Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Diamondbacks. Cabrera delivered a two-run double in the eighth inning to provide some much needed insurance, putting the visitors ahead 4-0 in the eventual 5-2 win. The 32-year-old is hitting just .243 since being traded to the Phillies, but he's hit safely in four straight and driven in six over that span, and is now slashing .333/.429/.722 to open August.
Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 5-3 victory over the Marlins. Cabrera delivered a clutch home run in the eighth inning, breaking the tie and handing his team a two-run lead. Since being dealt to the Phillies, he's gone just 6-for-31 with three-extra base hits and four RBI (eight games), although he's now homered in back-to-back contests.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Friday against the Marlins. Cabrera had started all five games since arriving in Philadelphia but will take a seat Friday, with Scott Kingery starting at shortstop. The Phillies are likely to continue to rotate their hitters, leaving Cabrera in a slightly less than everyday role.
Cabrera went 2-for-6 with a run and a double in Monday's loss in Boston. Cabrera has started all three games since being shipped to Philadelphia on Friday, appearing once at shortstop, once at second base, and once as a designated hitter. The Phillies seem committed to getting him in the lineup on a regular basis at various spots around the diamond, which could help Cabrera keep eligibility at multiple positions next season.
Cabrera was traded from the Mets to the Phillies on Friday in exchange for pitching prospect Franklyn Kilome, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The Phillies plan to deploy Cabrera at third, second and shortstop, as his ability to switch hit will allow the team to tailor their lineup based upon pitching matchups, per Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com. Cabrera is hitting .277/.329/.488 with 18 home runs, 48 runs and 58 RBI this season. The move probably won't have a major impact on Cabrera's fantasy value over the final two months, although he will enjoy a home park upgrade and will join a better lineup. He is a free agent after this season.
