Cabrera day-to-day after straining left wrist

Cabrera day-to-day after straining left wrist

MINNEAPOLIS -- Asdrubal Cabrera is still trying to feel whole again after missing two months with a fractured left forearm earlier this season. Now, he has a strained left wrist to go with it.

Cabrera rolled his wrist while fielding Michael Cuddyer's single to the hole behind short in the fifth inning of Monday night's 9-3 loss to the Twins. X-rays were negative, and Cabrera is listed as day-to-day.

Though in obvious pain as he landed awkwardly on the wrist, Cabrera shook it off and remained in the game. But when he tried to take a few swings in the indoor cages, the pain got the best of him. He was replaced in the top of the seventh by pinch-hitter Luis Valbuena.

"I took a couple swings and felt it," Cabrera said. "We'll see how I feel [Tuesday]. But the X-rays were good. No bone broke."

Manager Manny Acta said the Indians would have to revisit the situation Tuesday to determine if Cabrera is fit to play. Cabrera is batting .263 with three homers and 24 RBIs this season.
