Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Tuesday's loss at Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera drove in Tim Anderson and Jose Abreu with a long ball off Phillies starter Jake Thompson in the third inning. The clean-up hitter matched last season's total of 12 homers with this effort, and is just one RBI short of the 77 he managed in the last campaign. He has gone yard twice in the last five games after doing so only once between Jul. 20 and Sept. 15.

Cabrera (illness) was a late scratch Wednesday against the Tigers, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was expected to return Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game due to dehydration, and indeed, he was in the original lineup the White Sox submitted, but then he ended up getting scratched shortly before first pitch. J.B. Shuck figures to replace him, but a new lineup has not yet been released. Consider Cabrera day-to-day going forward.

Cabrera left Tuesday's game in the seventh inning due to dehydration, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's good news that Cabrera didn't leave with something more serious. Manager Robin Ventura seemed to think Cabrera would be OK for Wednesday's game, but J.B. Shuck would be an option to start in the outfield if Cabrera needs another day to get right.

Cabrera was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Tigers in the seventh inning, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

It seems Cabrera may have been injured on his groundout to second base in the top of the seventh, although it wasn't obvious when he got hurt or what part of his body was ailing. J.B. Shuck entered the game in center, pushing Adam Eaton to right field and Avisail Garcia to left.

A case of the flu kept Cabrera out of the lineup the past two nights, but he'll draw back in for Saturday's matchup against Seattle lefty Ariel Miranda. Cabrera, who has crushed left-handed pitching this season to the tune of a .345 average and .895 OPS, will bat third in the lineup.

Cabrera was left out of the lineup Thursday due to a case of the flu, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Initially, it appeared that the veteran was merely getting the day off for Thursday's matchup with Seattle. However, manager Robin Ventura told reporters during some media availability prior to the game that Cabrera was dealing with the flu. Cabrera will miss Thursday's game and if he's out again Friday, Avisail Garcia could take over again in left field.

Cabrera is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera will get a rare day off, as he hasn't sat since an injury forced him out of the lineup July 3. In his absence, the White Sox will go with an outfield alignment of Avisail Garcia in left, J.B. Shuck in center, and Adam Eaton in right against lefty James Paxton.
