Asdrubal Cabrera 2B/SS TB 3 weeks ago

Cabrera (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune reports.

Cabrera was sent for an MRI on Sunday, after straining his hamstring during Saturday's game against the Astros. He'll be eligible to return from the disabled list July 27, with Jake Elmore likely getting most of the playing time at shortstop while Cabrera is sidelined. Tim Beckham was recalled from Triple-A Durham for the corresponding transaction.

Manager Kevin Cash said after Saturday's game that the severity of Cabrera's hamstring injury is unclear, but that more information should be available Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cabrera left Saturday's game with a hamstring strain, which could cause him to be sidelined for Sunday's contest. The Rays will have more information on Cabrera's status on Sunday, but the team may opt to not rush him back just before the All-Star break.

Cabrera left Saturday's game against the Astros with a strained right hamstring.

Cabrera was removed prior to the third inning, after hitting a double and scoring a run in the second. With just one game remaining before the All-Star break, the Rays probably won't push him to be ready for Sunday.

Cabrera is not in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals, MLB.com's Bill Chastain reports.

Cabrera will get a rare game out of the starting lineup, though he'll likely slot back in for the second game of the doubleheader. He's recovered from his slow start to some extent, but his .226/.281/.353 slash line still leaves a lot to be desired. Cabrera is on pace for just 10 home runs, 42 RBI, 50 runs and six stolen bases in 546 at-bats.

Cabrera is out of the lineup Friday, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

Cabrera has gone hitless in five of his last seven games and his average now sits at .208 (.266 OBP). Friday's starter at shortstop, Nick Franklin, has been even worse so far this season, so Cabrera should still see the bulk of the starts in the immediate future.

Cabrera (elbow) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Angels, Steve Carney of 620 WDAE reports.

Cabrera sat out Sunday's game due to a hyperextended elbow, but after an off day Monday, he's back in the lineup at his usual shortstop spot.

Cabrera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners due to a hyperextended right elbow, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cabrera hurt his elbow while swinging during a 11-pitch at-bat in the seventh inning of Saturday's game. The shortstop indicated after the game that he expected to be fine, so it's possible that manager Kevin Cash just wanted to give Cabrera an extended rest with the Rays having an off day Monday. Nick Franklin is filling in for Cabrera in Sunday's series finale.

Cabrera (groin) is back in the lineup hitting seventh Friday against the Orioles.

Cabrera has been bothered by a groin issue for several days and had been unable to take the field, but he appears to be healthy enough to return to shortstop Friday. He is getting on base at just a .267 clip, so there is not much upside here other than the fact that Cabrera will be in the lineup most days.

Ray manager Kevin Cash is hopeful that Cabrera (groin) will return to the lineup by Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cabrera has at least seen the field as a pinch-hitter recently, so he probably has a better chance of making it into the lineup than Steven Souza, who was injured at the same time as him. When Cabrera returns, he'll supplant Tim Beckham and Nick Franklin out of the starting shortstop position, which could mean Beckham returns to the minors.

Cabrera (groin) is not in the lineup Wednesday against he Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cabrera is believed to be just a pinch-hitting option until at least Friday, so it's not a big surprise he's out of the lineup Wednesday. Nick ranklin will slide over to shortstop in his place, while Jake Elmore will enter the lineup at second base.
