Description: The Padres will look to use Jorge Cantu in multiple positions in order to keep his bat in the line-up. SOURCE: MLB.com
Insight: The Padres offense will not produce many fantasy-worthy players. However, in NL-only leagues, Cantu could be valuable because of his positional flexibility. He is a good player to target late in drafts to round out your roster in NL-only leagues.

Description: Jorge Cantu has agreed on a one-year deal with San Diego. SOURCE: MARTY CASWELL
Insight: A good signing for the Padres. Cantu should have received more attention. He can play 1B and a little 3B for them and will be a good backup player.

Description: Few teams are interested in Jorge Cantu. The Padres have expressed interest but only in a minor league deal. SOURCE: JON HEYMAN
Insight: Cantu deserves more attention. He has been a solid hitter in recent years and struggled in the second half of 2010 while in a part-time role with Texas. Expect him to be on a major league roster on opening day. His relative lack of power for a 1B is his biggest problem.

Description: The Diamondbacks are looking at the possibility of signing Jorge Cantu to play 1B for them in 2011. SOURCE: Buster Olney via Twitter
Insight: For fantasy purposes, 1B is a deep spot and Cantu would have minimal value in mixed leagues. HOwever, for NL-only leagues, Cantu would be a solid value after the big names like Pujols and Votto are off the board...and he would be much cheaper.

Description: Jorge Cantu has been traded to the Rangers for two minor league pitchers. SOURCE: USA TODAY
Insight: The Rangers apparently like how he can play 1B and 3B and will consider him at 2B. This trade hurts the value of Chris Davis and he isn't a mixed league option now. Once Ian Kinsler returns, Cantu should settle in at 1B. Emilio Bonifacio could settle in at 3B for the Marlins.

Description: The Rangers are still talking with the Marlins about acquiring infielder Jorge Cantu prior to Saturday's nonwaiver trading deadline. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: If Cantu switches leagues, he is worth a look for AL-only owners looking for power. The only question is how much playing time he would get in Texas. If Chris Davis continues to struggle, Cantu could be the everyday 1B.

Description: Reports indicate that the Rangers are looking to acquire Jorge Cantu to improve their infield depth. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: Texas is also looking at Orioles IF Ty Wigginton. Either player would lose value, as they would be acquired to be a bench player. However, in the spacious confines in Texas, either player would have great value if they were able to get regular AB's.
