Here comes Cabrera
Asdrubal Cabrera will rejoin the Indians at a workout at Progressive Field today, as the club gets ready to head off to Seattle and the second half of the season. Jorge Velandia has been outrighted off the 40-man roster and sent to Triple-A Buffalo.
Cabrera was the everyday second baseman from the outset of the season but batted just .184 and was optioned to Buffalo on June 9. With the Bisons, he hit .326 (46-for-141) with four homers, seven doubles and 13 RBIs in 34 games. He was the International League batter of the week last week.
Cabrera played 29 games at short and just six at second base for Buffalo. Surprisingly, he made 10 errors in his time there. The Indians have insisted that nothing should be read into Cabrera getting the majority of his time at short, but you never know.
