Asdrubal Cabrera drives in three with triple


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Indians infielder Asdrubal Cabrera put together his first multi-RBI in weeks Thursday, in a 9-3 win over the Yankees.

Cabrera reached base three times, and none of those times was more important than when he drove in three runs with a seventh-inning triple to tied the game. He finished the game 2 for 4 with one run scored and a walk in addition to his three RBI.

Cabrera had just one RBI in the first eight games of the month of July, and now has 37 RBI in 86 games overall. He is hitting .251/.312/.398 in 339 at-bats.  


Asdrubal Cabrera slugs seventh home run Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera went 1 for 2 with two walks and a two-run home run in his team's 4-3 win over the Angels Monday.

Cabrera opened the scoring Monday with his first-inning home run, and he managed to reach base two more times via free passes. He had drawn three walks in 13 games this month before his pair of walks Monday. Cabrera has hit .255/.324/.412 with seven home runs and 26 RBI in 255 at-bats.


Asdrubal Cabrera maintains strong pace for Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) After a terrible start to his contract year, Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera has gained consistency and production.

Cabrera bottomed out at .205 on May 6, but has 36 hits in 118 at-bats since for a .305 mark. He has scored 26 runs in 29 games during that stretch and has sweetened his stat line to .255/.324/.400.

His range and dependability on defense, however, has been weak and it remains to be seen if he will be dealt at the trading deadline to make room for promising minor leaguer Francisco Lindor. Much could depend on whether Cleveland remains in contention for a playoff spot or division title.


Asdrubal Cabrera walks Indians off with three-run bomb


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cabrera is now hitting .246/.322/.384 in 57 games, with five home runs in 211 at-abts.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Roll continuing for Asdrubal Cabrera


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) The three-hit game achieved by Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera on Wednesday night was merely an extension of a hot streak that began on May 7.

Cabrera, whose average bottomed out at .205 the day before, has 14 hits in his last 30 at-bats for a .480 stretch. He has three doubles, two home runs and 10 runs scored in the last seven games.

The tear has motivated Terry Francona to elevate Cabrera into the fifth spot in the lineup. His .259 batting average is at its highest point since the second game of the season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) The Indians have bounced shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera from seventh in the batting order in the opener to leadoff in the second game of the regular season Wednesday in Oakland.

Asdrubal Cabrera leading off vs. A's Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Manager confident Asdrubal Cabrera will bounce back


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"I think Cabby will be coming in with something to prove," Francona said. "He got nicked up a number of times (in 2013). It happens to somebody every year. He was playing catch-up and his swing got long, and he tried to go two or three for one, and you can't do that. You see it happen. Every team has it happen to somebody. I do think he'll show up with something to prove."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

No plans to move Asdrubal Cabrera from cleanup spot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera has hit just .187/.215/.280 in 75 at-bats since the All-Star break, but manager Terry Francona isn't considering moving him from the No. 4 spot in the batting order, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

"Cabby's got a pretty good track record,'' Francona told the Plain Dealer Thursday. "He's going to get hot. And if you move Cabby too soon -- say, down to sixth or seventh -- you won't get the most out of it. So I want to keep him where he is. To be bluntly honest, if he doesn't get hot, we might not be good enough. I'm not trying to put all that on him, but the reality is, we need Cabby.''

Cabrera has hit fourth exclusively since appearing there for the first time on July 22.
