Description: Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is having a pretty awful season (.205, 1 HR, 5 RBI in 20 games) but he could be worth a look Wednesday against Kansas City left-hander Jason Vargas.
Insight: He's hitting .500 against him in ten career at bats. Two of those five hits went for extra bases so this matchup does have potential. Cabrera still has time to turn things around this season but the clock is ticking.

Description: Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is hitless in nine at-bats against Oakland starter Scott Kazmir. He's struck out three times.
Insight: This is the first of a day-night doubleheader after Tuesday night's rainout. Cabrera owners are hoping for a return to 2011 production levels (.273, 87 runs, 25 HR, 92 RBI, .792 OPS), but its more likely that what we have seen the past two seasons is what we will see this year as well (.257, 68 runs, 15 HR, 66 RBI, .732 OPS).
