From Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer:

Asdrubal Cabrera slipped down the dugout steps about 10 minutes before game time Saturday night and bruised his left wrist. He is not expected to play in the series finale Sunday at Minute Maid Park.

The two-time All-Star was in the starting lineup. He singled in his first at-bats and scored a run in the Tribe’s eight-run first inning, but after batting twice in the inning, he was replaced by Mike Aviles.

“He slipped,” Indians manager Terry Francona told Hoynes. “I was right by the bat rack and was the first or second one there. He was kind of sprawled out. He put his hand down to soften the fall.”

X-rays were taken late Saturday and turned up negative. Cabrera is considered day-to-day.

The 27-year-old is batting .150/.227/.283 with two homers and three RBI in 16 games.
