Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera injures right leg

NEW YORK (AP) — Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera has been helped off the field at Yankee Stadium after straining his right quadriceps while running to first base on a groundout in the fifth inning.

Cabrera pulled up limping about two-thirds of the way down the line Monday night when he was trying to beat out a grounder up the middle. Robinson Cano fielded the ball behind second base and his throw across his body was in time for the second out. Cabrera, a two-time All-Star, immediately went to the ground holding his leg.

He was checked out by a trainer and manager Terry Francona, then tried to walk off the field with an arm around each. But Cabrera had to stop. He then made the remainder of the trip to the dugout putting weight only on his left foot. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
