Asdrubal Cabrera 2B/SS WAS 25 Days

Cabrera experienced soreness in his right side during Sunday's 14-6 win over the Giants, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Cabrera went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in the contest before he was replaced by Danny Espinosa. His availability for the series with the Phillies that begins Monday remains in question, with an update on his condition unlikely to arrive until hours before game time.

Cabrera is out of the lineup Saturday against the Pirates.

Danny Espinosa will take over at the keystone Saturday with lefty Jeff Locke on the hill for Pittsburgh. Cabrera has hit safely in nine of 12 games since joining Washington but his opportunities against lefties may remain limited.

Cabrera, hitting second on Tuesday, went 3-for-5 with two doubles.

He's working on a tidy six game hitting streak, and Cabrera has slashed .286/.350/.400 in 35 at-bats since joining the Nats. He'll continue to see regular playing time at second base for Washington.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Nationals are among the teams eyeing Asdrubal Cabrera.

The Blue Jays and Giants -- who both have pressing needs at second base -- have also been linked to the impending free agent infielder. Washington, like Toronto and San Francisco, is set at shortstop, so Cabrera would presumably play the keystone there as well. The 28-year-old is batting .246/.305/.386 with nine home runs and 40 RBI in 97 games this season as Cleveland's shortstop.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports the Blue Jays are looking at Asdrubal Cabrera to fill their second base vacancy.

The Jays have a need but don't have much payroll flexibility, making Cabrera and his expiring contract a fit. FOX Sports' Jon Morosi also mentioned the Giants as having interest in Cabrera, presumably to play the keystone as well. The "perception" around baseball, per ESPN's Buster Olney, is that the Indians are prepared to move Cabrera before the deadline.

Buster Olney of ESPN.com writes that the "perception" around the Indians is that they are ready to move both Asdrubal Cabrera and Justin Masterson.

The Indians are just four games out in the AL Wild Card race and 6 1/2 games back in the AL Central, but they could move one or both if the right offer comes along. Cabrera and Masterson are both set to become free agents this offseason.

The Indians are hopeful that Asdrubal Cabrera (back) will be ready to return to the lineup over the weekend.

Manager Terry Francona is aiming for Saturday, though he admitted that might be a tad optimistic. Cabrera did increase his activity Thursday but will miss a third straight game due to back spasms. Jose Ramirez is getting another start at shortstop.
