Originally written August 23, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Toronto Blue Jays' outfielder Melky Cabrera, who has struggled to a .279 average and .682 OPS in 88 games this season, may miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury. As reported by Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, Cabrera left a game against the Angels on August 1 with a knee injury and he hasn't played since. An issue was discovered in his meniscus and with surgery not a viable option, additional rest is required. The Blue Jays are already hampered with injuries to Jose Bautista, Colby Rasmus, Brandon Morrow and Josh Johnson. Add in the loss of Cabrera and the Blue Jays will most certainly be calling up players from the Minor Leagues in September. "We'll add a couple of pitchers, at least,"  manager John Gibbons said. "I'm sure there will be a couple of position players, but you don't know when Colby will be back, or Bautista. We'll bring another catcher so we'll have three catchers." Cabrera had an excellent season last year with the Giants. He batted .346 with 11 home runs and 60 rbi's in 113 games.  He is a career .284 hitter with 72 home runs, 1,091 hits and 86 stolen bases in 1,072 games.
