Cabrera (ankle) is not in the lineup Sunday but could be available off the bench, according to Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports.
While Cabrera will not start Sunday, manager Dave Martinez does not believe his injury is serious enough to sideline him entirely. Assuming that's the case, Cabrera could return to the lineup as soon as Monday.
Cabrera (ankle) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.
Cabrera left Saturday's game with a sore ankle, and the injury will prevent him from starting at least one game. Brian Dozier will enter the lineup at second base in Cabrera's place.
Cabrera (ankle) exited Saturday's contest with right ankle soreness, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Cabrera reportedly suffered the injury in the fourth inning when he slid into home plate trying to beat a tag. However, he remained in the game until the eighth frame, when Michael Taylor ran for him. The extent of the injury is unclear at this point, though Cabrera will be reevaluated Sunday.
Cabrera is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves.
Cabrera started the last three games and went 2-for-11 with a triple and two RBI, but he'll take a seat Sunday with southpaw Max Fried on the mound for the Braves. Brian Dozier will start at the keystone and bat sixth in the series finale.
Cabrera is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Twins.
He heads to the bench against lefty Martin Perez. Cabrera is 9-for-23 (.391) with two home runs in six games this month. Brian Dozier gets the start at second base and will hit seventh.
Cabrera is not in Friday's lineup against the Braves.
He had started three straight games before sitting for a second game in a row. Both of his off days have come against southpaws, so it seems like Cabrera is occupying the strong side of a second base platoon. Howie Kendrick will start at the keystone and hit second.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Thursday against the Braves.
Cabrera will head to the bench for Thursday's series opener after starting the past three games at the keystone and going 4-for-12 with a double, a home run and four RBI. Brian Dozier is starting at second base in his place in this one.
Cabrera will start at second base and bat second Wednesday against the Mets, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The hot-hitting Cabrera appears to have unseated Brian Dozier as the Nationals' primary option at the keystone, as he'll man the position for the third straight game and make his seventh start in the last nine games. Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a walk, double and two runs in Tuesday's 11-10 comeback win, boosting his slash line to .328/.405/.578 since signing with the Nationals in early August. Expect manager Dave Martinez to lean heavily on Cabrera until his bat cools off.
Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Mets.
His ninth-inning shot off Tyler Bashlor ruined the Mets' combined shutout bid while continuing Cabrera's tear at the plate since coming over from the Rangers. In 18 games with the Nats this season, the veteran infielder is now slashing .317/.391/.567 with three homers and 22 RBI.
Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Orioles.
Cabrera delivered RBI hits in the first and fifth frames, continuing his strong production of late. Since Aug. 7 -- his first start with the Nationals -- Cabrera has gone 18-for-52 with 18 RBI, nine runs scored and two home runs. For the season, he's now slashing .251/.333/.419 across 429 plate appearances.
Cabrera went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 11-1 win over the Pirates.
It's his 14th homer of the season and second as a Nat, and both have come within the last three games. Cabrera's now 12-for-37 (.324) since coming over from the Rangers, but his .244/.329/.417 slash line on the year offers a better reflection of his fantasy potential.
Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and five RBI in Monday's 13-0 rout of the Pirates.
After going deep 12 times in 93 games for the Rangers to begin the season, this was Cabrera's first homer in nine contests as a Nat. The veteran infielder is faring much better overall at the plate than he did in Texas, though, slashing .379/.472/.655 with 10 RBI and a 6:3 BB:K for Washington.
Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 17-7 win over the Reds.
It was a remarkably balanced attack from the Nats, as every starting position player got on base multiple times and scored exactly twice. Cabrera seems to have found a new lease on life by returning to Washington, slashing .381/.409/.571 through his first six games with the Nats.
Cabrera will start at second base and bat sixth Wednesday against the Reds.
Cabrera will man the keystone for the fourth time in five games, with the spike in playing time he's seen mainly a result of Brian Dozier battling an illness. Dozier returned to the lineup for Tuesday's 3-1 win and delivered a solo home run and drew a walk. Though Cabrera will be back in the lineup again for the series finale, the ailment is behind Dozier at this point and he's likely just getting some maintenance for the day game after the night game.
Cabrera is getting reps at first base, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
The Nats don't have a platoon partner for Matt Adams at first base with Ryan Zimmerman (foot) and Howie Kendrick (hamstring) both on the shelf -- current backup Gerardo Parra also hits left-handed -- so if Cabrera can adapt quickly, there is a path to some playing time for the veteran switch hitter. That said, he's never played first base before in over 1,600 career MLB games, and his .709 OPS for Texas this season doesn't suggest he'll have a lot of fantasy value in Washington even if Cabrera does see semi-consistent at-bats.
Cabrera signed a major-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
It didn't take long for Cabrera to find a new home after being released by the Rangers earlier Monday. The veteran infielder compiled a lackluster .235/.318/.393 slash line with 12 home runs and four stolen bases in 93 games with the Rangers before being designated for assignment, so he'll likely settle for a reserve role with the Nationals.
The Rangers released Cabrera on Saturday.
After the Rangers designated Cabrera for assignment Wednesday, no team was willing to put in a waiver claim for the 33-year-old and take on the money remaining on his one-year, $3.5 million deal. Since he has more than five years of big-league service time, Cabrera was able to refuse a minor-league assignment, prompting the Rangers to cut ties and allow him to explore his options elsewhere. After delivering a pedestrian .235/.318/.393 slash line (81 wRC+) as an everyday player for the Rangers this season, Cabrera will likely have to settle for a reserve role in the infield at his next landing spot.
Cabrera was designated for assignment by the Rangers after Wednesday's win over the Mariners, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Cabrera was absent from Wednesday's starting nine and will likely finish his 2019 season in Texas with a .711 OPS and career-high 23.1 percent strikeout rate in 93 games. The veteran infielder started 90 contests at third base for the Rangers this season, and Isiah Kiner-Falefa will be recalled to fill his starting role. Cabrera seems unlikely to accept an assignment to Triple-A and could simply be released.
Cabrera is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Cabrera is hitless over his last two games, following a stretch in which he posted a .966 OPS over 10 contests. Logan Forsythe starts at the hot corner in his absence.
Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs an RBI and a walk in the Rangers' 11-3 win over the Athletics on Thursday.
Cabrera was hitting just .220 in July coming into this contest, but he posted a big day in this blowout victory for Texas, lacing a trio of base hits and reaching base in four of his five plate appearances. He's now slashing .234/.318/.399 with 12 homers and 48 RBI through 352 plate appearances.
