Indians Vs. White Sox: Cleveland Lineup Will Be Without Asdrubal Cabera, Carlos Santana On Saturday

If the Cleveland Indians are going to be able to rebound on Saturday against Jake Peavy and the Chicago White Sox, they'll have to do it without another two key components of their offense.

The Tribe -- already without Travis Hafner -- lost Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana during Friday night's loss and the two are not in the lineup on Saturday. Cabrera was removed from Friday night's game with a tight left hamstring; Santana was removed with head/neck stiffness after taking a foul tip off his mask. Both were said to have been removed on Friday as a precaution, but now that they are out of Saturday's lineup, it's reasonable to believe the injuries a little more serious than they were originally thought to be.
