Daniel Cabrera -- Going-Back-In Party?

I kid, because I love.  After two excellent starts to begin the year, Cabrera looked a little shaky yesterday against Kansas City, giving up 3 ERs and 7 hits in just 5 innings.  He did, however, continue his progress in the K/BB department, issuing only one free pass against 5 strikeouts.

I watched part of the game, and Cabrera didn't look too bad.  It was cold and drizzly, and it's possible that affected him, but mostly I think the Royals came in with a plan to swing at the first straight thing they saw.

I know others have been interested to see how he would do in less-than-ideal situations, and a 5 IP, 3 ER performance, though not great, certainly isn't the kind of blow-up we've seen in the past.

Any Cabrera-watchers see yesterday's game and have any additional thoughts?

(And yes, he was just dropped in my fantasy league, but that's not the reason for the diary.)
