White Sox's Melky Cabrera abysmal vs. lefties
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/1/15) White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera is just 4 for 46 with one walk and no extra-base hits against left-handers this season.
Cabrera, a switch-hitter, hasn't been much different against lefties than righties in his career, delivering a .755 OPS against righties and a .723 OPS against lefties, but he's been unable to find any success against southpaws in 2015, which has been a large contributor to the outfielder hitting just .241/.280/.276 with one home run and 17 RBI in 199 at-bats. The White Sox are projected to face three righty starters against the Rangers in a series that starts Thursday.
Gordon Beckham, Melky Cabrera get hits for White Sox
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) The White Sox managed just four hits in Monday's shutout loss to Toronto.
Third baseman Gordon Beckham went 1 for 4. Left fielder Melky Cabrera went 1 for 3. Avisail Garcia went 1 for 1, and Emilio Bonifacio went 1 for 3.
White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu out of the lineup on Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is out of the starting lineup for the first time this season on Wednesday, the team announced.
Abreu will be replaced by Adam LaRoche at first with Melky Cabrera taking the third slot in the batting order.
"I would prefer to continue to play, stay in the lineup, but Robin made the decision to give me the day off," Abreu said through an interpreter. "I have to be ready just in case the team needs to me for an at-bat or something."
Abreu is hitting .288 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 118 at-bats this season. The White Sox are currently the underdogs (+110) against Milwaukee.
White Sox OF Melky Cabrera hits homer, gets 4 RBI in win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) White Sox outfielder Melky Cabrera hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning of Wednesday night's 7-6 win over the Tigers.
Cabrera went yard to right field on a 2-1 pitch that scored Micah Johnson and Adam Eaton. It's Cabrera's first home run of the season. He finished the game with four RBI as he also drove in a run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning.
Cabrera is now hitting .277/.330/.330 for the season.
Ventura explains lineup moves of White Sox
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) The lineup move Thursday made by White Sox manager Robin Ventura in which Alexei Ramirez was elevated to the second spot and Melky Cabrera dropped to third was done on a bit of a whim.
"It hasn't really jelled just yet so something to mix it up," Ventura told the Chicago Tribune. "Alexei has done well in the past hitting second."
Ramirez owns a .277 lifetime batting average hitting in the second spot, which is two points higher than his overall mark.
It is hope the switch will get Cabrera going. His .296 slugging percentage is 162 points lower than what he achieved in 2014. He has no home runs and five RBI.
|2014 summary: Here we go again with Melky Cabrera. Just when he seems like a classic case of a PED-generated All-Star, regressing to more modest numbers in his first year after getting busted, he comes roaring back with All-Star-caliber numbers, producing an OPS within one point of the one he had during his breakout season with Kansas City three years earlier. He didn't compete for a batting title as he did with the Giants in 2012, but he ranked ninth among outfielders in Head-to-Head points per game.|
Playing time status: The most fascinating part about Cabrera's resurgence is that it came after having surgery to remove a tumor from his spinal cord, the procedure that ended his 2013 season. A broken finger ended his 2014 season, but that one seems pretty straightforward.
2015 outlook: When you consider all the pieces to the puzzle, the most reasonable conclusion is that Cabrera's struggles in 2013 were more a result of his spinal injury than anything PED-related -- an assumption that's critical to his value since it legitimizes everything he did in 2014. He'll remain in a hitter's park after signing with the White Sox this offseason, though his home-away splits suggest it wouldn't have mattered where he ended up. Unless you're irrationally risk-averse or have a vendetta against former PED users, you'll want to draft Cabrera as a top-24 outfielder, maybe even higher in Head-to-Head points leagues.
