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. Apr 29 - 10:34 PM

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.

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.

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.
Mar 24 - 10:43 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) could DH in minor league games soon.

Cabrera was shut down earlier this month with a strained patella tendon, but he did some hitting over the weekend and fielded some ground balls on Monday. The big test will be how the knee responds to game action, but there's increased optimism about his chances of being ready for Opening Day.
Mar 21 - 5:08 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) played catch and tracked pitches in the batting cage on Friday.

He's hoping to be cleared to hit in the batting cage soon. "I feel good," Cabrera said Friday. "We’ll see how I feel tomorrow and go from there." Making his way back from a strained patella tendon, Cabrera remains optimistic about being ready in time for Opening Day.
Mar 20 - 9:54 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins is now expecting Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) to be ready for Opening Day.

Cabrera was shut down with a strained patella tendon earlier this month and has so far been limited to riding an exercise bike. However, Collins seems optimistic he'll be recovered in time for Opening Day April 3 against Kansas City. Wilmer Flores would fill in at shortstop if Cabrera needs more time.
Mar 17 - 9:43 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera will be shut down for the next two weeks with a left patella tendon strain.

It obviously could have been worse, but this still means Cabrera is set to begin the season on the disabled list. Cabrera will be given a platelet-rich plasma injection in New York on Friday. With Cabrera looking at a DL stint, that means the Mets will surely keep Ruben Tejada now rather than trade or cut him. Tejada and Wilmer Flores will handle shortstop until Cabrera is ready.
Mar 11 - 11:29 AM

Mets assistant general manager JP Riccardi said Friday of Asdrubal Cabrera's left knee injury that "I don't think it's anything serious."

Alarm bells were sounded with Cabrera flying back to New York on Friday in order to be further examined, but it sounds like there's still optimism that it's not a long-term ailment. We'll obviously know more after the results of the exam are in, which should happen sometime over the weekend.
Mar 11 - 11:06 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) will fly back to New York on Friday in order to be examined by the Mets' medical staff.

The club has yet to reveal the results of the MRI on Cabrera's left knee, but the infielder heading to New York for further testing probably isn't a good sign. Cabrera injured the knee while tagging up from first base during Thursday's Grapefruit League game. If Cabrera needs a disabled list stint to begin the season, the Mets would be back to a Ruben Tejada/Wilmer Flores combination at shortstop.
Mar 11 - 10:16 AM

Asdrubal Cabrera is undergoing X-rays on his left knee.

Cabrera departed Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals after tweaking his left leg while tagging up from first base in the bottom of the first inning. "I felt something in my knee," the shortstop told reporters before heading off to the X-ray machine. "It's sore right now ... [but] I'm walking fine. I don't think it's anything serious." He'll probably get a couple days off.
