Two-time MLB All-Star Asdrubal Cabrera brutally smacked out his rival batter during a crazy moment in the Venezuela Professional Baseball winter league Saturday night.

Cabrera, currently an MLB free agent after stints in Arizona, Cincinnati, Cleveland, New York (Mets), Philadelphia, Tampa, Texas and Washington, delivered a sickening blow to opponent, Carlos Castro. 

The Tiburones de La Guaira hitter had slugged his third home run of the night and celebrated with an exuberant bat-flip.

Castro wasn’t done there and made sure he jawed with the Caribes de Anzoategui bench as well.

Cabrera was clearly unhappy with the outward celebrations and decided to take matters into his own hands.

The former Texas Ranger pulled a page from the WWE playbook of legendary Texan wrestler JBL, delivering a hellacious clothesline which brutally sat Castro down. 

His body was limp as he hit the dirt, though Cabrera soon followed him to the ground as he was knocked over in the ensuing scuffle.

It is unknown whether Castro returned to the game but his team did get the last laugh, winning 6-4 over Cabrera’s team in what must have been another source of frustration for the already-emotional Venezuelan. 

Cabrera played in the Majors for 15 years, starting his career with the then-Cleveland Indians. 

The 37-year-old received back-to-back All-Star nods in 2011 and 2012 while in a Cleveland uniform. 

Cabrera became a world champion during his second stint with the Washington Nationals in 2019, after being released by Texas in August of that year.
