Found June 04, 2013 on Burning River Baseball:
Roster Update: Because of the injury sustained by Asdrubal Cabrera last night to his right calf, he has been placed on the disabled list. Columbus starting short stop, Juan Diaz, will be brought in as his replacement on the 25 man roster and will take Mike Aviles place in the lineup as Aviles moves to starting short stop. While Aviles starting at short is the obvious solution, it is disappointing that the Indians didn't use this opportunity to promote Lonnie Chisenhall. He has been tearing up the International League as of late and is now ranked sixth on the team in RBI despite having about 90 less at bats than the next highest batter. His slash line of .364/.667/.434 makes him the team leader in all three stats. While Diaz will be available as back-up short stop, Chisenhall would be a starter and actually add something to the offense as he would replace Jason Giambi or Ryan Raburn on a daily basis.
