Latest Update Melky Cabrera not interested in playing on artificial surface Fri Nov, 28, 09:59 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.
Not a lot of players are big fans of playing on the turf, so that's understandable. With few people really remembering or discussing Cabrera's positive tests and web site scam, it's very possible that he lands another big free agent contract. He slashed .301/.351/.458 with 16 home runs and 73 RBI over 139 games played last year and someone will reward that. For fantasy sake, the hope is that he lands somewhere with a favorable hitter's park. He got some nice help from playing in the Rogers Centre and will likely need similar assistance next season.Analyst: Howard Bender
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
