Asdrubal Cabrera (elbow) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter Wednesday in the Mets' defeat of the Phillies.

Cabrera did not start the game after aggravating a lingering left elbow injury on Tuesday night. It's not a serious issue, clearly. The veteran infielder should be a full-go for Thursday's series opener against the Nationals.

Asdrubal Cabrera (elbow) is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Wednesday night against the Phillies.

Cabrera made an early exit from Tuesday's game after aggravating a previously hyperextended left elbow. It's something that has bothered him for a couple of weeks, but the Mets don't expect him to miss too much time. Wilmer Flores is at second base and batting third Wednesday versus Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez. Jose Reyes is manning the hot corner and hitting eighth.

Asdrubal Cabrera aggravated a previously hyperextended left elbow on Tuesday night.

That explains why he made an early exit from the Mets' eventual loss to the Phillies, though it's not considered a serious re-injury. Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Cabrera could be in the starting lineup Wednesday.
Jul 10 - 10:20 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera swatted a solo home run and an RBI double in the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Cabrera took Zach Eflin over the right-field wall in the first inning and nearly hit another one out in the third when he doubled off the top of the wall. The longball was the 16th this season for Cabrera, who has gone deep three times already in July.
Jul 9 - 8:41 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-4 with an RBI single against the Rays on Friday.

Cabrera gave the Mets the early lead in the third inning before Willy Adames tied it with a solo shot off Jacob deGrom in the fifth. The Mets would eventually win the game when Jose Bautista connected for a walk-off grand slam in the ninth. Cabrera was in a pretty bad funk last month, but he’s now hit safely in nine out of his last 10 games while putting up three homers and eight RBI. He’s been one of the Mets’ best hitters this year and makes for a logical trade candidate this month.
Jul 6 - 10:27 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 and drove in a run during a win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He joined in the fun during the Mets' five-run fifth inning rally by lining a single to right that plated Brandon Nimmo. The veteran infielder has kept his fantasy owners happy by slashing .284/.332/.489 with 15 homers, 48 RBI and 39 runs scored just past the halfway point of the season.
Jul 4 - 10:43 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera clubbed a two-run home run and also drew three walks Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Cabrera's shot off of Marco Estrada in the first inning got the scoring going in this one. He had a rough June but has now gone deep in back-to-back games to kick off July, giving him 15 longballs for the season.
Jul 3 - 10:30 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a homer and two runs scored in a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Cabrera took Dan Straily deep with no one on in the third to give the switch-hitting second baseman 14 on the season. He also walked and came around to score, and his on-base percentage improves to .323 to go along with a .479 slugging percentage for the Mets in 2018 over 79 games.
Jul 1 - 4:39 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera accounted for three of the Mets’ six hits Wednesday in a 5-3 loss to the Pirates.

Cabrera doubled in the first inning, plated Jose Bautista with an RBI single in the third and capped his night with another single in the eighth. As usual, it wasn’t enough as the Mets managed to blow a two-run ninth-inning lead en route to another devastating loss. Cabrera has been a bright spot for the Mets, hitting a respectable .284 with 13 homers and 44 RBI. He’ll probably be one of the first to go if New York blows it up at the trade deadline as many are expecting.
Jun 27 - 11:50 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday against the Rockies.

Cabrera banged his elbow on Wednesday night, but manager Mickey Callaway said this is a scheduled day of rest. Cabrera should be back in action for Friday night's series opener against the Dodgers. Jose Reyes is playing second base and batting seventh for the Mets on Thursday versus Colorado left-hander Kyle Freeland.
Jun 21 - 1:07 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera finished Wednesday's 10-8 loss in Colorado with a single, a double, a walk and two RBI across five at-bats.

Cabrera is working on a four-game multi-hit streak and he has driven in five runs during the outing. His batting average plummeted from .315 to .267 as a result of a 5-for-55 skid (.090) from May 29 to June 16. However, he is working his way back up to a good number and improving his trade stock again leading up to the non-waiver trade deadline.
Jun 21 - 1:13 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a walk and two RBI in Tuesday's 10-8 loss at Colorado.

Cabrera is slashing .275/.316/.476, and he has racked up three consecutive multi-hit contests after an ugly 1-for-20 (.050) skid. Despite the recent cold spell he has been the second-most effective hitter wearing blue and orange behind Brandon Nimmo. He has racked up 29 extra-base hits, including 12 homers, and those numbers will make him attractive leading up to the non-waiver trade deadline.
Jun 20 - 1:24 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's road win against the Diamondbacks.

The month of June has been a nightmare for Cabrera, as he entered the day 5-for-55 (.091) with just one double, a home run and two RBI across his past 15 outings since May 29. As a result his average has dropped from a robust .315 to .270. Hopefully Sunday's multi-hit game and homer will spur him on to a hot streak. Of course, the team returns home this week and he is hitting just .248 with 14 RBI and 29 strikeouts at Citi Field this season.
