Asdrubal cherishes friendship with Peralta
DETROIT -- Asdrubal Cabrera and Detroit's Jhonny Peralta have quite a history. The two composed the Indians' middle infield for more than two seasons, and they've become even more intertwined despite being on separate teams this year.

Cabrera took over at shortstop and Peralta moved to second base for the Indians in 2009 before Peralta was traded to the Tigers late last season.

"He's a good player. We are great friends," said Cabrera, who said he learned a lot from Peralta.

Cabrera has been having an All-Star season, leading American League shortstops in average, home runs, RBIs and slugging percentage, and Peralta is second in all those categories.

Unfortunately, only one of them may make the All-Star team. Cabrera is second to Derek Jeter in fan voting for starters, with Peralta in fifth.
