Cabrera went 1-for-1 with a home run, two RBI and one run scored in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks. Cabrera came up clutch with a pinch-hit home run in the seventh that gave the Mets a 3-1 lead. He's putting together a solid season through his first 41 games, slashing .321/.368/.547 to go with 26 RBI and 21 extra-base hits. Although some regression at the plate is likely on the way, Cabrera should continue to be a reliable fantasy play until he cools off.
Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a triple, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's 8-7 loss to the Rockies. He's been the one consistent force in the Mets lineup through the first six weeks of the season, and Cabrera now boasts a .330/.383/.591 slash line with six homers, 20 RBI and 22 runs in 29 games. His current slugging percentage is more than 100 points higher than his previous best, and his .360 BABIP is more than 50 points ahead of his career average, so some regression seems inevitable, but the 32-year-old should remain a fixture in fantasy lineups until he cools down.
Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs to help the Mets to a 5-1 victory over the Padres on Friday. After going 0-for-6 in his return to action coming off a sore hamstring Thursday, Cabrera got back on track with an explosive effort that brought his average up to .333 and his OPS to .970 through 93 at-bats. Consider him fully healthy and good to go moving forward.
Cabrera (hamstring) will play second base and bat third against the Cardinals on Thursday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Through 21 games, Cabrera is hitting .349/.391/.590 with four home runs and 12 RBI.
Cabrera is sitting out of Wednesday's game due to a sore right hamstring, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. It initially seemed like a routine night off for the veteran infielder, but manager Mickey Callaway clarified that an injury is actually in play. No MRI has been scheduled as of yet.
