Mets Season in Review: Asdrubal Cabrera
Areas for improvement
So, where can Cabrera improve?
Everybody goes through slumps so it would be rough to nitpick the summer dry spell. It felt like Cabrera really started to press as he got deeper into that stretch. Of course, with being a career hitter like Cabrera is, you’re going to have a stretch like that during the season.
I can’t sit here and type out any big improvements he needs to make defensively. If anything, he out-performed some expectations of him in the field. He’s not the rangiest shortstop in the league, but he is certainly a passable defensive shortstop.
Cabrera did have knee issues that he battled through. Outside of the in-season injury that kept him out for a couple of weeks in August, Cabrera also strained his knee in spring training.
Even through all that, Cabrera still suited up and played in 141 games last season.
