Asdrubal Cabrera has missed the past two games with a right wrist injury and manager Manny Acta said yesterday that the shortstop’s potential return timetable is “still up in the air.”
Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports that Cabrera is hoping to return by the end of the Indians’ current road trip, which goes through Thursday, but adds that “there are no guarantees that will be the case.”
In the meantime he might be available off the bench, although Cabrera has been bothered by wrist pain for weeks now and has gone just 6-for-50 (.120) in his last 15 games.
Cabrera hasn’t been able to duplicate the power he showed in a breakout 2011 season, but has hit .267 with 14 homers and a .753 OPS in 128 games after totaling 18 homers in his first four seasons.
