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.
White Sox's Melky Cabrera delivers walkoff single in win Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera went 1 for 4 with a walk and a walkoff RBI single in his team's 4-3 win over the Indians Monday.
The White Sox found themselves behind 3-0 with one out in the ninth inning, but two doubles sandwiched around one walk brought the first two runs of the inning home, and four straight singles followed to give the White Sox the dramatic win.
Cabrera entered play Saturday with just six singles in 37 at-bats, but he's 7 for 13 with a double and three RBI in his last three games. He has hit .260//275/.280 in 50 at-bats to start the season.
Melky Cabrera not worried about White Sox's slow start at plate
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) White Sox outfielder Melky Cabrera isn't worried about the team's slow start at the plate. He's still impressed with the Chicago offense.
"This is a very good one, one of the best," he said, per MLB.com. "You have speed and you have power. You have everything and that's good for us. It makes you feel good, comfortable, when you are playing in a lineup like this."
"Our best way to handle the expectation is to keep the focus simple," he added. "To try hard every day and just think of what we can do and not what else the other teams can do. Just think of us and be confident in our talent."
|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.
