Manager not surprised by Melky Cabrera's hot start
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told MLB Network Radio Thursday that he's not surprised by outfielder Melky Cabrera's hot start. Cabrera is batting .325 with four home runs through nine games.

"The swing looks like it always has," Gibbons said. "He had his off field issues, but one thing he can always do is hit."

Fantasy Analysis | 1397078162
Melky Cabrera should produce, even if homers trail off
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

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.

Report: Melky Cabrera in good shape heading into 2014
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera is in good shape as he recovers from surgery late last season to remove a tumor on his spine, according to the National Post, which is further reporting that John Gibbons expects him to return to full health and form in 2014.

Cabrera was a major disappointment in his first season with the Jays in 2013. His batting average not only dropped from his 2012 high of .346 to .279, but he managed just three home runs and 30 RBI and lost 50 games to a PED suspension.
