Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera, currently enjoying a breakout season, suffered a left hamstring injury in today’s game against the Diamondbacks. He was replaced defensively in the top of the ninth by Pedro Ciriaco after going 3-for-4. The Union-Times suggests Cabrera will likely go on the disabled list along with outfielder Carlos Quentin.

Cabrera is hitting .305 on the season with a .377 on-base percentage and a league-best 31 stolen bases in 37 attempts. FanGraphs values him at 3.4 Wins Above Replacement already, putting him in a ninth-place tie with Orioles third baseman Manny Machado. Losing Cabrera is a crushing blow to the Padres, winners of six consecutive games. In fourth place, they are only two games behind the first-place Diamondbacks.

    Dudes been raking and stealing bags at a record pace. He will be missed however besides starting pitching the Padres have no shortage of Position players to help take his place. They wont be stealing bags anywhere near his pace but should hit alright until he gets back.

      Too bad he was caught cheating too.

        False.

        He’s on the Biogenesis list.

        “He’s on the Biogenesis list” =/= “caught cheating”

        Suspicious yes. Caught cheating no, or at least not yet.

        ptfu, I agree with you. But that was duck’s point.

    That really hurts the Padres since he was playing well. Still it has been impressive what the Padres have done recently.. won 6 in a row vs division leaders nonetheless with their starting 1b, 2b and CF on the DL.

    That’s okay, there’s still plenty of other Cabreras left.
