Asdrubal Cabrera hit his seventh home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

The second batter Royals starter Ian Kennedy faced on the evening, Cabrera hit a hanging curve to the opposite field, just clearing the wall in left-center. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The 30-year-old is batting .265/.324/.403 with seven homers, 22 RBI and 26 runs scored in his first season with the Mets.

Asdrubal Cabrera swatted a solo home run off of Clayton Kershaw on Sunday night, but it wasn't enough for the Mets to overcome the Dodgers.

Cabrera's sixth-inning blast pulled the Mets to within a run at 2-1. It was the lone hit in four at-bats on the night for the shortstop who is now slashing .277/.330/.401 with four homers and 18 RBI on the season.

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

Cabrera had to leave Wednesday's game due to back spasms, but he rested up during the off day Thursday and is now ready to go. He's at shortstop and batting second against Julio Urias and the Dodgers.

Asdrubal Cabrera (back) hopes to return for Friday's series opener versus the Dodgers.

Cabrera made an early exit from Wednesday's series finale against the Nationals after experiencing back spasms. "All of a sudden, it locked up on him downstairs as he was stretching," Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday night. "He says he feels fine and will be ready for Friday. I hope he is." Cabrera is batting .283/.335/.392 with three home runs and 17 RBI in 46 games this season for New York.

Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day with back spasms.

Cabrera left Wednesday's game against the Nationals in the bottom of the first inning, with Matt Reynolds taking over at shortstop. Asdrubal apparently felt the discomfort during pregame warmups. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but you never know with the Mets and their recent rash of back issues.
May 25 - 1:28 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera was removed from Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.

Matt Reynolds came on to play shortstop in the bottom of the first inning. Cabrera didn't bat in the top of the first, so this is an odd one. There should be an update from the Mets within the hour.
May 25 - 1:16 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera was 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored Friday against the Giants.

Cabrera contributed to the Mets’ huge third inning with a two-run double. We haven’t seen much power from him thus far, as he has just one home run through 21 games, but he has a strong .312/.369/.416 batting line. The 30-year-old has averaged 15 home runs per season since 2012, so it’s just a matter of time before we see some more pop.

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Braves.

The solo homer was an afterthought in the ninth inning of a five-run game, but it surely was a boost to Cabrera's confidence. Not that he needs it -- the shortstop is hitting .322/.375/.441 through 16 games with his new club. He's hit safely in 13 of those 16 games to date.
Apr 23 - 10:33 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 0-for-3 in his return to the Mets' lineup on Monday.

Cabrera missed 2 1/2 weeks with a knee strain. Barring a setback, he's expected to begin the season on the active roster and probably start on Opening Day. Since the Mets are in Kansas City, he could get a start at DH.

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) will return to Grapefruit League action on Monday.

He had been slated to return Sunday, but the Mets had him play another minor league game instead. Cabrera has been out since March 10 with a strained patella tendon in his left knee, but he's recovered nicely and will be ready to roll come Opening Day.
Mar 27 - 11:09 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

Cabrera had been expected to make his return to Grapefruit League play after missing the last two and a half weeks with a strained patella tendon in his left knee. It's not clear at this point whether he suffered a setback or if the Mets just decided to push him back a bit. The club should address Cabrera's status shortly.
Mar 27 - 10:09 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) will return to Grapefruit League action Sunday against the Nationals.

Cabrera suffered a strained patella tendon early in camp but he's made great progress and now appears to be on track for Opening Day. He logged six at-bats in a minor league game Thursday but didn't run or play the field. Wilmer Flores would have filled in for Cabrera at shortstop but now he'll serve as infield depth.
Mar 24 - 5:42 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) took six at-bats in an instrasquad game on Thursday.

That's a big step forward for the Mets' new shortstop, who has been held out of Grapefruit League games for the past two weeks with a strained left patella tendon. He should be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 24 - 12:46 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) will do some hitting on the field in Mets camp on Thursday.

Cabrera has been held out of Grapefruit League games for two weeks with a strained patella tendon in his left knee, but he continues to work on the side and remains optimistic for the opening of the regular season. He could get back into exhibition action next week.
