Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the Phillies' loss to the Braves on Thursday.

Cabrera recorded his 43rd multi-hit performance of the year in his first start since suffering a Grade 1 calf strain earlier this week. The Phillies offense managed just six hits combined in the loss. The 32-year-old infielder is hitting .264/.316/.461 with 68 runs scored, 23 homers and 75 RBI in 586 plate appearances.

Asdrubal Cabrera (calf) is back in the Phillies' starting lineup Thursday versus the Braves.

Cabrera only wound up missing two starts with a Grade 1 calf strain. He will play shortstop and bat third Thursday night against right-hander Kevin Gausman.
Sep 20 - 3:37 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (calf) drew a walk as a pinch-hitter Wednesday versus the Mets.

And then Dylan Cozens promptly entered the game as a pinch-runner. Cabrera suffered a Grade 1 calf strain on Monday and might be limited to a bench role for what remains of the Phillies' regular season schedule.
Sep 20 - 8:14 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (calf) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Mets.

Not a big surprise. Cabrera suffered a Grade 1 calf strain in Monday's game and could very well be done for the year. There should be more clarity on his status soon, but fantasy owners should get a backup plan in place. J.P. Crawford will start at third base Tuesday while Scott Kingery is at shortstop.
Sep 18 - 2:37 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera suffered a Grade 1 calf strain in Monday's loss to the Mets.

Cabrera will be evaluated further on Tuesday. A Grade 1 strain is the least severe, but any sort of calf strain this late in the year certainly has the potential to be a season-ender. Fantasy owners don't need to wait around on Cabrera.
Sep 17 - 10:43 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera homered, doubled and knocked in three runs Tuesday against the Marlins.

The debate over whether Cabrera should be starting for the Phillies can be put to rest now that Maikel Franco is sidelined; Cabrera might not have been helping the team as a starting shortstop, but he is a fine choice at third for however long Franco is down.
Sep 4 - 10:55 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera clubbed a solo homer in Monday’s loss to the Marlins.

His second-inning blast against Jose Urena was the only offense of the afternoon for Philadelphia. The Phillies totaled just four hits and didn't draw a walk. Cabrera is batting .226 with four homers and 11 RBI in 33 games since being acquired from the Mets
Sep 3 - 3:42 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera blasted a walk-off homer in the 10th inning on Friday, propelling the Phillies to a 2-1 victory over the Cubs.

The Phillies weren't able to get much going on offense in this one, but scratched out a run in the sixth inning that proved to be enough to force extra innings. It was there that Cabrera smacked a 1-2 pitch from Steve Cishek over the wall in center field, sending the Phillies' faithful into a frenzy. He finished the evening 1-for-4 and is hitting .264/.313/.460 with 21 homers and 68 RBI on the season. It was just his third home run in 30 games with the Phillies.
Sep 1 - 12:00 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Phillies beat reporters before the game were noting that Asdrubal was 17-for-90 (.189) since joining the Phils in late July. His ears must have been burning, as he promptly went out and picked up hits in each of his first three at-bats. Cabrera has been a much better offensive player than the last few weeks suggest, and perhaps Saturday's game will be the spark that gets him going in red and white.
Aug 25 - 7:32 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 0-for-4 on Thursday, leaving him with a .209 average in 67 at-bats this month.

Since he's mostly playing shortstop and he lacks range there, Cabrera needs to put up strong offensive numbers in order to help the Phillies. He'll lose playing time if he continues to slump.
Aug 23 - 4:35 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a two-run double and a walk in the Phillies win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Cabrera plated a pair of key insurance runs with a fly ball off the base of the wall right-center field off Diamondbacks lefty reliever Jake Diekman in the eighth inning. The 32-year-old veteran shortstop is hitting .243 (9-for-37) with two home runs and six RBI in 10 games with the Phillies since being acquired on July 28.
Aug 8 - 1:09 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to lead the Phillies past the Marlins on Sunday.

Cabrera broke a 3-3 tie with his blast off Drew Steckenrider. It was his 20th homer of the year. The Phillies are definitely giving up some defense by playing him at shortstop, but they're content with the arrangement for now.
Aug 5 - 5:30 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-4 and belted a two-run dinger during Saturday's win over the Marlins.

He took starter Jose Urena deep to right field with Carlos Santana aboard in the third inning. The veteran middle infielder is enjoying a fine season and his fantasy owners are reaping the benefits. He has a .271 batting average with 19 home runs, 51 runs scored and 60 RBI in 105 games. He is in a much better run-producing environment since being traded from the Mets to the Phillies.
Aug 4 - 11:56 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera will serve as the designated hitter on Monday against the Red Sox.

Cabrera has made starts at shortstop and second base since coming over from the Mets, but the Phillies have the luxury of the DH spot in the series against Boston. Scott Kingery will start at shortstop while Cesar Hernandez will play second base.
