Wrist feeling better, Asdrubal returns to lineup
CLEVELAND -- Asdrubal Cabrera's name found its way into Manny Acta's lineup on Saturday for the first time in nearly a week.

Cabrera responded well to treatment on his sprained right wrist and was pain-free after a batting practice session on Saturday. Aside from a one-inning cameo as a defensive replacement on Thursday, Cabrera hadn't played since Sunday.

"He went through batting practice and felt no discomfort," said Indians manager Manny Acta. "Going forward, we're still going to have to monitor that. But he's good to go."

While one middle infielder returned to the batting order, another received a day off. Acta sat second baseman Jason Kipnis in favor of Cord Phelps.

"I'm just trying to get Phelps in there and rest Jason so he can finish strong," Acta said.
