Indians activate SS Asdrubal Cabrera
By The Associated Press
CLEVELAND (AP) The Indians have activated All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera from the bereavement list.
Cabrera left the club during its recent road trip to the west coast following the death of one of his grandfathers in Venezuela. Cabrera missed six games as the Indians went 7-2 on their trip to Kansas City, Seattle and Oakland. He will be back in uniform Tuesday night, when the Indians open a three-game series at home against the Royals.
To make room for Cabrera on the 25-man roster, the Indians optioned left-hander Nick Hagadone to Triple-A Columbus. He made three appearances after being recalled.
Cabrera is batting .282 with two homers and three RBIs in eight games. The 26-year-old hit 25 homers with 92 RBIs last season and was recently rewarded with a new, three-year contract.
