Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a walk and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The reluctant second baseman for the Mets has come off the DL firing on all cylinders, collecting seven hits in three games with four runs scored. If the team does follow through with trading Cabrera, the 31-year-old is doing everything he can to increase his value to a contending team looking for infield depth.

Cabrera went 3-for-6 with two runs scored in Friday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

He didn't let his shift to second base, or his resulting trade request, distract him in his return from the DL. Cabrera is still only hitting .214 (9-for-42) in June despite the big day, however, and the 31-year-old likely isn't going to fetch much on the open market given his status as a free agent in the offseason.

Cabrera has requested a trade from the Mets after he was moved to second base, the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

One of Cabrera's conditions for signing with the Mets in the first place was that he would only play shortstop, He is a free agent after the season and understands that a huge amount of his value rests on his ability to play the position. For now, Cabrera is in the lineup as the Mets' starting second baseman, but his time in New York could be short.

Cabrera (thumb) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Cabrera will rejoin the Mets for Friday's series opener against the Giants after the minimum stay on the disabled list. Gavin Cecchini was sent to Triple-A in a corresponding roster move, which could mean Cabrera will see a decent amount of starts at second base in Neil Walker's (hamstring) absence.

Cabrera (thumb) may fill in at second base when he returns from the disabled list, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Neil Walker (hamstring) is looking at an extended absence, which has left a hole at second base for the Mets. Cabrera has experience at second base, including 48 starts at that spot while with the Nationals in 2014. If the Mets do opt to use Cabrera there, Gavin Cecchini would be a candidate to be sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Cabrera (thumb) is expected to return from the disabled list Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera would be returning from the disabled list on his first eligible day if so. The thumb sprain he suffered was reportedly minor, so expect him back in the lineup as the Mets begin a weekend series with the Giants.

Cabrera was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a left thumb sprain.

EDGE Analysis

Even though Cabrera knocked a pair of homers in Monday's win over the Cubs, it appears he is still being bothered enough by the lingering thumb injury to warrant some time off. Seeing as he was able to play through the issue, it doesn't appear to be anything overly serious at this point, but more should be known about his condition as the Mets provide more information. He would be eligible to return June 23 against the Giants if he is ready. T.J. Rivera was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move, while Jose Reyes will likely see the majority of starts in his place at shortstop.

Cabrera went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Monday's win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

He's hitting only .167 (6-for-36) so far in June but three of his six hits have left the yard, giving the veteran shortstop six homers and 20 RBI on the season. His .244/.321/.392 slash line isn't going to discourage the Mets from calling up Amed Rosario if they feel their top prospect is ready, however.

Cabrera ended an 0-for-12 skid by going 3-for-5 with a homer and a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

That skid followed a brief hot streak, so Cabrera's running a bit hot and cold lately. It's been a trying season for the veteran shortstop, who's generally been unable to recapture last year's career-best power output and is sitting on an unhelpful .255 batting average, but with a .283 BABIP (career .306), he should have some positive regression headed his way.

Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's extra-inning win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

He seems to be fully recovered from his thumb injury, and Cabrera now has six hits, four runs and three RBI in his last three games. The veteran shortstop now has a .265/.338/.390 slash line which is in keeping with his career numbers, but he may need to pick up the pace to keep his job with Wilmer Flores hitting well on the Mets bench and top prospect Amed Rosario tearing up Triple-A.
