Cabrera went 3-for-4 with his second home run of the season in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

The switch-hitter has struggled mightily against lefties this year, but in his last 21 at-bats against southpaws Cabrera has recorded 10 hits, including Sunday's home run. With 12 total hits in his last seven games, Cabrera has raised his batting average nearly 20 points to .255. The dramatic decline in power has been surprising, but he had just a 1.3 percent HR/FB rate for the season entering Sunday.

Cabrera went 5-for-5 with a double and a run scored in the White Sox's win over the Rangers on Sunday.

We would like to say it looks like Cabrera is turning things around, but Sunday's five-hit performance snapped an 0-for-10 stretch, and he continues to show virtually nil power despite the move to U.S. Cellular Field as his home park. He has been moved from the No. 2 spot in the order to 5 or 6.

Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run Wednesday against the Pirates.

After slumping all year, Melky's found something of late, with hits in six consecutive games, lifting his average to .245 -- its highest point since late May. Unfortunately, he's going to have to keep that up quite a bit longer to shed the bust label he's quickly acquired in Chicago.

Cabrera is out of the lineup Saturday, the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan reports.

This is just a rare day off for Cabrera, who is in a bit of a slump, with his average dipping from .250 to .230 over the last eight games. Emilio Bonifacio will get the start in left field and hit ninth Saturday.

Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI in the 4-3 win over Oakland on Saturday.

While it was just three singles, it's nice to see Cabrera getting on-base at the top of the struggling White Sox lineup. This is now three straight games with an RBI for Cabrera.

Cabrera went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in the 7-6 win against the A's Friday night.

Cabrera has gotten off to a slow start this season and has struggled recently, going just 2-for-20 over the past five games. He has been solid throughout his career, so look for him to get out of this slump soon.

Cabrera went 3-for-4 Saturday with a run scored.

He's shaken off his slow start to the season, and Cabrera is now hitting .316 (12-for-38) over his last 10 games with five runs scored and four RBI. He still only has two extra-base hits on the season, both doubles, but as long as he keeps collecting hits, the rest of his production should come around.

Cabrera went 4-for-5 Saturday with a double, two runs scored and two RBI.

He was hitting just .162 coming into the game, but Cabrera led the White Sox hit parade in a 12-4 romp over the Tigers. With Jose Abreu and Adam LaRoche, who both homered on Saturday, slugging behind him in the batting order, Cabrera might have a shot at topping his career high of 102 runs scored set back in 2011.

Cabrera went 1-for-4 Monday against the Royals.

While the White Sox were stymied offensively Monday, Cabrera is in a premier spot to put up counting stats this season hitting in the two hole behind Adam Eaton and ahead of Jose Abreu.

Cabrera (finger) will likely bat second for the White Sox in 2015, the team's official site reports.

Sandwiched between leadoff man Adam Eaton and No. 3 hitter Jose Abreu, Cabrera should provide a similar spread of runs scored and RBI to his 2014 numbers in the potent Toronto lineup. If he's able to sustain last season's production, Cabrera should prove to be an undervalued commodity yet again in many drafts this spring.
