San Diego Padres
NEW YORK -- The Mets are looking for alternatives to Wilmer Flores at shortstop, but Everth Cabrera is not a consideration, according to team insiders. Cabrera was non-tendered by the San Diego Padres on Tuesday.
Cabrera, 28, hit .232 with three homers, 20 RBIs and 18 steals and had a .272 on-base percentage in 2014. He also faces criminal charges after allegedly resisting arrest in San Diego.
Cabrera did represent the Padres in the 2013 All-Star Game.
