Indians put SS Asdrubal Cabrera on 15-day DL

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The Cleveland Indians have put All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right quadriceps.

Indians manager Terry Francona says Cabrera could be out for three to four weeks, although he says that's merely a guess.

Cabrera had to be helped off the field Monday night at Yankee Stadium after hurting himself running out a grounder.

The Indians recalled infielder Juan Diaz from AAA Columbus. Mike Aviles started at shortstop Tuesday night against New York.

Cabrera is hitting .254 with five home runs, 25 RBIs and a team-leading 18 doubles.
