The performance of Oswaldo Cabrera with the New York Yankees has been so positive that the team has kept him as one of their most versatile players at the moment. However, not having a 100% fixed profile in the lineup has resulted in him shuttling between the Majors and Triple-A this year.

During this past Saturday, the Bronx squad defeated the Kansas City Royals (5-2) to secure the series. Unfortunately, Cabrera went hitless after three plate appearances.

Following the conclusion of the game, the Yankees announced on their social media that Cabrera has been sent back to Triple-A with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

It’s worth noting that the Venezuelan has been a constant presence on the major league team due to the wave of injuries that several players have suffered. With this recent move, it appears very likely that Greg Allen or Jake Bauers will return to the roster.

So far, Cabrera has maintained an offensive line of .205/.266/.308/.574 in 80 games, with four home runs, eight doubles, 22 runs batted in, 26 runs scored, six stolen bases, and 40 hits in 195 at-bats.

The New York Yankees’ recent win against the Kansas City Royals marks a turning point for the team, as they climb out of last place in the AL East. With back-to-back victories over the Royals, they are looking to complete a series sweep and gain ground in the playoff race.

Following their latest win, the Yankees made some roster moves, with infielder/outfielder Oswaldo Cabrera being optioned to the Scranton Railriders, as announced on Twitter.

Cabrera has had a tough season at the plate, hitting only .205 with a .574 OPS before being sent down to Scranton. The hope is that he can use this time in Triple-A to regain his confidence and rediscover his full potential.

This season has been challenging for the Yankees, with injuries and tough competition in the AL East-leading to their current fourth-place standing in the division. However, there is still time to turn things around, as the talent on the team is undeniable, and they are not far from a wildcard spot.

As the Yankees sit eight games out of first place in the division, their chances for the playoffs are still within reach, trailing only two games behind for a wildcard spot. With injuries healing and players like Cabrera finding their form, the Yankees have a good shot at making a strong push towards postseason success.

As they continue to fight for a playoff spot, having all their players performing at their best will be crucial in achieving their postseason aspirations.
