Asdrubal Cabrera is starting at second base on Friday against the Giants.

The veteran infielder isn't happy about the switch back to a position that he hasn't played since September of 2014. In fact, he's now hoping to be traded. The .193-hitting Jose Reyes is starting at shortstop and batting eighth for the Mets on Friday.

Mets activated INF Asdrubal Cabrera from the 10-day disabled list.

Notice that we listed Cabrera as an infielder and not just a shortstop, as it sounds like the Mets might be leaning toward moving him over to second base. We'll find out for sure when they release Friday's lineup.
Jun 23 - 5:51 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said the team will consider moving Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) to second base when he returns from the disabled list.

Cabrera is expected to return on Friday. He's already made 11 errors this year and Collins would prefer to keep Jose Reyes at shortstop. T.J. Rivera has been filling in at second base for Neil Walker, who is out with a torn hamstring. Cabrera has started 197 games at second base in his career, though he hasn't played there since 2014.
Jun 22 - 8:28 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on Friday.

He'll begin a rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie on Tuesday. Cabrera has made two trips to the disabled list over the last month due to a left thumb injury, but both stays on the DL will be short. The 31-year-old is hitting just .244/.321/.392 this season and continues to fade defensively at shortstop.

Mets placed SS Asdrubal Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list with a left thumb sprain.

Cabrera hit a pair of solo home runs on Monday, but the thumb injury that sent him to the DL last month is apparently still an issue. He will receive a cortisone shot and it's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. The Mets didn't call up Amed Rosario to replace Cabrera, which means Jose Reyes will handle shortstop.
Jun 13 - 3:10 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera clobbered a pair of solo home runs off of John Lackey on Monday, powering the Mets to a 6-1 victory over the Cubs.

Cabrera got the Mets on the board with a solo shot in the second inning, then victimized Lackey again his next time up in the fourth inning. He finished the night 2-for-4 and is now slashing .244/.321/.392 with six homers, 20 RBI and three stolen bases.
Jun 12 - 9:39 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the Mets' loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

The veteran shortstop is hitless over his last three games and batting just .243/.320/.355 for the year. Cabrera hit .280/.336/.474 in 2016.
Jun 4 - 4:12 PM

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

Jose Reyes is starting at shortstop and Wilmer Flores is at third base in the Mets' series finale versus Milwaukee right-hander Chase Anderson. This looks to be a routine day of rest for Cabrera.
Jun 1 - 10:18 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-5 with an RBI double against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Cabrera's offense might have just made up for him botching a popup and costing the Mets two runs in the seventh inning. Cabrera is batting .265 with three homers and 17 RBI in 39 games for the year. The Mets have taken to batting him low in the order lately, even though that means Jose Reyes is back making tons of outs at the top of the order.
May 31 - 12:01 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-5 with a double Friday versus the Pirates.

Cabrera grounded into a double play on Thursday against the Padres, but this was his first start since returning from the disabled list. The 31-year-old has dealt with bumps and bruises so far this season while batting .252/.331/.378 through 35 games. With Cabrera back in the lineup on Friday, Jose Reyes moved back over to third base.
May 26 - 10:13 PM

Mets activated SS Asdrubal Cabrera from the 10-day disabled list.

Cabrera missed a little less than two weeks with a sprained thumb. He's not starting Thursday night's game against the Padres but will be available off the bench. Cabrera carries a .257/.339/.381 slash line with three homers, 14 RBI and three steals this season.
May 25 - 4:19 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) could be activated ahead of Thursday night's game against the Padres.

Cabrera showed up at Citi Field on Thursday afternoon after going 2-for-5 on a two-game minor league rehab assignment with High-A Binghamton. The shortstop has been on the disabled list since May 13 because of lingering soreness in his left thumb. There should be something more official soon.
May 25 - 3:25 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Binghamton.

Cabrera presumably won't need much time before he's deemed ready to return. The veteran shortstop has been sidelined since May 13 due to a lingering injury to his left thumb. Jose Reyes has been handling the bulk of the shortstop duties with Cabrera on the shelf.
May 23 - 2:32 PM

Mets placed SS Asdrubal Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 14, with a left thumb sprain.

Finally. Cabrera originally injured his thumb on May 6, but the Mets waited out the situation before he aggravated it over the weekend. He's evidently not close to returning to action, so the club was forced to make a move this time. Mets fans are clamoring for top prospect Amed Rosario, but the team is content with Jose Reyes at shortstop and T.J. Rivera at third for the time being.
