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.

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.
Jul 30 - 2:45 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera is starting at shortstop and batting fifth in his Phillies' debut against the Reds on Saturday.

Cabrera should see plenty of RBI opportunities hitting in front of Odubel Herrera and Carlos Santana in the Phillies lineup. In addition to his improved surrounding cast, the move to a more hitter-friendly home ballpark should also do wonders for his fantasy value.
Jul 28 - 3:02 PM

Phillies acquired INF Asdrubal Cabrera from the Mets for RHP Franklyn Kilome.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported around an hour ago that the deal had been agreed to, and it didn't take long for the Mets to make the official announcement. Cabrera, an impending free agent at season's end, is expected to see time at both shortstop and third base for the Phillies. The 32-year-old is having a terrific season, slashing .277/.329/.488 with 18 homers and 58 RBI. His fantasy outlook should only improve moving to a more hitter-friendly home ballpark with a much better and deeper surrounding cast.
Jul 27 - 6:54 PM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Phillies have acquired Asdrubal Cabrera from the Mets for pitching prospect Franklyn Kilomé.

Cabrera should see playing time at both shortstop and third base for the Phillies and offers protection at second base, as well. The 32-year-old is in the midst of a fine season, having put up a .277/.329/.488 batting line with 18 home runs and 58 RBI. He's an impending free agent.
Jul 27 - 6:02 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera put on a show for potential teams Thursday, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in the Mets' 12-6 win over the Pirates.

Cabrera, a popular name as the trade deadline approaches, was in the middle of the action for the Mets, knocking an RBI double in the second inning before swatting a two-run homer in the fourth. He tacked on an RBI groundout in the seventh and scored the last Mets run of the evening in the ninth. The Diamondbacks, Brewers, Indians, Mariners and Phillies are all reportedly circling the 32-year-old, who's hitting .277/.329/.488 with 18 homers and 58 RBI, and there's a good chance he's producing for a new club come Tuesday afternoon.
