Melky Cabrera homes in three-hit day for White Sox
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/28/15) White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera went 3 for 4 in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Cabrera has hit in the last three games and is 5 for his last 11. He also homered, his second of the year and first since May 6.
Cabrera's homer went an estimated 450 feet, his longest shot since 2009.
Cabrera also drove in his second run in as many days and 26th of the year.
White Sox LF Melky Cabrera goes perfect 5 for 5 in win

|(6/21/15) White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera was a very difficult out for the Rangers on Sunday.
As a matter of fact, the Rangers didn't get Cabrera out at all. Cabrera went a perfect 5 for 5 with a double and four singles.
Cabrera snapped a 0-for-10 streak at the plate with the outburst, and boosted his batting average to .250 on the season.
White Sox LF Melky Cabrera slams two hits in loss

|(6/13/15) White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera went 2 for 4 in Friday's loss to the Rays.
The two hits added to Cabrera's recent surge at the plate. During his last four games, Cabrera is hitting .385 with five hits and three RBI.
White Sox LF Melky Cabrera benched against David Price
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/6/15) Scuffling White Sox outfielder Melky Cabrera, who was moved down to sixth in the lineup Friday, has been moved out altogether Saturday against tough Tigers lefty David Price.
The switch-hitter is batting a disturbing .080 (4-for-50) against southpaws this season. His overall numbers are also uncharacteristically weak. He has just one home run in 217 at-bats.
Emilio Bonifacio is set to take his place against Price.
"Just one day, give him a breather," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said of Cabrera, per MLB.com. "He doesn't necessarily want to be out for this, but I think one day's important for him just to watch and take a breather."
White Sox swap Melky Cabrera, Alexei Ramirez in batting order
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/5/15) White Sox manager Robin Ventura is making a slight change to his batting order for Friday's tilt against the Tigers.
Left fielder Melky Cabrera is moving down to the sixth spot in the order for the first time this season. It's just the sixth time all year that Cabrera wasn't slotted in the No. 2 spot in the lineup. The veteran outfielder has hit safely in nine of his last 11 games, but has just a .220 batting average over that span.
Shortstop Alexei Ramirez will move up to second in the order on Friday. Ramirez has spent most of the season batting sixth, but is sliding to the top of the lineup.
|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.
