The Indians lost Asdrubal Cabrera to a quad strain that sent him to the 15-day disabled list, but as of today he is back. It sure feels as if it has been even longer since Cabrera went down on June 3rd at Yankee stadium. Cabrera, 27, has been sidelined since suffering the injury on June 3 at Yankee Stadium while running out a 5th-inning ground ball (placed on 15-day DL June 4). For the season, he is hitting .254 (52-205) with 28 runs, 18 doubles, 2 triples, 5 home runs and 25RBI in 53 games. In 35 contests since April 18 he has carried a .299 avg. (46-154) and an .862 OPS figure (.351OB/.511SLG). Cabrera is scheduled to be the Indians’ starting shortstop for tonight’s tilt in Baltimore, while riding a 33-game errorless streak. Granted the Indians were in a tough part of the schedule, but Asdrubal Cabrera went down in the second game of what would become an eight game losing streak. The loss of Cabrera during that streak certainly didn’t help matters for the Tribe, who eventually turned it around going 9-4 once the streak was snapped. The corresponding move to Asdrubal Cabrera’s activation is at the expense of journeyman utility infielder John McDonald, recently acquired from Pittsburgh. The Cleveland Indians have two more games in Baltimore before heading to Chicago and Kansas City. [Related:Orioles 6 Indians 3: “Bad” Masterson’s seventh turns a W into an L]
