Asdrubal Cabrera had a big night at the plate in a losing effort against the Rangers on Friday, going 3-for-5 with a double, homer and pair of runs scored.

Cabrera's solo shot off opposing starter Yu Darvish in the fourth inning tied the game at 4-4, though that wound up being the extent of the Tribe's offense on the night. He has started to pick up the pace offensively in recent weeks, hitting .313 (31-for-99) with five homers and 14 RBI in his last 25 games.

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a walkoff homer in the bottom of the 12th as the Indians beat the Red Sox 7-4 on Wednesday.

The Red Sox were using a five-man infield with runners at the corners and one out in the 12th, and all Cabrera needed was a medium-depth flyball. Instead, he lined a lousy splitter from Edward Mujica over the wall in right. It was his second hit of the night and his fifth homer of the season. He had been in a 6-for-41 slump since his last multihit game on May 20.

Asdrubal Cabrera smacked a two-run home run in Friday's win over the Rockies.

May 30 - 10:41 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 0-for-4 on Wednesday and is in a 1-for-17 slump.

Cabrera had a great two-week run in the middle of May, bringing his OPS from .589 on May 6 to .758 on May 20, but he's back under .700 now. He's hardly an ideal choice to hit second, like he did tonight.

Asdrubal Cabrera remains out of the Indians starting lineup on Saturday.

Cabrera exited Thursday's game due to soreness in his left knee and has now been on the pine for the next two contests. Though an MRI came back negative, if he doesn't show improvement soon he could be looking at a trip to the disabled list. Justin Sellers will once again get the call at shortstop and hit ninth for the Indians.
May 24 - 9:39 AM

An MRI on Asdrubal Cabrera's left knee has come back negative.

Cabrera was one of six Indians with two or more hits against Blue Jays pitching, scoring three runs in the process. The stolen base is his fourth of the season and he is slashing .259/.335/.401. Wednesday marks only the second time all season Cabrera has his slugging percentage over .400.
May 14 - 11:00 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera paced the Indians offense in Friday’s 6-3 victory over the Rays, going 3-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored.

He’s been on an absolute tear at the plate over his last three games, going 9-for-15 (.600) with five extra base hits, including two homers, and four RBI. He’s raised his average all the way from .205 to .254 during the hot stretch and is finally providing something of value to fantasy owners.
May 9 - 11:35 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera went 4-for-5 and only narrowly missed a cycle Thursday in the Indians' 9-4 win over the Twins.

Needing the triple, Cabrera drove a ball down the right-field line with a man on first in the eighth. Chris Herrmann misplayed it a bit before getting it in, and the relay came home, though it was too late to prevent the run from scoring. Cabrera clearly took third on the throw, but he was hoping he'd be credited with the triple anyway. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. Still, a homer, two doubles and a single makes for a pretty good day, especially for a guy who entered with a .215 average. The homer was just Cabrera's second in 126 at-bats this season.
