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.
Sep 21 - 11:33 PM

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.
Sep 20 - 11:24 PM

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.
Sep 17 - 3:58 PM

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.
Sep 17 - 12:09 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.
Sep 16 - 10:03 PM

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.
Sep 2 - 11:21 PM

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.
Sep 1 - 10:50 PM

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

Cabrera's knee still isn't 100 percent, so the Mets are being proactive with some rest here. He should be back in there Friday. Jose Reyes will slide over to shortstop Thursday, with Kelly Johnson getting a start at third base.
Sep 1 - 4:13 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Cabrera now has four home runs in his last five games to give him 17 homers on the year. That's his highest single-season total since his breakout 2011 season. It's been a quietly strong season all around for the 30-year-old in his first season with the Mets, hitting .273/.324/.453 with those 17 homers, 44 RBI and 48 runs scored.
Aug 30 - 10:27 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) has returned to the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.

Cabrera was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Monday after leaving Sunday's game with left knee soreness, but it didn't keep him down for long. He'll bat second against Tom Koehler.
Aug 30 - 3:12 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) struck out as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Marlins.

Cabrera aggravated a left knee injury in a collision at first base on Sunday and was held out of the starting lineup on Monday. It's unclear when he'll be ready to return to the lineup.
Aug 30 - 9:02 AM
