Everth Cabrera is hitting .325 with 13 steals at Triple-A, so what’s keeping the Padres from calling up the 25-year-old former big leaguer for some middle infield help?
Dan Hayes of the North County Times reports that Cabrera was arrested during spring training and charged with misdemeanor assault for an alleged domestic violence incident.
According to Hayes there’s a pretrial conference next week and the Padres have confirmed the arrest, with general manager Josh Byrnes saying:
We’re looking at our options to see where we can improve our roster. As it pertains to Everth, we want to be aware of his legal issues. We just have to be aware of it and we’ll act accordingly.
