Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes that Everth Cabrera could become a "consideration" for the Blue Jays.
Cabrera was non-tendered by the Padres in December after a 2014 season filled with on-field and off-field troubles. His off-field issues actually date back several years. He should come pretty cheap, and the Jays have a need at second base. Cabrera would have legitimate fantasy value as a base-stealer if he gets regular playing time in 2015. Jan 22 - 1:14 PM

Everth Cabrera pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor account of resisting arrest Thursday.

Cabrera was detained in San Diego County on September 3 for driving under the influence of marijuana. He requested the counter arraignment in lieu of the formal proceeding, which was scheduled to begin Monday, the same day the Winter Meetings get underway in San Diego. A readiness hearing is now scheduled for January 14.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Everth Cabrera is not a consideration for the Mets.

The Mets are reportedly weighing their options at shortstop, so it's only natural that Cabrera would come up as a possibility after he was non-tendered by the Padres on Tuesday. However, the club will apparently look elsewhere. Cabrera is coming off a rough season following a PED suspension in 2013 and has also had some off-the-field issues.

Padres non-tendered SS Everth Cabrera.

Cabrera led the National League in steals in 2012 and made the All-Star team in 2013, but he hit just .232/.272/.300 in 2014 and the Padres didn't want to pay him the $2.9 million projected he'd make in arbitration. The shortstop's off-the-field issues likely also played a part in the decision. Cabrera won't have trouble finding a new home. Alexi Amarista is likely the top in-house option to replace Cabrera at shortstop.

San Diego’s District Attorney’s office has filed a criminal complaint against Everth Cabrera for resisting an officer's order during his September arrest for DUI.

Cabrera was detained in San Diego County on September 3 for driving under the influence of marijuana and now his list of charges is growing. San Diego's DA office has also filed a vehicle infraction for possession of marijuana against the 27-year-old shortstop. These are all misdemeanor offenses, and Cabrera will probably be punished with fines instead of jail time.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) is done for the season.

Cabrera was placed on the disabled list August 12 with a left hamstring strain and got busted for driving under the influence of marijuana on September 3 -- the day he was supposed to begin a minor league rehab assignment at High-A Lake Elsinore. Cabrera will finish 2014 with a dreadful .232/.272/.300 slash line and 18 stolen bases in 90 games.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) is not expected to rejoin the Padres before the end of their homestand on September 24.

That would leave just a handful of road games left, so Cabrera's return at all at this point is looking up in the air. The speedy shortstop has played just 10 games since the beginning of July due to a pair of hamstring injuries.

The Padres are hoping to get Everth Cabrera (hamstring) back at some point during their September 15-24 homestand.

Cabrera is currently working out in the Instructional League. He's been sidelined since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but could provide a few steals in the final weeks for fantasy owners that might need them.

Everth Cabrera is unlikely to rejoin the Padres this weekend.

"Let's see how this whole process plays out, even how his hamstring is," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I still think there's some information-gathering with MLB and authorities that I'm not privy to. Organizationally, we're gonna wait for all this to get settled and cleared. Then if this all plays out positively, he can get active." Cabrera was reportedly arrested for a DUI last week, likely what Black is alluding to. He's also been dealing with a hamstring strain. It sounds like a suspension of some sort may be coming down the pipe.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list this weekend.

He's been out since mid-August with a strained left hamstring but has apparently made good progress in recent days. Cabrera has hit just .232/.272/.300 when healthy this season and might not be guaranteed his starting role when he returns.

TMZ is reporting that Everth Cabrera was arrested in San Diego early Wednesday morning on DUI charges.

Marijuana, not alcohol, was the culprit here, according to the report. Either way, it's another black mark on Cabrera's career, already marred by domestic violence charges in 2012 (later dropped) and a Biogenesis-related 50-game suspension last year. He's been terrible on the field this year, too, so it seems pretty unlikely that he'll be back with the Padres in 2015. Right now, he's on the DL with a strained hamstring and iffy to return this season.

Padres manager Bud Black said Thursday of Everth Cabrera's injured left hamstring that he "still feels it when he runs."

The Padres aren't going to activate Cabrera until he's 100 percent, so he's not going to travel with the team to Colorado for their weekend series. The club had been hoping to get Cabrera back earlier this week, but his timetable is now up in the air.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) isn't expected to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore until Wednesday.

There had been some hope that Cabrera would be activated from the disabled list on Monday, but obviously that's not going to happen. However, it sounds like he could return before the end of the week.

Padres manager Bud Black said Monday that Everth Cabrera (hamstring) has "turned the corner" and could be activated on September 1.

Cabrera resumed baseball activities a few days ago and evidently hasn't had any setbacks. It's not clear whether the speedy shortstop will need a short rehab assignment before being activated.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) is slated to begin jogging on Monday.

Cabrera took some grounders and hit in the batting cage on Thursday. It's sounding like the shortstop has a good chance to be activated on September 1 when rosters expand.
