Washington Nationals SS Asdrubal Cabrera, making the start at second base in his team debut Friday, Aug. 1, against the Philadelphia Phillies, was hitless in four at-bats.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is expected to get a majority of the starts at second base down the stretch, and he should gain eligibility there soon in all fantasy formats. It might take a little bit for him to adjust to a new league, but he remains a solid fantasy option in most formats.

The Cleveland Indians have received 2B Zach Walters from the Washington Nationals as part of the SS Asdrubal Cabrera deal.
Fantasy Tip: With Mike Aviles the likely replacement at shortstop, Walters or Jose Ramirez will likely be sent to the minors. Aviles gets a huge boost to his fantasy value. He has proven to be a low-end middle infielder in the past. Everyday at-bats make Aviles a viable option in the majority of formats.

The Washington Nationals have acquired SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the Cleveland Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera figures to bat lower in the order with the Nationals, which will potentially hinder his counting stats. A new location could help Cabrera turn his season around, though. He should play the keystone position and should be owned in all NL-only leagues and deep mixed formats. He is worth considering in standard mixed leagues. Danny Espinosa will lose playing time, and the deal likely confirms the seriousness of Ryan Zimmerman's hamstring tear. Any further fantasy contribution from Zimmerman in 2014 should be considered a bonus. Anthony Rendon projects to continue manning the hot corner, which after all, is his natural position.

Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera is being looked at by the Toronto Blue Jays as they look for an everyday second baseman. Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Martin Prado and 2B Aaron Hill are considered to be too expensive. Cabrera is hitting .249 with nine home runs and 40 RBIs this year.
Fantasy Tip: A move to Toronto for Cabrera and into a better lineup would look good for increasing his fantasy value. He'd be in a much more potent lineup and in a home environment that is more conducive to power hitting.
