HOUSTON -- Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Saturday night's game against the Houston Astros with a left wrist contusion.

Cabrera slipped on the steps walking from the clubhouse to the dugout before the game and used his left arm to break the fall. He still started and batted twice in the first inning of the Indians' 19-6 win. He singled off Philip Humber and scored, then grounded out off left-handed reliever Dallas Keuchel to end the inning.

"When he turned around [to bat] right-handed, it started to bother him," manager Terry Francona said.

X-rays were negative.

"It's a little sore right now," Cabrera said. "It's not a big deal. Everything's good. I don't feel like it was serious. A little sore. I don't think [I'll play Sunday]. I'll be back soon. Maybe Monday."
