    • Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, the deciding hit in Saturday's 5-4 win over the White Sox. Cabrera's eighth-inning blast, his 16th of the season, was especially sweet because it dealt the final blow to his former team. Since coming over from the White Sox, the 13-year veteran is hitting .314 with three home runs and 13 RBI over 13 games. Overall, Cabrera is hitting .297 with 69 RBI on the year.

    • Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in an 8-5 loss against the Cardinals on Wednesday. He's gone on a rampage over the last five games, going 9-for-21 (.429) with a pair of homers, eight RBI and his only steal of the season. This year has largely been more of the same for Cabrera, who's traditionally been a relatively high-average hitter (albeit with a couple of down years) with some pop, but he's got a chance to set a new career best in homers -- at 15 now, he's just three shy of the 18 he managed back in 2011.

    • Cabrera went a combined 4-for-8 with a home run, five RBI and two runs in a doubleheader against the Mariners on Sunday. Cabrera smacked his 14th long ball of the year off Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez with two on and two out in the third inning of Game 2. It was the first homer by the "Melk Man" in a Royals uniform since 2011. More importantly, though, he's now up to 62 RBI this season -- good for 23rd in the American League -- and his 125 hits are tied for sixth most in the AL.

    • Cabrera will start in right field and bat third Monday against the Orioles. Acquired Sunday from the White Sox, Cabrera will be making his second debut with the Royals, as he spent the 2011 campaign in Kansas City. The Royals plan to have Cabrera serve in an everyday role in right field as they attempt to chase down a playoff spot, which likely means one of Jorge Bonifacio, Alex Gordon or Brandon Moss will have to hit the bench in any given game. For the series opener Monday, it will be Bonifacio who draws the short end of the stick.

    • Cabrera is expected to act as the primary right fielder when he joins the Royals on Tuesday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. Cabrera primarily played left field during his tenure with the White Sox, although many people expected him to supplant Brandon Moss as the designated hitter in KC. Instead, the Royals will move "The Melk Man" over to right field, thus bumping Jorge Bonifacio into the mix for at-bats as the DH with Moss. Alex Gordon is also expected to get some days off down the stretch, which could also mean that Cabrera would slide over into left. Nonetheless, it appears that the Royals want to get Cabrera into the lineup as often as possible while they contend for a spot in the playoffs.
