Asdrubal Cabrera was held out of Monday night’s game with a sore right wrist, which has been bothering him since last week.
“He had X-rays yesterday,’’ manager Manny Acta said. “He also got checked by their [the Twins’] team doctor and everything looked normal. We’ll give him another day and see. I’m not putting him out there until he’s ready.’’
Cabrera also missed a game last week because of the injury. Monday night, Brent Lillibridge took his place at short.
CHANNELING ADRIAN PETERSON – A spanking new Minnesota Vikings uniform with running back Adrian Peterson’s name etched on the back was hanging in Michael Brantley’s locker Monday.
“One of the [Twins’] clubbies got it for me,’’ he said. “I’m a big Vikings fan. Have been since I was a kid and my father [big leaguer Mickey Brantley] was a Minnesota fan.’’
JUST A THOUGHT – David Huff was so efficient in erasing 10 batters in a row, four on strikeouts, during a rare bullpen appearance over the weekend, would the Tribe’s deep thinkers change his job description from starter to reliever?
“We like him as starter,’’ Acta said. “He’s never pitched out of the bullpen. I think we’ll continue to see him as a starter.’’
FARM FACTS – Bryson Myles doubled, singled twice and drove in a run as Lake County beat Fort Wayne 7-4 to even the best-of-three Midwest League semi-final series. Jordan Smith tripled, singled and drove in two runs and Tyler Naquin had two singles and one RBI.
