    Fernando Cabrera DFA?

    From RotoWorld:


    The Indians are expected to designate Fernando Cabrera for assignment to make room for Aaron Fultz, who is due to come off the DL.

    The club has tried to harness Cabrera's potential, but it just hasn't happened. A trade is likely. His is the type of arm every non-contender should be looking to acquire.
    Here's another guy that would be an interseting bullpen arm for the Reds. He's has his fair share of problems the last few seasons, but he's a high K pitcher that could turn into a high leverage reliever. Assuming the cost of picking him up isn't too high, this is a move worth considerding IMO.

    Here's some stats on Cabrera:

    Code:
    Season	Team	W	L	ERA	G	GS	CG	ShO	SV	BS	IP	TBF	H	R	ER	HR	BB	IBB	HBP	WP	BK	SO
    
    2005	Indians	2	1	1.47	15	0	0	0	0	0	30.2	124	24	7	5	1	11	1	0	1	1	29
    2006	Indians	3	3	5.19	51	0	0	0	0	4	60.2	256	53	36	35	12	32	2	1	5	0	71
    2007	Indians	1	2	5.61	24	0	0	0	0	0	33.2	157	38	22	21	7	22	3	0	1	0	39

    Code:
    Season	Team	  K/9	 BB/9	K/BB	HR/9	 AVG	WHIP	BABIP	LOB%	 FIP   GB/FB   HR/FB
    
    2005	Indians	  8.51	 3.23	2.64	0.29	.217	1.14	.286	83.3 %	 2.81   0.97     0.0%
    2006	Indians	  10.53	 4.75	2.22	1.78	.237	1.40	.291	72.3 %	 5.06   0.77   18.5 %
    2007	Indians	  10.43	 5.88	1.77	1.87	.286	1.78	.357	75.7 %	 5.55   0.79   16.7 %
    I would like to note that Cabrera has been very unlucky the last few seasons. The HR/FB rates are unsustainably high, even if he pitches in the GABP. He's really been more effective then his ERA would lead you to believe. Considering how good his arm is, I think this is a risk that you need to take. There is a lot of potential here to perhaps get a back-end reliever.

    Sad, but true. If this guy was 37 and a veteran of 5 or more teams, WK would be a madman right now.

    I don't see him passing through waivers, he certainly has the stuff. Hopefully the Reds can get a claim in on him and work out a deal.

    Well, they have to get rid of him within 10 days. So, if someone claims him, Cleveland will have to trade him to them or release him.

    One would think the DRays are the team that will end up with him.

    no reason not to but he has to pass through waivers before he can be traded. Someone in front of the Reds will likely claim him on waivers, thus making it moot.
