Coming Into The Season

Cabrera had a bit of an injury-plagued season in 2010, playing in only 97 games. He was a bit irrelevant for fantasy purposes in the time he did play, as he hit just 3 home runs, stole just 6 bases, and hit .276. There was hope that he would return to the form that let him hit .308 in 2009 with 17 stolen bases. ESPN ranked Cabrera as their #16 shortstop coming into the season, which really made him a starter in AL-only leagues and very deep leagues only.

His Performance So Far

At a position which has been overall very disappointing this season, Cabrera has been the #2 shortstop to this point in Yahoo leagues. He is currently hitting .291/.341/.496 with 14 home runs, 49 runs batted in, 12 stolen bases, and 53 runs scored.

Can He Continue This Performance?

Cabrera looks like he can keep up this performance to me. His advanced metrics are all in line with his career numbers, and while the power numbers may tail off slightly, I believe he could still reach 25 home runs and 25 stolen bases this season. He is still just 25 years old, and we could be seeing the first of many excellent seasons from one of the best shortstops in the game.
