traded.

The veteran infielder, who was activated from the disabled list, was in the lineup at second base against the Giants at AT&T Park and vowed to give “100 percent,” but he made it clear he is unhappy with his situation.

“If they don’t have a plan for me, I think it’s time to make a move,” Cabrera said, noting he has told his agent to facilitate a trade. “What I saw the last couple of weeks, I don’t think they have any plan for me.”

Mets tease Jose Reyes return to shortstop, but there’s a big hitch | New York Post

This sounds like a precursor to Amed Rosario coming up later in the year.

The Mets have discussed a face-lift to the left side of their infield, but at this point a plan that would entail Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera switching positions has gained little traction, multiple sources told The Post on Thursday.

Cabrera, who is battling knee soreness that has limited his range, is against the idea of moving from shortstop to third base and club officials are hesitant to force the issue on a veteran player.

Cabrera, Gregorius seemed solid — but these metrics say otherwise - NY Daily News

Although I’m sure the missing plays in Statcast will need to be address, I’m looking forward to seeing better data for infielders.
