Cabrera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.
Cabrera is 5-for-20 with three doubles, four walks, four RBI and two runs in six games since returning from the injured list, and he'll receive the day off Sunday. Drew Ellis will cover the hot corner for Arizona in the series finale.
Cabrera started at third base and went 2-for-3 with three walks and two RBI in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Dodgers.
Cabrera was a prime candidate to be traded, but the 36-year-old infielder remained with Arizona past Friday's trade deadline. Manager Torey Lovullo managed Cabrera's starting assignments earlier in the season, never letting him start more than two consecutive games, but Cabrera has started four straight and appeared in all five games since coming off the injured list. After the Diamondbacks traded Eduardo Escobar to the Brewers, Cabrera could be a regular at third base. The Escobar trade coupled with Josh Rojas' finger injury presents opportunities for the veteran.
Cabrera went 2-for-2 with two RBI and two doubles Saturday against the Cubs.
Cabrera was activated from the injured list Saturday, but he was not in starting lineup. He entered the game as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and remained in the contest as the third baseman. That was plenty of time for him to bolster the Diamondbacks' lead, as he delivered a two-run double in his first plate appearance. Despite being out of the lineup Saturday, Cabrera could be in line for plenty of plate appearances while both Ketel Marte (hamstring) and Josh Rojas (finger) remain on the injured list. Through 225 plate appearances this season, Cabrera is hitting .247/.338/.402 with five home runs, 26 runs scored and 30 RBI.
Cabrera (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Cabrera will return to the active roster after he spent two weeks on the injured list with a right hamstring strain. He was at the rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate recently and went 1-for-6 with a walk and four strikeouts. The 35-year-old isn't starting Saturday against the Cubs but could be available off the bench. Josh Rojas (finger) was placed on the 10-day IL in a corresponding move.
Cabrera (hamstring) played third base and logged four at-bats with the Diamondbacks' entry in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said the veteran felt "very good" following the session, and Cabrera will get at-bats during a "B" game against minor-league pitchers as a next step. At this point, the organization is hoping to get Cabrera healthy enough so that he can be traded.
The Diamondbacks assigned Cabrera (hamstring) to their rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.
Cabrera is ready for game action about a week and a half after landing on the injured list with a strained right hamstring, so he shouldn't require much ramp-up time. Before being deactivated, Cabrera was hitting .240 with five home runs, 28 RBI and 25 runs across 223 plate appearances with the Diamondbacks.
Cabrera was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right hamstring strain.
It's not clear when the hamstring issue arose for Cabrera, but the infielder last played Friday against the Dodgers. The move to the injured list will keep the 35-year-old on the shelf until July 20 at a minimum, and it remains to be seen if he'll need additional time to recover. The Diamondbacks could provide additional update later Saturday or Sunday.
Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Cardinals.
Cabrera got the start at third base, his fourth in the last five games, and has gone 5-for-10 with a pair of doubles and two RBI during that stretch. The versatile veteran may not be an everyday player given his age, but Cabrera is a useful piece for manager Torey Lovullo, who must navigate injuries to outfielders Ketel Marte (hamstring) and Kole Calhoun (hamstring). Infielder Josh Rojas has been deployed in the outfield to help cover those losses, which leads to opportunities for Cabrera. His biggest obstacle to playing time is the state of the franchise, which owns the worst record in MLB. That could lead to younger players, like Josh VanMeter or Andrew Young, getting more infield starts ahead of the veteran.
Cabrera will start at third base and bat fifth Wednesday against the Cardinals.
Cabrera will pick up his fourth start in five games at third base, and he could end up being the main beneficiary of Ketel Marte's (hamstring) recent move to the injured list. Marte's absence could open up room for Josh Rojas to pick up more starts in the outfield, thereby allowing Eduardo Escobar to get more starts at second base while Cabrera mans the hot corner. At the very least, the switch-hitting Cabrera should be a fixture in the lineup versus southpaws, given the bevy of lefty bats on the Arizona roster.
