* Tribe SS Asdrubal Cabrera is out of the lineup again for the second consecutive game, as he battles left quadriceps tightness...With tomorrow's scheduled off day, Indians manager Manny Acta hopes three days of rest is enough to help Cabrera get healthy. As one of just a few batters in the lineup hitting well, the Indians cannot afford to lose Cabrera for an extended period.

* With Cabrera out, veteran 2B Mark Grudzielanek has taken over the leadoff spot for the Indians and INF Luis Valbuena has slid over to shortstop from his usual spot at second base.

* Indians closer Kerry Wood (strained right lat) is scheduled to make his second rehab apperance with the Double-A Akron Aeros tonight at 7:05 p.m...On Monday, Wood struggled in his first appearance since hurting his back after his second outing in spring training. He entrered the sixth inning for the Aeros with the game tied 10-10 and took the loss after allowing six runs on four hits and two walks in just 2/3 of an inning.
