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.

Starting shortstop Jason Bartlett is hitting .135 and starting second baseman Orlando Hudson is hitting .204, so without the domestic violence charge Cabrera might already be back in the majors.

    Keep your offense on the field, kiddo.

    Couldn’t understand why they keep running Bartlett and Parrino out to SS and kept Cabrera in AAA. This explains a lot.

    Padres are practically begging for a SS who can hit above .200 and Cabrera messed it up. Talk about blowing a chance
