It wasn’t a big surprise after seeing Asdrubal Cabrera’s painful run down the first base line last night that today the team has placed him on the 15-day DL. The team also announced that they’ve recalled infielder Juan Diaz from AAA Columbus.
Diaz’ numbers in Columbus are pretty unimpressive as he’s batting .211 and .231 against righties according to the Tribe’s press release. Diaz also made a brief appearance in Cleveland in 2012, but count on seeing a good amount of Mike Aviles in the meantime.
The Indians’ supposed future at shortstop, Francisco Lindor, is currently playing for the Carolina Mudcats at age 19 after being selected in the first round of 2011. So, don’t even think about it.
