Washington Nationals – The combination of ineffective play by Danny Espinosa and third baseman Ryan Zimmerman‘s hamstring injury led the Nationals down this path of acquiring Asdrubal Cabrera. Cabrera will slide into second base while Anthony Rendon will move to third. Cabrera is regarded as a below average glove but has a good bat despite the .246 average he had with Cleveland. – Grade B
