Twins' Jake Cave: On bench for series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cave is not in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers.

Cave has started all but two games in September, slashing .279/.319/.465 with four homers, 13 RBI and 34 strikeouts over that stretch (91 plate appearances). He'll sit for Thursday's series finale, with Johnny Field, Max Kepler and Robbie Grossman covering the outfield from left to right in his stead.

Twins' Jake Cave: Slugs 12th homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cave went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Sunday's 5-1 victory over the Twins.

Byron Buxton's health woes and poor performance at the plate have left a hole in center field for the Twins for much of the season, with Cave emerging as the team's main option to fill the void during the second half. The 25-year-old seems better suited for a reserve role in the long run, but he's at least performed adequately in September with a .266 average, four home runs, 14 runs, 12 RBI and a stolen base in 21 games. Cave's 33.7 percent strikeout rate and .359 BABIP suggests regression could be coming with his batting average, but his decent pop and stable playing time should make him a usable lineup option in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues over the final week of the season.

Cave is not in the lineup versus Houston on Wednesday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Twins' Jake Cave: Goes yard Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cave went 2-of-4 with a double, a solo home run and two runs scored against the Rangers on Saturday.

Cave took Yovani Gallardo deep in the second inning for his ninth home run of the season. The rookie has flashed some intriguing power through 186 career at-bats, recording 22 extra-base hits, which have contributedto a .489 slugging percentage. While he may sit against southpaws, Cave has started regularly with righties on the mound and could be a nice source of power down the stretch.
