Latest Update Melky Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI, two runs, and a stolen base in the Blue Jays win over the Brewers on Wednesday. Wed Aug, 20, 09:28 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.
The Melk-man is having a brilliant year after disappointing in 2013. He's found his feng-shui Toronto, and has been a dark horse MVP-candidate for the Jays, slashing a healthy .314/.367/.477 with 15 home runs and 6 steals. Also impressive, he has 42 walks against just 60 strikeouts. He's one of the league's best 2-hole hitters and should cash in this offseason when he becomes a free agent yet again.

Cabrera is having himself a fine season in his second year with the Blue Jays as he can been a consistent offensive force since Opening Day. He is now slashing .313/.368/.478 with 15 home runs, 65 RBI and 74 runs scored through 498 at-bats, and now with both Adam Lind and Edwin Encarnacion back in the mix, the Blue Jays offense has a chance get back to being one of the best in baseball the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Well, if there's someone representative of the fact that cheaters ca prosper, it's Melky who is currently on-pace to match those 2011 numbers that set up the red flags for testing. He's supposedly doing it while clean, though obviously one can't be too sure in this day and age, and it looks like he should continue to be a reliable source of production down the stretch. So maybe it doesn't matter how he's doing it, just so long as it's being done.Analyst: Howard Bender
Melky is now hitting .393 in the month of August and has an RBI in three straight games. On the season he is hitting .318 with 72 runs, 14 home runs, 62 RBI and five stolen bases. He will face King Felix tomorrow who he is 5 for 17(.294) with two RBI against when the Blue Jays travel to Seattle.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
