Indians' Cabrera injured

BY foxsports • July 5, 2011

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.
