Indians’ Cabrera injured
Indians All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera has been replaced in
the fourth inning because of an apparent ankle injury.
Cabrera twisted his ankle while making a leaping throw in the
third inning. Cabrera backhanded Francisco Cervelli’s grounder in
the hole before making the throw and landing awkwardly. He was
checked by trainer Lonnie Soloff and manager Manny Acta but
remained in the game.
However, Acta pulled him for a pinch-hitter in the fourth. The
Indians had no immediate word on Cabrera’s condition.
Cabrera came in batting .293 with a career-high 14 homers and 49
RBIs in 83 games. He has also made several spectacular fielding
plays and Sunday was named an AL All-Star for the first time.
