According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, "it's not impossible" that the Rays would bring back free agent SS Asdrubal Cabrera.
The Rays traded for Brad Miller on November 5. Miller's likely to be the starting shortstop entering the 2016 season, but Topkin speculates that the team could still re-sign Cabrera if there's not a strong market for the 30-year-old infielder. He hit .265/.315/.430 with 15 homers and 58 RBI across 505 at-bats during the 2015 season. In the 2014 offseason, he signed a one-year, $7.5 million contract with the Rays. A similar deal, Topkin writes, could be in the cards once more if Cabrera doesn't find a multi-year deal from another club. Nov 15 - 9:47 AM
