2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: ASDRUBAL CABRERA THE LATEST NEW YORK MET SENT PACKING

The dismantling of the simply awful 2018 New York Mets took another step forward on Friday as the team sent second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera to the division rival Philadelphia Phillies for power arm pitching prospect Franklyn Kilome.  Finishing out his last season on his contract, even at the age of 33 Cabrera has been very good this season as he goes into action Saturday with 18 home runs, 58 RBI, 48 runs scored, and a .277 average.  The power has been the real asset with Cabrera this season as he currently is on pace to post a career-best in home runs which came all the way back in 2011 when he smacked 25 for the Cleveland Indians.  A steady veteran year in and year out who always seems to post solid numbers, Cabrera has been the epitome of an underrated asset in yearly fantasy baseball leagues.  While he doesn't run anymore (zero steals), Cabrera should certainly be able to set that career-high in homers now that he will be moving from a pitching-dominant home ballpark with the Mets to a homer haven in Philadelphia.
