Asdrubal Cabrera is not in Friday's lineup due to an unspecified leg issue.

It's unclear what Cabrera is dealing with, but apparently he's been bothered by it for a few days. Consider him day-to-day. Jose Reyes is filling in at shortstop, while Juan Lagares is batting second.

Asdrubal Cabrera didn't start against the Marlins on Sunday but wound up plating the club's only two runs with a two-run single in the ninth inning.

The Mets rallied to tie the game off of David Phelps in the top half of the ninth inning, only to have their hopes dashed the next half inning. Cabrera is off to a strong start offensively, slashing .286/.310/.429 with nine RBI.

Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

Apr 16 - 10:35 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera finished with a solo homer and a pair of runs scored in four at-bats Saturday against the Marlins.

Cabrera is off to a decent start with a pair of homers, four extra-base hits and seven RBI through his first 12 outings. He didn't swat his second homer of the 2016 season until May 4 and he still ended up with 23 homers.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 4-for-6 with a solo homer and RBI single versus the Phillies on Tuesday.

The Mets pounded out 20 hits and 14 runs against the Philadelphia pitching staff, as they had four hitters with at least three hits and belted seven home runs. Cabrera's longball off of Adam Morgan was his first of the season.
Apr 11 - 11:03 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-5 with an RBI single, a stolen base, and a run scored in Monday’s Opening Day victory over the Braves.

All three hits were singles. Cabrera finally got the Mets on the board in the bottom of the seventh inning after Wilmer Flores was called safe after a replay review. The veteran shortstop amassed 23 home runs with a career-best .810 OPS over 141 games last season and didn’t get much respect in fantasy leagues this spring. He’s expected to serve as the Mets’ regular No. 2 hitter, so perhaps that should change.
Apr 3 - 4:33 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera hit his second spring homer Wednesday off the Astros' Tony Sipp.

Cabrera was disappointed about being left off Venezuela's WBC squad, and he had a good case, given that Freddy Galvis was taken over him. He's struggled in recent springs, which might have worked against him in the team's eyes. In fact, the homer today gave him his first multihomer spring since 2011. He's now 3-for-15 this spring.
Mar 8 - 4:32 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera will not play for Team Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic.

Cabrera expressed a desire to participate in the March tournament and was told he would be on the team by manager Omar Vizquel, but GM Carlos Guillen left his name off the roster. "I am disappointed," Cabrera told told Diario Meridiano’s Jesus Ponte. "Vizquel spoke to me and told me I was on the team, and now Carlos Guillen comes and removes me." Alcides Escobar and Freddy Galvis are Venezuela's other shortstop options. Those are two good players, but Asdrubal is definitely better. The 31-year-old will spend the entire spring with the Mets instead.
Feb 9 - 1:34 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera will not require surgery for his left knee injury.

Cabrera suffered a strained patella tendon during spring training and played through it for the entire season. He required a stint on the disabled list at the start of August, but returned two weeks later and finished the year red-hot at the plate. He recently met with doctors for a checkup on the knee, but surgery was deemed not necessary. In the first year of a two-year, $18.5 million contract with the Mets, the 30-year-old Cabrera batted .280 with 23 homers and a career-high .810 OPS.

Asdrubal Cabrera reached base four times and drove in two runs in Monday's loss to the Marlins.

Cabrera plated a couple runs in the fifth inning after the Marlins had jumped out to a 7-0 lead. He also had a single and a couple walks on the night, continuing his red-hot hitting in spite of the fact that he's been battling some nagging injuries. He's batting .367 since returning from the disabled list last month.

Asdrubal Cabrera finished 2-for-5 with four RBI in the Mets' 17-0 rout of the Phillies on Sunday.

That's not a football score. Jose Reyes also drove in four runs for the Mets in the afternoon outburst at Citi Field, and Curtis Granderson slugged his 30th home run of the season. Cabrera singled in the sixth inning and popped a grand slam off Frank Herrmann in the seventh. The veteran shortstop has been a steadying force for the Mets all season, now with a .281/.336/.482 batting line and 23 homers in 135 games.

Asdrubal Cabrera (quadriceps) returned to the Mets starting lineup on Saturday.

Cabrera was forced to make an early exit on Friday due to soreness in his right quad, it isn't enough to keep him out of Saturday's lineup though. He'll bat second against Alec Asher and the Phillies on Saturday.

Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Friday's game against the Phillies with a sore right quadriceps.

Cabrera is sore from fouling a ball off of his leg, but he was able to avoid any significant injury which is a big sigh of relief for the Mets. He could sit out on Saturday as a precautionary measure, but isn't expected to be sidelined for long.

Asdrubal Cabrera was the hero in Thursday's marathon, 11-inning win over the Phillies, hitting a three-run, walk-off homer in the 9-8 victory.

Cabrera had three hits in the game, none bigger than the blast to right field in the 11th with two runners on to save the day -- and perhaps the Mets' season. He knew it, too, delivering an all-time bat flip toward an ecstatic Mets dugout before rounding the bases and being mobbed at home plate. It's been a magical season for the 30-year-old, who has 22 home runs in his first year with the Metropolitans. Cabrera is batting .281/.335/.480 through 132 games overall.
