Description: Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is a career .087 hitter (2-for-23) against Dodgers starter Dan Haren.
Insight: The switch-hitting shortstop is putting up decent numbers considering he's only batting .248. He's hit eight homers, knocked in 33 runs and scored 46 times. Not great fantasy statistics, but worthy of fill-in status when needed. Don't use him on Monday in the unfavorable matchup.

Insight: Justin Sellers (.200, 0 HR, 1 RBI) was getting the starts at shortstop, but Cabrera should return to the lineup, perhaps as early as Monday.

Insight: Cabrera has been hot lately, batting .340 over the past 12 games to raise his average to .261, but fantasy owners should avoid this matchup.
 
Hot5/13/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Batters usually either love or hate facing a knuckleball pitcher and Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera appears to love it when batting against Blue Jays right-hander R.A. Dickey.
Insight: Cabrera faced Dickey six times and has taken him deep twice among three extra base hits. The Indians shortstop appears to be coming out of his slow start, batting .476 over his last five games with a pair of homers. His fantasy owners should love this matchup.

Description: Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera had four hits, including two doubles and a home run, three RBI and two runs Thursday against the Twins.
Insight: Cabrera's average dipped to .205 after he went 5-for-37 (.135) from April 25 to May 6, but he's gone 6-for-9 his last two games. The 28-year-old's home run total declined in each of the last two seasons.
 
4/23/2014 11:42:00 AM
Description: Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is having a pretty awful season (.205, 1 HR, 5 RBI in 20 games) but he could be worth a look Wednesday against Kansas City left-hander Jason Vargas.
Insight: He's hitting .500 against him in ten career at bats. Two of those five hits went for extra bases so this matchup does have potential. Cabrera still has time to turn things around this season but the clock is ticking.

Description: Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is hitless in nine at-bats against Oakland starter Scott Kazmir. He's struck out three times.

Cabrera owners are hoping for a return to 2011 production levels (.273, 87 runs, 25 HR, 92 RBI, .792 OPS), but its more likely that what we have seen the past two seasons is what we will see this year as well (.257, 68 runs, 15 HR, 66 RBI, .732 OPS).
