Card of the day:Everth Cabrera

Card: 2009 Icons Everth Cabrera Autograph.

Player: Everth Cabrera

Features: Rookie Card Autograph

This player isn't known outside San Diego. He was chosen in the Rule V Draft last year. Instead of just hiding him away like with many Rule V draftees the Padres decided to make him the starting shortstop.

Only 22 years old Everth has shown some growing pains but he's made some great plays with the glove and at the plate. Cabrera, like many hitters is great away from Petco hitting .281 and terrible at home hitting .194.

The main reason why the Padres got him was because of his speed. In the 40 games he's played he's robbed 10 bases.
