Latest Update Cabrera smacks 12th homer and drives in three on Sunday Sun Jul, 20, 09:00 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 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
The Melkman has put up All-Star type numbers at the plate this season and on Friday he showed he also has a decent glove when he made a diving catch of a line drive off the bat of A's Yoenis Cespedes, where he appeared to tweak his wrist, to end the third inning. The trainers checked him out in between innings and gave him the green light to return to the field in the bottom half of the fourth.Analyst: Michael Pichan
