Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a run in Friday's 5-3 victory over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder now has four multi-hit efforts over the nine games he's played in July, and has already matched his homer total for all of June. Cabrera is also just one RBI short of matching last month's figure in that category, and has hit safely in four of the last five games.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera's 11th blast of the year gave the Mets a two-run lead in the sixth inning of a game they'd hold on to win. He's now belted three bombs in his last five games to raise his slugging percentage to .426 on the season.

Cabrera (undisclosed) is back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

Cabrera was scratched from Wednesday's lineup after a family illness kept him from sleeping Tuesday night, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera's absence from the lineup is not related to his recent knee injury, so he should return to the lineup in the coming days. The Mets opted to play Jose Reyes at shortstop Wednesday, so he'll likely start Thursday's contest against Washington if Cabrera isn't able to play.

Cabrera has been scratched from Wednesday's lineup, the Star-Ledger's Maria Guardado reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will be replaced at shortstop by Jose Reyes, with James Loney coming in to play first and Wilmer Flores sliding to first base. Cabrera had just returned from a knee injury on Monday, so this is presumably related to that ailment. We will update his status when the team provides a reason for his absence.

Cabrera (knee) is back in the lineup Monday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera was held out Sunday due to a sore knee, but the ailment won't end up forcing a multi-game absence. The shortstop will make start No. 78 of the season Monday, so his removal from the starting lineup Sunday could have just as easily been to get the veteran extra rest amidst back-to-back day games. Cabrera will bat fifth in the order against Tom Koehler in his return to action.

Cabrera will be held out of Sunday's starting lineup due to knee soreness, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to manager Terry Collins, Cabrera's knee "has been barking a little bit," so the team will sit him out as a precaution. What that phrase means exactly from a medical perspective remains to be seen, but the Mets will take a conservative approach here, which likely means Matt Reynolds will get the start at shortstop Sunday afternoon.

Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a pair of homers and three RBI in Friday's 10-2 victory over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old touched up Jason Hammel twice, getting to him in both the second and fifth innings. Cabrera has hit safely in eight of the last 10 games, while homering four times over that span. Friday's production was particularly encouraging considering the shortstop slumped at the plate in June, tallying only a .228 average and .297 OBP for the month.
