Shifted to second base, Asdrubal Cabrera asks Mets for trade

June 23, 2017 - 10:27 pm

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Activated from the disabled list and inserted into the New York Mets' starting lineup at second base rather than shortstop, Asdrubal Cabrera said he wants to be traded.

The 31-year-old, a two-time All-Star and a veteran of 11 big league seasons, had not started at second since Sept. 28, 2014. The Mets started Jose Reyes at shortstop against San Francisco on Friday night and Wilmer Flores at third.

"I am not happy about it," Cabrera said after meeting with manager Terry Collins and general manager Sandy Alderson. "I got to do my job, no matter what position, try to help my team, my teammates. I have to help them, help my team. I am just playing for my guys, my players, my teammates, I am going to do my 100 percent."
