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.

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.

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.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-5 and swatted a two-run bomb versus the Braves on Wednesday.

After Jose Reyes walked and stole second base in the first inning, Cabrera jolted one over the right field fence for his 21st homer of the season. He has a .278 batting average to go with 52 RBI and 61 runs scored. He had a pedestrian first half of the season but has really turned it on since the All Star break.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

He also added a stolen base. The Mets managed just eight hits on the night, as Cabrera was the only one with more than one. He's been on quite a roll since returning from the disabled list late last month, batting .365 with seven homers and 17 RBI over 30 games.

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

He was forced to leave Friday's game in the eighth inning due to leg cramps, but it appears to have been only a minor issue. He'll bat second against Ervin Santana and the Twins on Saturday.

Asdrubal Cabrera was forced to leave Friday's game against the Twins due to leg cramps.

The Mets are calling his early exit precautionary, so he should return to the starting lineup on Saturday. He also clubbed his 20th homer of the season before departing Friday's contest.
Sat, Sep 17, 2016 12:09:00 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera connected for a solo homer run and walked twice against the Twins on Friday.

After Jose Reyes led off the bottom of the third inning with a solo blast, Cabrera followed with a bomb of his own. The veteran infielder is still hobbled with a knee injury (and left Friday’s game after the eighth inning due to leg cramping), but he’s now reached 20 homers for the first time since 2011. His .800 OPS is the best of his career.

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) continued his power surge in his return to the lineup on Friday against the Nationals by going 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk.

His fourth-inning bomb off A.J. Cole was the only offense of the night for New York. Cabrera initially hit a long drive which landed foul before homering to right-center field on the very next pitch. The veteran infielder now has six homers over his last eight games and is batting .274/.326/.465 overall to go along with 19 homers and 47 RBI. He was held out of the starting lineup on Thursday due to a knee issue (and later homered in a pinch-hit appearance), but you wouldn’t know it by how he’s hitting right now.

Asdrubal Cabrera hit his 18th home run of the season, a two-run shot, in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

Cabrera didn't make the start but was called on to pinch-hit in the ninth. And hit he did, taking Marlins reliever Fernando Rodney deep for the two-run blast. Cabrera is now hitting .272/.322/.457 with those 18 homers, 46 RBI and 49 runs scored on the year.
