Report: Melky Cabrera not interested in playing on artificial surface
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The chances of free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera returning to the Blue Jays aren't looking good, and it may be because of Toronto's playing surface.

According to Buster Olney of ESPN on Thursday, Cabrera's preference is to sign with a team other than the Blue Jays so he doesn't have to play his home games on artificial surface. The Blue Jays play in Rogers Centre, which uses Astroturf Gameday Grass. At home last season, Cabrera slashed .304/.352/.454 with seven home runs and 38 RBI over 273 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday he has talked with free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera, but "right now, we're not close to anything," according to MLB Network Radio. Anthopoulos added they would like to re-sign Cabrera.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reported Thursday the White Sox are the latest team to show interest in Cabrera and could consider pursuing the veteran outfielder in free agency. Cabrera hit .301 with 16 home runs, 35 doubles and 73 RBI in 139 games in 2014.

White Sox showing interest in outfielder Melky Cabrera
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The White Sox are the latest team to show interest in Melky Cabrera and could consider pursuing the veteran outfielder in free agency, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

The White Sox struggled from the No. 2 spot in the batting order in 2014, posting a .279 on-base percentage as a team, which was 29th out of 30 teams. White Sox No. 2 hitters also posted a .634 OPS, which ranked 24th.

If the White Sox pursue Cabrera, then they could be competing against the likes of Toronto, Baltimore and Seattle to sign the 30-year-old outfielder. Cabrera hit .301 with 16 home runs, 35 doubles and 73 RBI in 139 games in 2014.
