Baltimore Orioles SS Everth Cabrera, who was signed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with $600,000 in incentives, could compete for a utility infield role with 2Bs Ryan Flaherty and Jayson Nix.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is just a year removed from stealing 37 bases with the San Diego Padres, and the year before that he had 44 thefts. He's obviously best known for his speed, and he could make an impact on deep mixed rosters if he sees enough playing time. He's worth a late-round stab if you're looking to add some steals.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are expected to place OF Andrew McCutchen (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of an oblique injury, and he could be out at least three to four weeks, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Starling Marte likely will take over in center field when he comes off the seven-day disabled list. Travis Snider likely will see most of the playing time while McCutchen is out but could also be part of a platoon with a right-handed hitter. Jose Tabata, Michael Martinez, Jayson Nix and Matt Hague are options to see playing time as part of a platoon but likely would only be options in NL-only leagues. Owners in deeper mixed leagues should look to add Snider if they have the chance.
