Cincinnati Reds acquire Venezuelan Asdrúbal Cabrera waivers

The Cincinnati Reds reinforce themselves in a good way and they have claimed the Venezuelan and veteran infielder, Asdrúbal Cabrera, from the MLB waiver list from the Arizona Diamondbacks, announced the desert novena on Friday.

The 35-year-old Cabrera could have a chance to play for another contender after leaving for a D-backs team. The Venezuelan was part of the 2019 Nationals that won the World Series, as he played 38 regular season games for the capital after being released from Texas.

Cabrera hit 18 home runs that season, including six for Washington, before hitting .286 with three RBIs against the Astros in the Fall Classic.

Cabrera played 90 games for the D-backs of 2021, in which he had a line of .244 / .324 / .392 with seven homers and saw action mainly as a third baseman.

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I am going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
