37-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Detroit Tigers
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Cabrera will be 37 shortly after Opening Day, so it is mind blowing to see that the aging player is still due another $132 million on his contract. He has four more seasons where he will make at least $30 million until his employer is afforded the option to buy out his deal. Cabrera, around his injuries, has one fewer homer over the past two seasons than he had in the 2017 season alone. He can hit for a strong average in his sleep as he has hit below .280 just twice in his 17-year career. The larger issue is that the power that was once a mainstay in his stat line is gone. He has exceeded 20 HR just once in the past five seasons, and the decline in homers has suppressed his ability to drive in runners. The aging curve accelerates from here, so hitting .280 with 20 homers would be an accomplishment for him in 2020. On draft day, when someone nominates him for $1, let someone else cling to the glory days. Read Past Outlooks
