The 30-year-old might finally get to cash in on a significant deal after two good years in Toronto that folllowed his PED suspension which caused his value to plummet. Cabrera just played out a two-year, $16 million deal and was a hitting machine with the Blue Jays.

The Rangers are going to be searching for a left fielder, even though they might fill the role internally with the likes of Dan Robertson, Jake Smolinski and Mitch Moreland. But a guy like Cabrera, at the right price, would really solidify the Rangers' lineup and given the extra bat they need.
