Latest Update Melky Cabrera has rejected the Blue Jays qualifying offer. Mon Nov, 10, 05:35 PM
A consistent switch-hitter from both sides of the plate, he lines the ball into the gaps with regularity. Is an outstanding defensive outfielder with a strong, accurate arm.
Flaws: : Lacks consistency from year to year, so he needs to continue to make adjustments to pitchers. Could stand to become a little more assertive at the plate. Is prone to injury.
Melky is one of 12 players in the league to reject the club qualifying offer this offseason. The talented outfielder bounced back nicely from the PED suspension and seems to have put all of it in the past. A big payday should be expected for Melky who put together another impressive season in the outfield and at the dish where he hit .301 with 16 HRs and 73 RBI.Analyst: Dom Murtha
Cabrera missed most of the last month of the season with a fractured pinky finger, that he had surgery on to repair. He provides a good bat with some pop when healthy, and the Jays can use him as part of their outfield rotation when 2015 rolls around.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Cabrera was having a very good season for the Blue Jays before breaking his hand after getting hit by a pitch which required season ending surgery. On the year Melky hit .301 with 81 runs, 16 home runs, 73 RBI and six stolen bases over 139 games. Melky will likely going into next season with high expectations and solid fantasy value depending on where he ends up.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Cabrera continues to seek out that big payday and will chase dollars no matter what city it leads him towards. Hopefully those general managers who run teams in pitcher-friendly ballparks won't be blinded by Rogers Center-induced numbers.Analyst: Howard Bender