Cabrera went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 13-7 loss to San Francisco.
The homer was Cabrera's fifth of the season and just his third hit in 24 at-bats since coming off the injured list June 4. The 35-year-old's playing time continues to be managed, as he has not started three consecutive days all season.
Cabrera started at first base and went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Angels.
This was Cabrera's first start in the field since he returned from the injured list June 4. He served as a pinch hitter for his first four appearances then as the designated hitter Thursday. The veteran infielder is hitless in 11 at-bats with a sacrifice fly since his return.
Cabrera flew out as a pinch hitter in Sunday's 2-0 loss to Milwaukee.
Cabrera was activated from the injured list Friday and has entered the last three games as a pinch hitter, going 0-for-2 with an RBI sacrifice fly during that span. The Diamondbacks are off Monday, so there's a chance that the veteran infielder could return to the starting lineup Tuesday or Wednesday in Oakland.
Cabrera entered as a pinch hitter Saturday for the second straight game, striking out for starter Merrill Kelly in a 7-5 loss to Milwaukee.
Cabrera, who was activated from the injured list Friday, has appeared as a pinch hitter in each of the two games since. Per Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Cabrera is running at about 80 percent, but the infielder was anxious to get back. He had been playing four to five games per week prior to the injury, but Cabrera could be restricted in the short term.
Cabrera entered as a pinch hitter and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Brewers.
Cabrera was activated from the injured list Friday, beating the worst-case prognosis by a week. The most-recent report indicated the infielder was running at 70 to 80 percent, but manager Torey Lovullo told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that Cabrera is "ready for this." The obvious question is how much playing time the 35-year-old will get on a team that owns the worst record in baseball. He was playing steadily before the injury, although never more than two consecutive days, but that was before Arizona lost 20 of 23 contests.
Cabrera (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
Cabrera was expected to face a four-week absence when he landed on the injured list in mid-May, but he beat that timeline for his return. He hit quite well before suffering a hamstring injury, posting a .289/.393/.474 slash line. Cabrera isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Brewers, but he should feature regularly moving forward. Seth Frankoff (forearm) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.
Cabrera (hamstring) has been running at 70-80 percent recently, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Cabrera has been taking live at-bats over the past week, and he's also been able to increase his running intensity after only being able to jog slowly out of the batter's box at the end of May. Manager Torey Lovullo called the 35-year-old's progress a "miracle" since his injury was initially believed to be quite serious. However, Cabrera still doesn't have a clear timetable to return.
Cabrera (hamstring) has been taking at-bats since last week while jogging slowly out of the batter's box at Arizona's extended spring training site, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Cabrera, who had considered surgery for the right hamstring strain, should be able to test the injury at a near full-run pace this week. Manager Torey Lovullo is enthused by the pace of Cabrera's recovery. "He continues to push very hard to get as live of at-bats as he possibly can," Lovullo said. "He wants to return as quickly as he possibly can." The goal for the last-place Diamondbacks should be to get the 35-year-old utility infielder back, establish his health, then flip him for a prospect before the trade deadline.
Cabrera (hamstring) will not have surgery, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
The Diamondbacks will evaluate Cabrera weekly to get a sense of where he's at in the recovery process. In opting for the conservative route, Cabrera is choosing a lengthier rehab. His timetable for a return is weeks, if not months.
Cabrera (hamstring) said he was feeling better Saturday and is hopeful surgery will not be required, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.
Cabrera also acknowledged that doctors told him he could potentially be out at least four weeks due to the injury. The 35-year-old infielder has appeared at third base (27 games) and first base (nine) for the Diamondbacks.
Cabrera landed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring Friday.
Cabrera left Thursday's game against the Marlins with the injury. An MRI revealed that it was serious enough to sideline him for at least 10 games, though it's not yet clear when he's expected to return. Nick Heath was called up in a corresponding move.
