Asdrubal Cabrera finished 4-for-6 and hit a game-winning, three-run home run in the 11th inning Saturday to give the Mets a 7-4 win over the Phillies.

Cabrera hit an RBI double in the seventh inning and, with the game tied in the 11th, untied it with a big fly to left-center field. The homer was the 14th of the year for the 31-year-old. Cabrera followed up on a career year offensively with another strong showing, batting .280/.351/.434 and proving that 2016 wasn't a fluke. The Mets will almost certainly exercise their $8.25 million club option for 2018, even if only to deal him in the offseason.
Oct 1 - 1:16 AM

The Record's Matt Ehalt writes that "it seems the Mets are likely to exercise" Asdrubal Cabrera's $8.5 million option for 2018.

They would owe him a $2 million buyout if they declined the option. Cabrera, who turns 32 in November, has dealt with some injuries this season but has hit a solid .273/.346/.422 while making over 30 starts at each of shortstop, second and third base. He would be an option to start at either second or third in 2018, depending on what additions the Mets make over the offseason.

Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Braves.

Phillip Evans will make the start at the hot corner and bat cleanup against right-hander Lucas Sims. Cabrera figures to be in there for the nightcap.

Asdrubal Cabrera hit his 13th home run of the season Sunday in the Mets' defeat of the Braves.

It was a pinch-hit two-run shot in the top of the ninth inning off Braves reliever Jose Ramirez. Cabrera is finishing strong here in September and has raised his season slash line to .280/.350/.440. The 31-year-old infielder holds an $8.25 million club option (or $2 million buyout) for the 2018 campaign.
Sep 17 - 4:43 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

Cabrera had two singles and a double. He’s been on an absolute tear of late, hitting .607 (17-for-28) over his last nine games. His batting average has soared from .256 to .279 during that time. Cabrera’s contract includes an $8.25 million club option (or a $2 million buyout) for 2018 and the Mets will probably give strong consideration to picking it up.

Asdrubal Cabrera singled twice and added a double Tuesday versus the Cubs.

The Mets managed only seven hits as a team, and Cabrera and Amed Rosario had five of them. Cabrera has quietly been red-hot at the dish over the last few weeks, batting .390 with three homers and 13 RBI over his last 17 games.

Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored against the Reds on Saturday in his return to the lineup.

After missing Friday's contest with a sore hamstring, Cabrera was back in there Saturday and doubled and scored on a Dominic Smith single in the sixth inning, then doubled again in the seventh to drive in Nori Aoki with another run. Cabrera is having a pretty good season for the Mets but isn't setting the fantasy world on fire. He has a .268 batting average with 12 home runs, 48 RBI and 61 runs scored in 116 games.

With Amed Rosario (finger) also sidelined, the Mets have Gavin Cecchini at second base, Matt Reynolds at third and Jose Reyes at shortstop.
