Pirates' Melky Cabrera: Career day in Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a double, two home runs and three RBI against the Dodgers on Sunday.

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.

Pirates' Melky Cabrera: Resting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Melky Cabrera: Struggles setting in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 dirt 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 -- even if he plays left field at PNC Park. Starting left fielder Corey Dickerson is expected back in early May, too.
