Indians | Asdrubal Cabrera struggling with approach

Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera has always been a free swinger in his career, and he admits that the first pitch is often the best pitch to take advantage of with opposing pitchers trying to get ahead. However, Cabrera is batting only .188 with a .111 average through nine at-bats that end on the first pitch this year. However, manager Terry Francona said the team will not ask Cabrera to alter his approach at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: It's a small sample size so far this season, so don't blow it too far out of proportion. Expect his average on balls put in play on the first pitch to progress more toward his career numbers as the season progresses.
