Asdrubal Cabrera Injury: Indians Shortstop Day-To-Day With Tight Hamstring

Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was pulled from Friday night's loss to the Chicago White Sox with what was originally deemed a precautionary move. After the game, skipper Manny Acta said that Cabrera could have continued to play if the game wasn't already out of hand, but he chose to take the safe route with his shortstop.

After a breakout season a year ago, Cabrera is off to an even better start this season with a hitting line of .301/.395/.886 with five home runs and 20 RBI.
