Latest Update Padres reinstate Everth Cabrera from 15-day DL Tue Jul, 29, 04:06 PM
Has outstanding speed, switch-hitting ability and a slick glove for the middle infield. Makes things happen as a base-stealer and rarely gets caught.
Flaws: : Swings too freely for a player with so little home-run power in his bat. Makes his share of errors in the infield. His decision-making is questionable.
While it's nice to get Cabrera back, he's going to have to do more than just hit .218 and steal just 13 bases. He was drafted by so many this year as a top speed option and has done nothing but disappoint. Alexi Amarista will likely find himself on the bench more.Analyst: Howard Bender
E-Cab played short and batting second for the Chihuahuas Monday. He is expected to finish out the home stand with El Paso then could be in line to return to the big league club before this weekend if all goes right.Analyst: Michael Pichan
The speedy shortstop has struggled mightily this season, but will look to be more of a contributor upon his return. Even though he will be returning from a hamstring injury, he is known for his speed and should be on your radar if you are looking to gain ground in the stolen base department.Analyst: David Kerr
Cabrera looks to be close to returning after going on the 15-day DL on July 1st with a hamstring strain. If all goes well after he runs the bases, he shouldn't need a very long rehab assignment and should be back by early-August if not late-July .Analyst: Ben Diamond
