Cabrera went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in a 12-2 victory over the Brewers on Saturday.
The veteran outfielder has continued to hit for a high average, and in the last 10 games, he has six extra-base hits. He's batting .316 with six home runs, 31 RBI, 30 runs and two steals in 228 at-bats this season. Cabrera should remain one of the more valuable fourth outfielders in fantasy realms during the second half.
Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a home run, double and two RBI in the Pirates' 6-5 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Cabrera's opportunities have been on the downswing since the beginning of June, but the veteran has remained a capable performer when called upon. Though he'll draw a second straight start in the outfield in Thursday's series finale, he's still the clear fourth outfielder on the Pirates and will see most of his action against left-handed pitching.
Cabrera will start in right field and bat fifth against Detroit on Tuesday.
The switch hitter, who will face southpaw Daniel Norris, is batting .353 with a 1:7 BB:K in 52 plate appearances against left-handed pitching in 2019. Cabrera will be making just his third start since June 8, as his playing time has been squeezed by the return of Corey Dickerson. The 34-year-old could become a trade candidate should the Pirates fall further behind in the playoff race.
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves.
With a 7-for-17 showing at the plate over his last five games, Cabrera continues to thrive offensively, but the Pirates still seem to view him as their fourth outfielder while rookie Bryan Reynolds keeps producing well. Cabrera will sit for the second consecutive day and only looks on track to see steady action versus left-handed pitching.
Cabrera went a combined 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored against the Reds in Monday's doubleheader.
He played the entire first game despite getting plunked by a 97-mph fastball on his right forearm and then served as a pinch hitter in the nightcap. Cabrera is slashing .333/.372/.456 in 147 at-bats. His .828 OPS is the second-highest mark of his 15 MLB seasons.
Cabrera will start in right field and bat fifth for the Pirates in the first game of their doubleheader Monday against the Reds, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Cabrera will draw the start in right field in place of Gregory Polanco, though he's seen his playing time squeezed of late with the return of Polanco and strong play of Bryan Reynolds. His presence in the lineup figures to dwindle further with the impending return of Corey Dickerson (shoulder), despite Cabrera hitting .331/.367/.458 across 151 plate appearances this season.
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
Since Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte returned from the injured list in late April, Cabrera and Bryan Reynolds have been jockeying for one spot in the outfield against right-handed pitching. Though the veteran has slashed a commendable .326/.362/.454 this season, Reynolds has been even better, as he'll carry a .910 OPS into Sunday's contest. Reynolds will stick in the lineup for the ninth time in 10 games, signaling that Cabrera is likely viewed as the Pirates' fourth outfielder at this time.
Cabrera is not starting Saturday against San Diego.
Cabrera has gone 8-for-17 at the plate over his last five games. He'll sit in favor of Bryan Reynolds on Saturday.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Thursday against the Padres.

He has started eight of 12 games in May, batting .375 in 32 at-bats since April. Cabrera's overall .858 OPS represents his highest mark since 2012, when he compiled a .906 OPS and made the All-Star team for San Francisco. While the 34-year-old doesn't start every day, he's seeing more time than rookie Bryan Reynolds in left field.
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Cabrera will sit for the second straight day as manager Clint Hurdle rolls with Bryan Reynolds in left field. It's worth noting that Reynolds has just one hit while striking out six times in his last 14 at-bats, so it's too early to declare him the victor in the job battle with Cabrera, who remains a viable hold in deeper mixed leagues in NL-only formats.
Cabrera is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.
Cabrera is still hitting .324 on the season, but he's gone 0-for-8 over his last two starts, so manager Clint Hurdle decided to give the veteran a day off. Gregory Polanco and Bryan Reynolds will cover the corner outfield spots for the Pirates.
Cabrera isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

He's batting .333 with three homers and seven RBI in 79 at-bats after his big game Sunday. Cabrera started in left field against Los Angeles and could continue to see fairly steady playing time with both Corey Dickerson (shoulder) and Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) suffering rehab setbacks over the weekend. Bryan Reynolds and Pablo Reyes also figure to be in the left-field mix with Dickerson and Chisenhall still sidelined.
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks.
The veteran is just getting a breather for the day game after the night game, paving the way for J.B. Shuck to pick up a start in the corner outfield. After a hot start at the dish to begin his time with the Pirates, Cabrera has managed only four hits in 30 at-bats over his last eight starts.
Cabrera, who is starting Tuesday in left field, has two hits in his last 23 at-bats.
Playing time might be harder to come by for the 34-year-old following the return of Gregory Polanco. Cabrera had played 14 games in right field prior to Polanco's return but tried left field for the first time Monday. He muffed one ball in the left-field corner and later slipped on the warning track retrieving another extra-base hit. Given the combination of PNC Park's spacious left field dimensions and Cabrera's limited range, look for the veteran to be lifted for defensive replacements. Starting left fielder Corey Dickerson is expected back in early May, too.
Cabrera (undisclosed) will start in left field and hit second Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.
