Cabrera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Cabrera receives the day off in what could be the final game of the season, but he'll be good to go should Monday's doubleheader against the Cardinals be deemed necessary. Christin Stewart will serve as the designated hitter while Jorge Bonifacio starts in left field Sunday.
Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Thursday's 8-7 loss to the Royals. Cabrera has been raking lately with four home runs in his last four games. The veteran is now up to 10 long balls for the season, and it's the 15th time in his 16-year career that he's reached double figures in home runs, with the lone exception being his injury-shortened 2018 campaign. Cabrera will look to tack on a few more homers to his tally over the weekend in Kansas City.
Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a pair of three-run home runs in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Twins. The 37-year-old turned back the clock in this one, supplying all of Detroit's offense on two majestic bombs to left field. This was Cabrera's second game this season with two home runs, and he now has nine total long balls for the year. Four of those home runs have come in the last eight games, so the veteran seems to be finishing his season with a flourish.
Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-4 loss to Cleveland. Cabrera went deep in the seventh inning with a runner on for his seventh home run of the season, and he upped his RBI total to 25. The 37-year-old has seen his production taper off in his 16th MLB season -- his .692 OPS would be a new career low -- but he's still capable of popping for a good game here and there.
Cabrera (illness) is back in the lineup for Sunday's game against Cleveland. The Tigers scratched Cabrera from Saturday's lineup with a non-COVID-related illness, but he appeared off the bench in that game and is feeling well enough to return to the starting nine against Carlos Carrasco and company. Cabrera is under contract for several more years, but he's an afterthought in fantasy at this point as he's not even hitting for the same kind of empty batting average he provided the prior two seasons (.232/.324/.356).
