Royals' Melky Cabrera: Drives in only run in three-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Thursday's 1-0 win at Toronto.

Cabrera drove in the game's lone run with a single in the third inning, but was also caught stealing later in that frame. The veteran outfielder continues to bat third in the order for Kansas City's underwhelming offense and needs just five RBI to match his career high of 87 set during his first stint with the Royals back in 2011.

Royals' Melky Cabrera: Hits two-run shot in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during Sunday's win over Minnesota.

It was the 17th long fly of the season for the veteran, and he's now just a single homer short of tying his career high of 18 from the 2011 campaign. Cabrera is finishing off another serviceable fantasy campaign with 74 RBI, 66 runs and a .298/.336/.448 slash line to go along with his 17 round trippers.

Royals' Melky Cabrera: Collects four hits in Friday's victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run scored in the Royals' 7-6 win over the Twins on Friday.

"The Melk Man" tallied just one hit during Kansas City's three-game series with the Rays earlier in the week, so this offensive outburst was a welcome sight. Since joining the Royals in late July, Cabrera is hitting .306 with three home runs and 16 RBI, bringing his season slash line up to a solid .297/.336/.444.

Royals' Melky Cabrera: Deals crushing blow to former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, the deciding hit in Saturday's 5-4 win over the White Sox.

Cabrera's eighth-inning blast, his 16th of the season, was especially sweet because it dealt the final blow to his former team. Since coming over from the White Sox to the Royals, the 13-year veteran is 16-for-51 (.314) with three home runs and 13 RBI over 13 games. Overall, Cabrera is hitting .297 with 69 RBI on the year.

Royals' Melky Cabrera: Drives home three in losing cause
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in an 8-5 loss against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

He's gone on a rampage over the last five games, going 9-for-21 (.429) with a pair of homers, eight RBI and his only steal of the season. This year has largely been more of the same for Cabrera, who's traditionally been a relatively high-average hitter (albeit with a couple of down years) with some pop, but he's got a chance to set a new career best in homers -- at 15 now, he's just three shy of the 18 he managed back in 2011.
