Everth Cabrera (hamstring) will run the bases on Sunday.

If that goes well, Cabrera will most likely start a rehab assignment on Monday with Triple-A El Paso. He has been out since July 1 with a left hamstring strain.
Jul 19 - 6:53 PM

Padres placed SS Everth Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 1, with a left hamstring strain.

It's not clear at this point how much time Cabrera will miss, but obviously he won't return before the All-Star break. Alexi Amarista figures to receive the bulk of the playing time at shortstop while Cabrera is on the shelf.

Everth Cabrera (hamstring) will be placed on the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game.

Cabrera tweaked his left hamstring during Monday's game and then didn't play Tuesday. It's not clear at this point how much time he'll miss, but obviously he won't return before the All-Star break. Brooks Conrad will replace Cabrera on the Padres' roster.
Jul 2 - 12:55 PM

Everth Cabrera was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a strained left hamstring.

Cabrera admitted that he's not sure whether the ailment will send him to the disabled list, so it sounds like it might be more than a mild strain. The Padres are expected to wait until Friday to make a decision on the shortstop.
Jul 1 - 7:04 PM

Everth Cabrera went 0-for-3 as the Padres' No. 7 hitter in Saturday's loss.

Cabrera has mostly been hitting second of late, but he belongs at the bottom of the order right now, if he belongs in the lineup at all. It's one thing that he's batting just .218, but his 81/16 K/BB ratio is completely ridiculous for the kind of hitter he is. Jace Peterson may get a long look at shortstop later this season if this keeps up.
Jun 29 - 1:37 AM

Everth Cabrera went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 6-0 triumph over the Giants.

Would you believe this was Cabrera's first multi-hit game of the month? He entered June with a mediocre .628 OPS, and has seen his numbers fall off the table with a putrid .129/.205/.143 slash line in June coming into this evening. The Nicaraguan shortstop broke out by batting .283 with 37 steals last year, but speed is the only thing that's been on his side in 2014 (on pace for 27 steals).
Jun 24 - 1:12 AM

Everth Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Cabrera went deep in the ninth inning off of LaTroy Hawkins, his second homer of the season, to knot the game up at six apiece. He also swiped his ninth bag. Cabrera isn't known for his power; he'll need to hit for a high average, steal bases, and play good defense to provide value to the Padres. He's slashing .249/.277/.343 thus far.
May 18 - 7:57 PM

Everth Cabrera smacked a solo homer in Thursday's win over the Reds.

The home run was his first since last May 25. It was just his fourth RBI on the year and his first April 27. Cabrera is off to a disappointing start this year following his PED suspension, but he has at least stolen three bases this month. He had just four in all of April.
May 15 - 9:14 PM

Everth Cabrera was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup because he's with his wife after she gave birth.

It's not clear at this point if the Padres will place Cabrera on the paternity leave list. With an off day coming Monday, they might not need to. Alexi Amarista is at shortstop Sunday in Cabrera's place.
May 11 - 1:38 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said Saturday that a right knee injury earlier this month has been "a little bit of a factor" in why Everth Cabrera has just two stolen bases this season.

Cabrera tweaked the knee on April 14 and has attempted just one steal since then (and it was unsuccessful). Black also noted that pitchers have been paying more attention to Cabrera this season. "Last year sort of put him on the map, as far as recognition," Black said. "He's off to a nice start this year. I think it takes time for most players to get national recognition. I think he's started to get that."
Apr 27 - 10:49 AM

Everth Cabrera went 3-for-5 with three singles Friday against the Nationals.

Cabrera is hitting .313 (30-for-96) through 23 games this season, which is encouraging to see after 2013 season came to an early end after a 50-game PED suspension, but he has been pretty quiet on the basepaths thus far. He's just 2-for-5 in stolen base attempts.
Apr 26 - 12:02 AM

Everth Cabrera (knee) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in the Padres' win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

Cabrera was a late scratch from Tuesday's game with a sore right knee. It was never a major concern. The speedy shortstop is batting .333 with two stolen bases.
Apr 17 - 8:44 AM

Everth Cabrera was a late scratch from the Padres' lineup Tuesday due to a sore right knee.

It's not clear how Cabrera hurt the knee or how long he might be sidelined. The Padres should provide an update on his status after the game. Alexi Amarista took Cabrera's spot at shortstop.
Apr 15 - 8:56 PM

Everth Cabrera went 2-for-4 in the Padres' loss to the Marlins on Saturday night in Miami.

Cabrera singled up the middle in the third inning and singled to left-center in the fifth. His other two at-bats were strikeouts and he was gunned down on his one stolen-base attempt. The 27-year-old shortstop is 6-for-19 (.316) on the young season.
