Cabrera (knee) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN.com.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera was expected to start Monday despite his early exit from Sunday's contest, but he will get at least one day to rest and recover. Given that Cabrera had a shot to play Monday, he should have a chance to get back on the field for the Mets' next game Tuesday.

Updating a previous report, Cabrera was forced to exit Sunday's game with a sore left knee injury rather than an arm injury, according to ESPN.com's Adam Rubin.

EDGE Analysis

It's not encouraging news for Cabrera, who was previously forced to the DL earlier this month with a strained patellar tendon in the same knee. The shortstop had been on fire since coming back from the DL, going 15-for-33 (.455 average), so an absence of any length due to this latest knee setback would obviously be costly for the playoff-hopeful Mets. Wilmer Flores ended up replacing Cabrera on Sunday and slotted in at third base, while Jose Reyes moved over from the hot corner to cover Cabrera's normal spot at shortstop. Flores would be the primary beneficiary if Cabrera's injury would require another DL stint.

Cabrera was pulled out of Sunday's game after injuring his arm in a play at first base, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera was running to first base, but an errant throw forced Tommy Joseph to come off the bag and make contact with Cabrera. More information regarding the severity of Cabrera's injury should be known in the near future after his arm is further examined. Upon Cabrera's departure, Wilmer Flores was put into the game.

Cabrera continues to rake at the plate following his return from the disabled list, blasting his 16th home run while driving in a pair of run Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera is 13-for-28 with three home runs and nine runs driven in since he returned to the lineup eight game ago. His 16 home runs tie for the second-best mark of his career while his .764 OPS is his highest since 2011, which was his best year in the majors.

Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a run scored and driven in along with a stolen base in the Mets' 7-4 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera also made two spectacular plays in the field to rob St. Louis of hits and runs scored. Maybe it was the golden locks he now has, but whatever the reason, Cabrera was locked in at the plate and in the field Tuesday. He and Jose Reyes combined to go 6-for-9 with four runs scored, two runs driven in and a pair of stolen bases.

The Mets plan on activating both Cabrera and Yoenis Cespedis on Friday. It is currently unclear who will be optioned to make room for both players. Cabrera last played July 31 against the Rockies. He's slashing just .255/.308/.410 on the season.

Cabrera (knee) will not be activated Thursday but he will rejoin the team for its series in San Francisco, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The expectation as of Wednesday was that Cabrera would be activated for the start of the Mets series in the Bay Area, but the club will wait at least one extra day to make the roster move. Given that Cabrera is traveling Thursday and will meet up with the team, it's a possibility that the veteran infielder could be back in the lineup as soon as Friday.

Cabrera (knee) will be activated off the disabled list Thursday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera should reinforce the infield, pushing Jose Reyes back to third base while giving the Mets a more formidable lineup on a daily basis. The corresponding move remains unclear, but the official activation should be announced prior to Thursday's series opener against the Giants.

Cabrera (knee) may go on a rehab assignment as soon as Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets just activated Jose Reyes after two rehab games for short-season Brooklyn, so Cabrera could be activated by next weekend if his rehab begins Tuesday. With Reyes currently slotted in as the team's shortstop, they could desperately use Cabrera back, especially for the defensive upgrade.
