Cabrera progressing in rehab

CLEVELAND -- Asdrubal Cabrera, working his way back from a fractured left forearm he suffered in mid-May, should begin taking ground balls by the end of this week, manager Manny Acta said.

The Indians are not announcing an exact timetable for Cabrera to go out on a Minor League rehab assignment, but it will probably be after the All-Star break. It also won't be an exceptionally short assignment, as Acta told Cabrera on Monday.

"I told him he needs to have enough at-bats to come up here and play at his caliber," Acta said. "He understands that."

Acta didn't want to specify what that number of at-bats would be. All he'd say was that it won't be 15, and it won't be 100, either.

"Somewhere between 15 and 100," he said with a laugh.
