Cleveland Indians' shortstop sensation Asdrubal Cabrera left the June 3 game with the New York Yankees with a strained right quad. In the top of the fifth inning, Cabrera grounded to second baseman Robinson Cano, who threw him out. Approximately halfway down the line, Cabrera stumbled and began to pull up. After crossing first base, he dropped to the ground and needed help leaving the field. MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports that Cabrera suffered a right quad strain. He had played through discomfort since late April. Bastian repeated the news in a Monday evening tweet. Indians announce that it is indeed a strained right quad for SS Asdrubal Cabrera. He's been fighting that since late April. — Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) June 4, 2013 During his at bat in the third inning of Monday night's game, Cabrera laid down a successful sacrifice bunt. As he ran, though, he pulled up after crossing the base with a grimace on his face. Further examination, likely on Tuesday, will help determine the extent of the injury. Mike Aviles moved from second base to shortstop, and Jason Kipnis took over at second base, filling in Cabrera's spot in the batting order. This could become the norm should Cabrera miss extended time. Cabrera is hitting .256 on the season but .301 since early May. His contributions come mainly in the field, where he is a nightly highlight reel at the shortstop position. Following their loss to the Yankees, the Indians are in second place, one game behind the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central division.
