UPDATE: Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reports that Cabrera injured his left forearm. The team is expected to update his condition after the game.
8:14 AM: Asdrubal Cabrera left Monday’s game against the Rays with an injury to his left arm, reports Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Cabrera suffered the injury during a collision with third baseman Jhonny Peralta while trying to make a play for a groundball hit by Hank Blalock in the first inning. At the time, Cabrera was shifted over second base while Peralta was in the shortstop position.
Cabrera was in a noticeable amount of pain as he was carted off the field with his left arm wrapped. He was replaced in the lineup by Luis Valbuena.
Should Cabrera have to miss a significant amount of time, Hoynes mentions prospect infielder Jason Donald as a possibility to take his place. Donald, 25, was acquired from the Phillies last July in the Cliff Lee trade. He is batting .281/.398/.430 with two homers, 10 doubles and 17 RBI over his first 135 at-bats with Triple-A Columbus while splitting time between second base and shortstop.
