Downside To Each Team’s Biggest Free Agent Signing: American League

Tampa Bay Rays: Asdrubal Cabrera
There is so much to like about this signing.  Cabrera was one of the best shortstops on the market this winter and assuming Hanley Rameriez does move to left field, he might have been the best shortstop on the market.  The Rays snagged him with a one-year deal making this a very low risk move them.  There isn’t too much that can really go wrong with this move.  Cabrera had played over seven seasons in Cleveland before getting traded to Washington at the deadline last season and he did struggle after the move in his new home.  If being away from Cleveland is a problem for him then Tampa Bay will go through the season with a whole at shortstop.  Because it was just a one-year deal though, they’ll be able to move on quickly.
