Cabrera is out of the starting nine versus the Rockies on Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Cabrera will remain on the bench for a fifth straight game while Scott Kingery gets another start at shortstop. At this point, it looks like the club is just trying to give more playing time to Kingery with its postseason hopes dashed.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Cabrera will stick on the bench for a fourth straight game as Scott Kingery picks up another start at shortstop in his stead. It's unclear if the veteran infielder is dealing with an injury -- he missed time last week with a calf injury -- or if the Phillies are simply looking to give the younger Kingery some opportunities over the final week of the season with the team out of playoff contention.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Monday against the Rockies, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Cabrera is hitting just .209/.320/.279 over his last 15 appearances, so he'll head to the bench for a third straight game and the fifth time in the last seven contests. Scott Kingery is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in his absence.
Cabrera will not start Saturday against the Braves. Cabrera has gone just 5-for-31 over his last 10 games. Scott Kingery will take his spot at shortstop Saturday.
Cabrera (calf) will start at shortstop and bat third against Atlanta on Thursday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

During 15 games this month, he's hit .245/.327/.469 with two home runs and seven RBI.
