Rays lose Asdrubal Cabrera to hamstring strain

From the official transactions feed of Major League Baseball …

Cabrera suffered the injury Saturday while scoring on a Rene Rivera RBI single. It looked like a bad strain, but he should be able to return before the end of the month. Cabrera has hit just .223/.275/.352 in 325 plate appearances this season for the Rays, but his defensive ratings have been fantastic so far.

Tampa Bay figures to use a combination of Tim Beckham and Jake Elmore in Cabrera’s absence.
