Latest Update The Melk Man Delivers 2 HR in blowout Tue Jul, 29, 06:12 AM
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.
The Melk Man has been on an absolute tear since returning from the All-Star break, slashing .432/.479/.795 with three home runs, 13 RBI and 11 runs scored, including six multi-hit games over his last 11 contests. Adding two home runs to his season total on Monday, Cabrera is now sitting with 14 long balls, which is a far cry from the three that he hit out of the yard a season ago. Although his current pace is not going to be sustainable the rest of the way, even will a little regression he is still a must-start option in all fantasy formats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Cabrera has been on fire since returning from the All-Star break, hitting .481 with six extra-base hits (1 HR) with seven RBI and five runs scored, including four three-hit games in his last seven. Although Edwin Encarnacion is missing from the Blue Jays lineup there is still plenty of pop, making Cabrera a must-start in all fantasy formats until he proves us otherwise. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Melky continues to rake this season for Blue Jays now hitting .307 with 59 runs, 12 home runs, 48 RBI and five stolen bases. Melky will be facing Red Sox starter John Lackey tomorrow who he is 10 for 31 in his career against. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Cabrera went into the break hot, hitting safely in eight of his previous nine games, and he's come out the gate here in the second half the same way, going 4-for-8 in his first two games back. However, while the batting average and on-base percentage remain strong, Melky is lacking in the counting stats. He hasn't hit a home run since June 19, a span of 23 games, and he has just eight RBI and 11 runs scored during that power drought. If he's going to prove to be a useful fantasy asset over the second half, he's going to have to start hitting for more power....legally....if he can.Analyst: Howard Bender
