Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera will be the everyday shortstop for the Rays, according to team officials. There was talk that diminished range could opt the team to move him to second base, but he played well enough this spring to stay at short.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is modestly priced and will be a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera is expected to be an everyday player, according to Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune. Cabrera has experience at both second base and shortstop, and how adept Rays SS Nick Franklin proves to be playing shortstop could determine which position Cabrera fills. Rays 2B Logan Forsythe could platoon, facing left-handed pitchers, at second base with Franklin while also backing up Rays 1B James Loney and Rays 3B Evan Longoria.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is a low-end starter at second base or shortstop -- a better fit at middle infield -- in fantasy leagues. Franklin is a late-round flier who could prove capable of starting at the middle infield spot on fantasy teams very early in the season.
