Cabrera (illness) is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Cabrera went 3-for-5 with three RBI in a 6-5 extra-inning victory over the Twins on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old had a two-run double in the fifth and then a game-tying RBI single in the ninth. It's a small sample size, but Cabrera is 7-for-14 (.500) with three doubles and four RBI in the last three games. Cabrera is also hitting .348 in July.

Cabrera walked and homered in a 1-for-3 game with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Cabrera's first home run of July. Despite the lack of pop, he has been making excellent contact this month, as his has just three strikeouts in 43 at-bats to go with a sharp .326 batting average. Cabrera has never posted a strikeout percentage worse than 13.3 percent in his career and that makes him one of the league's best bets to hit near .300 on a yearly basis -- his batting line now sits at .298/.346/.457.

Cabrera (wrist) is back in the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He'll start in left field and bat fifth in the order.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera had missed five consecutive games while tending to the wrist injury, but the White Sox apparently feel comfortable with where he's at on the health front after he was able to make it through batting practice. The veteran was on a bit of a heater prior to his absence, going 11-for-26 with two homers and six RBI over his most recent six games, so fantasy owners will have to hope the wrist issue didn't disrupt his rhythm too much.

Cabrera (wrist) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

As anticipated, Cabrera will be left out of the lineup for a fifth straight game, but the White Sox are holding out hope he'll be able to return to the lineup for Monday's series opener with the Yankees. Until Cabrera is available, Avisail Garcia should see everyday action in left field.

Cabrera (wrist) is unlikely to return until Monday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera's wrist injury is keeping him on the shelf for the fourth consecutive game Saturday, and it appears he'll sit out for the remainder of Chicago's series against Houston. Avisail Garcia is starting in left Saturday and will likely continue to do so in Cabrera's absence.

Cabrera (wrist) will miss 3-4 days after being diagnosed with a sprain, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera left Tuesday's game with wrist soreness and it appears it will be bad enough to keep him out a few more games, although manager Robin Ventura stated that he does not believe a trip to the DL will be required. The 31-year-old is hitting .294/.344/.462 with eight home runs, 17 doubles, three triples and 39 RBI on the season.

Cabrera (wrist) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

He left Tuesday's game with left wrist soreness and will need at least another day of rest before returning to action. Cabrera has been battling the injury since landing on it wrong while trying to make a diving catch on June 18. He feels it when he swings and misses, and for now he is just day-to-day. Avisail Garcia will start in left field Wednesday.
