Orlando Cabrera left tonight’s game against the Phillies after aggravating an injury to his left oblique, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
As you can see in the image to the right, Cabrera tweaked something while avoiding a takeout slide by Jayson Werth on a double play ball to end the bottom of the fourth inning.
Cabrera missed nearly the entire month of August due to a strained left oblique, so the Reds have the option of replacing him on the NLDS roster should this injury require a lengthy absence. The only catch, of course, is that he would not be eligible should the Reds reach the NLCS.
Paul Janish replaced Cabrera after the fourth inning and should continue to fill in at shortstop. Known more as a gloveman, Janish batted .260/.338/.385 with five homers, 25 RBI and a 22/30 K/BB ratio over 200 at-bats during the regular season.
