Asdrubal Cabrera Drawing Trade Interest From Brewers, D’Backs

Friday night, Mets closer Jeurys Familia was the center of serious trade conversations, with a deal possibly on the verge of being consummated.

However, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, Familia isn’t the only one drawing trade interest.

Infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, who is also a free agent at the end of the season, has reportedly drawn interest from the Milwaukee Brewers and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Cabrera, 32, has been good for 1.0 bWAR this season, while hitting to a .281/.334/.490 clip with 17 homers and 52 RBI.

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as Cabrera’s name has been long speculated as a trade chip for the Mets.

Despite the infamous trade falling through with Milwaukee in 2015, the Mets have history with the team, as they do with the Diamondbacks who they acquired Addison Reed from in 2015.
