|Will Everth Cabrera be the same when he returns?|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(6/19/13) Coming into this season, Fantasy owners knew that if the Padres gave Everth Cabrera a regular role, he could be a big-time steals producer. With 31 stolen bases less than halfway into the season, Cabrera has delivered as expected, but his .305 batting average has been a pleasant surprise.
Now Cabrera is on the disabled list with a hamstring strain, and understandably, owners are stashing him. We now have to live with the uncertainty over how long Cabrera will be out and how healthy he will be when he returns. What we can assess with more certainty is how well Cabrera is likely to perform should he be fully healed when he returns. He worked on his right-handed swing during the offseason, and this season Cabrera has hit .414 versus lefties, as opposed to .195 last season. Over his torrid last 28 games, Cabrera's overall batting average has surged as he has cut back dramatically on his strikeouts, though a .433 BABIP has inflated it somewhat.
It will remain to be seen whether Cabrera will be at 100 percent when he comes back and if he can sustain his recent improvements. Given how he spent his offseason and his minor-league track record of good contact skills, Cabrera is a strong bet to be a top 10 shortstop from the point of his return on forward.
|Padres place Everth Cabrera on disabled list|

(6/19/13) The Padres have placed Everth Cabrera on the disabled list, the club announced Wednesday. Cabrera strained his hamstring in a stolen base attempt Sunday. It's unclear how long the speedy shortstop will be shut down, but a hamstring injury of any severity is concerning over the short and long term for any player so reliant on his speed.
|Everth Cabrera expects to hit DL|

(6/19/13) MLB.com reports Tuesday that the Padres are expected to place shortstop Everth Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, due to a mild strain of his left hamstring.
Cabrera was already expected to miss the team's three-game series against the Giants ending Wednesday, and it looks like this injury will cost him a few weeks of action. The move is expected to come Wednesday, if it does.
|Everth Cabrera still hampered|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/18/13) Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera was out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Giants, as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury. Cabrera has been out since Sunday, and is likely to miss the entirety of the team's three-game series.
|Everth Cabrera could miss series against Giants|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/18/13) Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera could miss the team's entire three-game series against the Giants, MLB.com reports. He will be re-evaluated after a few days of rest to determine whether a trip to the disabled list is warranted.
"We're going to keep an eye on him for a few days," manager Bud Black said Monday. "We didn't want to be too quick to pull the trigger on the disabled list just yet."
Cabrera suffered the injury during a stolen base attempt Sunday and received treatment for the hamstring Monday.
"It's better to miss two or three games here and come back as quick as I can," Cabrera told MLB.com. "I feel all right. I feel I can play but don't want to play at 50 percent. They said we will give it a couple of days and see how I feel."
Recent acquisition Pedro Ciriaco drew the start at shortstop in Monday's series opener against the Giants.
|Can you guess who led the NL in stolen bases in 2012? It wasn't Jose Reyes, whose nine-figure free agent contract couldn't get him past the 40 mark. It wasn't Michael Bourn, who actually had a down year as far as that goes. It wasn't even Emilio Bonifacio, though it probably would have been if he hadn't lost so much time to injury. Believe it or not, it was Everth Cabrera, who didn't even arrive in the majors until May 17, meaning if he had been around for the other 23.5 percent of the season, he likely would have had somewhere in the neighborhood of 54 stolen bases. Have your attention yet? Here's the problem: He didn't do anything else especially well, hitting only .246, and with top prospect Jedd Gyorko expected to audition at second base this spring, the Padres have too many middle infielders to go around. One of Cabrera, Gyorko and Logan Forsythe figures to be the odd man out, and given the chances Cabrera has gotten already, a league-leading number of stolen bases might not be enough to save him. The good news is he doesn't necessarily need full-time at-bats to contribute in the steals category. As long as you understand he might end up being a one-trick pony, feel free to target Cabrera in the late rounds of Rotisserie drafts. (Updated 12/4/12)|
