Mets officially pick up Asdrubal Cabrera's 2018 option

04 Novembre 2017

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, the Mets are picking up their $8.5 million team option on Cabrera. Cabrera has batted.280/.343/.455 with 37 home runs over the last two seasons in NY and started over 30 games at shortstop, second and third base in 2017.

The Mets also have until Monday to pick up Jerry Blevins' $7 million option.

Cabrera, 31, hit.280 with 14 home runs and 59 RBIs this past season. "The season didn't end the way we wanted but that didn't stop him from playing hard right to the very last out of the season". Injuries and the emergence of rookie shortstop Amed Rosario forced the Mets to move Cabrera from shortstop to second base and finally over to third base.

According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, the National Basketball Association is planning to review Oubre's decision to wear the coat. McGregor wore a similar suit jacket earlier this summer leading up to his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Cabrera had asked for a trade in June, when the Mets refused to meet his request to pick up his team option in exchange for his moving from shortstop to second base.

The club still has quite a few questions to resolve as they head into the offseason - namely, what to do with David Wright and where to stash Cabrera on a long-term basis. He would receive a $1 million buyout if the Mets let him go. He appeared in 135 games.
