Latest Update Everth Cabrera (hamstring) has joined the Padres in Los Angeles Thu Aug, 21, 08:38 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.
Cabrera has been on the DL since August 10th but was having an otherwise unspectacular year hitting just .232 with 18 stolen bases in 26 attempts.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Cabrera has been dealing with hamstring issues the last two months, the most recent of which putting him on the DL. Alexi Amarista has been manning the six-hole in the meantime. It's still another week before Cabrera is able to return. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Ugh. It just goes from bad to worse here as Cabrera has been a complete disappointment all year and now hits the DL at a very crucial time of the year for fantasy owners hoping to move up in the speed categories. Alexi Amarista should see plenty of time at shortstop moving forward.Analyst: Howard Bender
Cabrera has been absent from the Padres lineup for two straight games as he battles with a hamstring injury. Although his season has not gone to plan, the Padres shortstop was hitting .350 with five stolen bases over his last 40 at-bats, so if he can find a way to get healthy, there is certainly some upside to be expected form him down the stretch.
