Melky Cabrera should produce, even if homers trail off


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(4/9/2014) With home runs in four straight games, Melky Cabrera is quickly quieting down his skeptics. There is still good reason to doubt Cabrera as a potential 30-homer threat, but that doesn't mean he can't provide enough power to help owners in virtually any Fantasy format.

Cabrera doesn't hit all that many flyballs; in fact, he has launched only seven through his first eight games. He has managed to clout three of those for home runs (along with one of his nine line drives), and clearly, he can't keep that pace going. Cabrera showed moderate home run power in his breakout 2011 and 2012 seasons with the Royals and Giants, respectively, and 21 of his 29 homers from that period occurred away from his pitcher-friendly home parks.

So Cabrera has shown that, in a good power-hitting environment like the Blue Jays' Rogers Centre, he has the potential for 20-to-25 home runs. More important, he is showing that his extra-base power has returned, now that he has recovered from surgery to remove a spinal tumor. Prior to his recent home run streak, owners could have had reasonable concerns that a post-PED Melky would have depleted power, but that's a harder claim to buy into now. Cabrera's home run pace is surely due to slow down, but he could return to the 40-doubles club, even though he has yet to hit one this season.

Cabrera's doubles power and low strikeout rate make him valuable in points leagues, while hitting in front of Colby Rasmus, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion provide him with run-scoring opportunities that give him Rotisserie value. Toss in 20-plus home runs, and suddenly, Cabrera looks like a must-own option again.

(4/6/2014) Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera launched his third home run in as many games on Sunday against the Yankees.
