    • Cabrera will start in right field and bat fifth against Detroit on Tuesday. The switch hitter, who will face southpaw Daniel Norris, is batting .353 with a 1:7 BB:K in 52 plate appearances against left-handed pitching in 2019. Cabrera will be making just his third start since June 8, as his playing time has been squeezed by the return of Corey Dickerson. The 34-year-old could become a trade candidate should the Pirates fall further behind in the playoff race.

    • Pirates' Melky Cabrera: On bench again
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cabrera is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves. With a 7-for-17 showing at the plate over his last five games, Cabrera continues to thrive offensively, but the Pirates still seem to view him as their fourth outfielder while rookie Bryan Reynolds keeps producing well. Cabrera will sit for the second consecutive day and only looks on track to see steady action versus left-handed pitching.

    • Cabrera went a combined 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored against the Reds in Monday's doubleheader. He played the entire first game despite getting plunked by a 97-mph fastball on his right forearm and then served as a pinch hitter in the nightcap. Cabrera is slashing .333/.372/.456 in 147 at-bats. His .828 OPS is the second-highest mark of his 15 MLB seasons.

    • Cabrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers. Since Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte returned from the injured list in late April, Cabrera and Bryan Reynolds have been jockeying for one spot in the outfield against right-handed pitching. Though the veteran has slashed a commendable .326/.362/.454 this season, Reynolds has been even better, as he'll carry a .910 OPS into Sunday's contest. Reynolds will stick in the lineup for the ninth time in 10 games, signaling that Cabrera is likely viewed as the Pirates' fourth outfielder at this time.
