Cabrera has been in a rut at the plate, entering the night with a .412 OPS over his last 56 plate appearances. The three-hit night helps bring his OPS closer towards .700 on the season overall. The shortstop is slashing .248/.308/.391 with eight home runs and 34 RBI.

Asdrubal Cabrera had a two-run homer and two walks in four plate appearances on Monday.

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.
Jun 6 - 11:43 PM

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.

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.
May 28 - 11:05 PM

Justin Sellers will once again get the call at shortstop and hit ninth for the Indians.
