Cabrera will remain on the bench Tuesday against the Twins. Cabrera will sit in favor of Brandon Guyer for the second straight game following a string of seven consecutive starts. After a three-hit game in the first of those seven, Cabrera went just 3-for-19 over his next six.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Monday against the Twins. Since being recalled from Triple-A Columbus last month, Cabrera has taken over as the Indians' primary right fielder with Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) on the shelf. However, he'll get a breather Monday after starting seven straight games. Brandon Guyer will man right field and hit ninth in his place.
Cabrera will start in right field and bat sixth Wednesday against the Pirates. Cabrera has taken over as the Indians' primary option in right field since being summoned from Triple-A Columbus after the All-Star break. He'll collect his fifth straight start Wednesday after going 6-for-15 with a pair of doubles over the prior four games. With Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) facing an extended absence, Cabrera should have a clear path to a full-time role so long as his play warrants it.
Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Saturday against the Rangers. Cabrera made his first major-league appearance since June 13 but didn't show any signs of rust by recording his first three-hit game of the season. He's still buried on the depth chart, but may see time in the outfield while Lonnie Chisenhall remains sidelined. If his performance in his first stint with the Indians is any indication, Cabrera can be ignored in all but the deepest of leagues.
Cabrera will be called up by the Indians on Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Cabrera had been with the Indians earlier in the year, hitting just .207/.242/.293 in 17 games. Since then, he's been designated for assignment, became a free agent and ended up back with the team on a minor-league deal. He'll need to do a lot more this time around if he's going to have any fantasy value.
