Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Will bat lefty versus some lefties
Cabrera, a switch hitter, plans to bat left-handed against some lefty pitchers this season, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.
The switch-hitting Cabrera hasn't hit righties (.628 OPS) or lefties (.640 OPS) well so far at the major-league level, but the Yankees view him as a much better hitter from the left side of the dish. The plan is for the coaching staff to meet with Cabrera before each series and decide which southpaws he will face from the left side. Cabrera is slated for a utility role in 2024.... See More ...

Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Nabs 12th straight start
Cabrera will start in right field and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Cabrera will be making his 12th consecutive start Monday, with the 24-year-old having bounced between both corner-outfield spots during that time. Most of those starts have come while Everson Pereira was nursing a hamstring injury, but Cabrera will end up replacing a resting Giancarlo Stanton in the lineup Monday while Pereira returns to the lineup for his first start since Sept. 14. Dating back to Sept. 10, Cabrera is slashing .295/.367/.432 over a stretch of 12 games, so look for the Yankees to find ways to keep his hot bat in the lineup over the final week of the season....

The 24-year-old has lifted his season average 14 points during the streak, with three of his eight knocks over that span going for extra bases. Cabrera is still slashing a paltry .221/.295/.321 overall, but he's at least making a good late-season impression.... See More ... See Less

Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Back with big club
Cabrera was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Homers in return
Cabrera homered in his only at-bat during a 6-3 victory against the Dodgers on Saturday.
Cabrera was called up prior to the contest following a brief stay with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He came up as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and put the icing on the cake of a Yankees win with a 404-foot solo blast. Cabrera had been in a 4-for-36 slide prior to being demoted Thursday, so this was a much-needed big hit. He could see some opportunities in center field with Harrison Bader (hamstring) and Greg Allen (hip) both on the IL, though Isiah Kiner-Falefa got the start there Saturday.... See More ... See Less

Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Option imminent
The Yankees will option Cabrera to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre prior to the weekend series against the Dodgers, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.
As the Yankees prepare to reinstate Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring), Josh Donaldson (hamstring) and Tommy Kahnle (biceps) from the injured list, Cabrera will reportedly be one of the players headed to Triple-A as a result. Cabrera had been an everyday starter for the Yankees before a lengthy slump at the plate demoted him to a utility role, and he's hitting just .195 on the season over 154 major-league at-bats. He will likely have to rediscover his swing in the minors before the Yankees allow him back on the major-league roster.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Losing out on starts
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.
Cabrera was playing on a near-everyday basis in the corner outfield for the first month of the season, but he appears to have transitioned into more of a utility role with Jake Bauers beginning to gain more traction in the lineup versus right-handed pitching. The 24-year-old Cabrera will be on the bench Wednesday for the third time in the past four games.... See More ... See Less
