Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with three RBI as the Rays topped the Astros on Monday.

Cabrera got the scoring started in the first inning with an RBI single. He'd add a run in the fifth on a sacrifice fly, and one more in the ninth with another RBI single. Cabrera has been white-hot since coming off of the disabled list on July 28, batting .477 (31-for-65) with three home runs and 10 RBI.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

Cabrera's now smacked 24 two-baggers for the season. He's been smoldering of late, with hits in 14 of his last 15 games. 10 of those games have seen multi-hit efforts by the shortstop, who is now slashing .265/.314/.414 with seven homers, 28 RBI, 43 runs scored and four steals on the year.

Asdrubal Cabrera (head) is back in the Rays' lineup Friday.

Cabrera had to exit Wednesday's game after taking a Curt Casali throw off the side of his head, but he passed concussion tests and is ready to go. He's batting .515 during his current nine-game hitting streak.

Asdrubal Cabrera has passed concussion tests.

Cabrera was removed from Wednesday's extra-innings loss to the White Sox shortly after taking a Curt Casali throw off the side of his head. He does have a contusion, but the Rays' scheduled off day Thursday should help matters. The 29-year-old shortstop went 4-for-5 on Wednesday and is batting .249/.301/.399 on the season.
Aug 6 - 8:57 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a home run and three runs scored as the Rays trounced the White Sox 11-3 on Tuesday.

Cabrera hit one of the Rays' four homers on the night, taking reliever Daniel Webb deep in the seventh inning. It was his third consecutive two-hit game and extended his hitting streak to a modest eight games. Cabrera has raised his average 21 points in that span, and he's now hitting .241/.294/.390 with seven homers on the season.
Aug 5 - 12:18 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera belted a solo homer in Wednesday's loss to the Tigers.

Cabrera's solo shot in the fifth inning represented the lone run for the Rays. He also gave it back and then some, as a crucial error by the shortstop in the seventh led to the Tigers' only two runs. Cabrera is batting just .231/.281/.373 for Tampa this season.

Rays activated SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Cabrera missed just one day more than the minimum with a strained right hamstring. He's hitting .223/.275/.352 for the Rays this season.
Jul 28 - 10:03 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

Cabrera played in his first rehab game with High-A Charlotte on Monday and evidently that's all he needed. The veteran shortstop will have missed just one day more than the minimum with a strained right hamstring.
Jul 27 - 10:43 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) is set to begin a rehab assignment Monday night with High-A Port Charlotte.

Cabrera, who's been out since July 12 with a strained right hamstring, will play between five and seven innings in his first rehab game. The expectation is that his rehab assignment will be a short one. "He's a veteran guy, so he gives us as good a sense as anybody as to when he thinks he's ready," manager Kevin Cash said Sunday. "But I know he's itching to get back."
Jul 27 - 10:00 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will resume baseball activities early this week.

It shouldn't take him too long to get back up to speed since he's only missed a week of action. A return before the end of the month for Cabrera would seem to be possible.
Jul 19 - 11:59 AM

Rays placed SS Asdrubal Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined, but obviously the MRI showed a significant enough strain to where Cabrera needs some time off. Tim Beckham has replaced Cabrera on the roster and will likely share shortstop with Jake Elmore while Cabrera is out.
Jul 12 - 11:16 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) will undergo an MRI Sunday.

Cabrera exited Saturday's game against the Astros with a strained right hamstring. It's possible the ailment will require a disabled list stint, but we'll just have to wait and see what the exam says. Tim Beckham has been added to the taxi squad in case Cabrera has to go on the DL.
Jul 12 - 10:09 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera left Saturday's game against the Astros with a strained right hamstring.

He suffered the injury scoring on Rene Rivera's RBI single in the second inning. Jake Elmore replaced him at shortstop the following inning. It's unlikely Cabrera will be available for Sunday's series finale. Until he gets his test results back, we'll consider him day-to-day.
Jul 11 - 10:47 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera had an RBI double and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Cabrera's hit was just the second of the game for the Rays, who were kept mostly in check by Indians starter Danny Salazar. The run batted in and run scored gave Cabrera 20 RBI and 24 runs scored on the year. He's hitting just .226/.280/.357 overall.
