Melky Cabrera: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera cleared waivers and elected free agency Monday.

Cabrera hit just .207/.242/.293 across 17 games with the Indians before being designated for assignment last week. He's only a year removed from a solid 2017 campaign that saw him slash .285/.324/.423 with 85 RBI in 156 games, so he should draw some interest around the league.

Indians' Melky Cabrera: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was designated for assignment by the Indians on Thursday.

Since being called up from Triple-A Columbus on May 20, Cabrera was only able to hit for a .207 average with a .535 OPS over 17 games with Cleveland. The veteran outfielder will now be subject to the waiver wire and could wind up with a contender looking for a little extra depth, especially since he knocked in 85 RBI and hit .285 through 156 contests last season. In a corresponding move, the Indians reinstated Brandon Guyer (neck) from the 10-day disabled list.

Indians' Melky Cabrera: Records fifth double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI during Sunday's 9-2 victory over the Tigers.

Cabrera drove in two runs on a pair of sacrifice flies and capped off his day by delivering an RBI-double in the eighth to score Lonnie Chisenhall. Though the sample size is small, Cabrera has struggled at the dish through 14 games this season, slashing .213/.226/.319 with 11 RBI, although he showed signs of life during Cleveland's weekend series against Detroit, as he went 3-for-8.

Indians' Melky Cabrera: Benched again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

With Cabrera on the bench for the second straight day following Bradley Zimmer's (chest) reinstatement from the 10-day disabled list, it seems evident that the 33-year-old switch hitter is the odd man out of the Tribe's outfield mix. The Indians are set to get Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) and Brandon Guyer (neck) back from the DL during the upcoming week, so Cabrera's path to at-bats will only become more difficult if he even remains on the active roster.

Indians' Melky Cabrera: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera is not listed in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Cabrera had made 12 consecutive starts for the Indians, but he'll get a breather Saturday in favor of Bradley Zimmer in center field and Greg Allen in right field. With Lonnie Chisenhall's (calf) return not too far off either, it wouldn't be surprising to see Cabrera's workload decrease moving forward.
