Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Tuesday’s game in the fourth inning with a sprained right ankle suffered while coming down after a leaping throw versus the Yankees.

Cabrera was injured in the third, but he stayed in to finish the inning.  The Indians opted to remove him in favor of Lonnie Chisenhall when it was his turn to bat in the fourth.

Cabrera, who has 14 homers and 49 RBI this season, is listed as day-to-day.

If Cabrera can’t play in the All-Star Game next week, Detroit’s Jhonny Peralta would be the obvious choice to step in as Derek Jeter‘s backup.
