Melky Cabrera has a nice day at the plate on Monday

The White Sox put up 12 runs on Monday and beat the Royals 12-1. Melky Cabrera did his part by going 1-for-3 with a run scored. He also knocked in two RBIs and drew two walks.

Fantasy Impact

This was one of the better fantasy performances by Cabrera this season. He has yet to hit for much power, but is worth a look in most formats. Cabrera is usually a slow starter and his numbers should get better as the weather warms up. His BABIP is currently under his career average, meaning Cabrera should see some positive regression soon.

Melky Cabrera reaches base three times on Monday

The White Sox could not score runs and lost 7-4 to the Yankees on Monday. Melky Cabrera hit out of the three-spot and reached base three times. He was 2-for-3 with a walk.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera is worth a roster spot in most leagues. He is hitting .294 with a .780 OPS. His BABIP is slightly elevated, but not enough to be a concern. He has yet to hit a HR and lacks the power to do so consistently. Look for him to finish with around 12 HR this year. He is better in category leagues than points leagues and lacks the upside for DFS.

Melky Cabrera snags a hit on Wednesday

The White Sox beat the Indians 2-1 on Wednesday. The White Sox saw a great pitching performance from Derek Holland and did not need to score many runs. Melky Cabrera touched base once and finished 1-for-4 with a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera and the White Sox are not hitting the ball well and are lucky to be 3-4 on the season. Cabrera is worth owning in most fantasy formats, but is no more than a bench guy.

Melky Cabrera leads off on Sunday

The White Sox fell 4-1 to the Twins on Monday. Melky Cabrera was hitting lead off and went 0-for-4. He did get on base with a walk and scored the only run for the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera is currently averaging .263 this season, but he started out slow in 2016 too. He has been getting on base with walks though and has .342 wOBA. Once the power starts showing, Cabrera will be worth a look in most formats.

Melky Cabrera hits his 83rd RBI

The White Sox could not pull the clean sweep over the Rays and lost 3-5 on Thursday. Melky Cabrera went 0-for-4, but recorded his 83rd RBI when he grounded out in the sixth inning.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera did not have a great day going hitless, but the RBI definitely helps. He is a decent option to play in deeper leagues still competing for the championship and is a cheaper option in DFS.
