Orlando Cabrera out of Reds' NLDS Game 3 lineup

Oct 10, 2010, 4:29 PM EDT

Reds shortstop Orlando Cabrera was forced from Game 2 of the NLDS after aggravating an oblique muscle on his left side.  Now Paul Janish is drawing the start Sunday in Game 3, according to the Toronto Star’s Richard Griffin.

Cabrera told MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon on Saturday that he didn’t expect to miss any additional time, but the Reds would rather have a healthy Janish than run O-Cabs out there at less than 100 percent. 

Janish, 27, has made one plate appearance this postseason but failed to reach base.  Cabrera, 35, has a single and a strikeout in five at-bats.

The Reds are hoping to avoid elimination this evening in Cincinnati with right-hander Johnny Cueto battling the Phillies’ Cole Hamels.
