Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Cabrera had two singles, extending his hitting streak to nine games Wednesday. Impact: However, Cabrera failed to hit a home run for the first time in five games so he could be cooling off and if so, you may eventually want to cut bait with him.(STATS, 3:45pm)

News: Cabrera homered for the fourth straight game Tuesday against the Astros. Impact: He has now hit more home runs in eight games this season than he did in 88 last season, when he was sidelined with leg injuries and also had a benign tumor removed from his spine late in the season. Few prognosticators were declaring Cabrera a bounce-back candidate this season, but it seems he may have been one of the steals of drafts, even though we know he'll cool down at some point.(RotoWire, )

News: Cabrera was 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Yankees on Sunday afternoon. Impact: He led off the bottom of the first inning with his third home run in as many days. With Jose Reyes on the disabled list, Cabrera seems to be enjoying his spot at the top of the batting order, but while he may be able to continue producing something close to his .323 batting average, the power display is likely to fade.(RotoWire, )

News: Cabrera was 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Yankees on Friday night. Impact: He homered on the third pitch thrown by Masahiro Tanaka who was making his Major League debut, but that was about the extent of the excitement for the Toronto fans. Now hitting in the lead-off spot while Jose Reyes is out of action, he could see a few more chances to score runs, but he doesn't provide the pop you normally like to see from a corner outfielder.(RotoWire, )

News: Cabrera was slotted into the Jays' leadoff spot Tuesday, going 2-for-5 with a run against the Rays. Impact: With Jose Reyes (hamstring) on the 15-day DL, Cabrera could continue to bat leadoff for the Jays in the short term, which should allow him an extra at-bat here or there and the chance to score a couple more runs.(RotoWire, )
