Asdrubal Cabrera turned a ridiculous double play

7 Comments

In case you missed it, Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera turned an incredibly acrobatic double play Saturday in Cleveland’s 9-4 win over the Mets.

Jason Kipnis fielded a hard-hit Zach Lutz grounder with a runner on first base and one out, and air-mailed a backhanded flip to the second base bag. Cabrera averted disaster by leaping high for the ball and also kept his cool enough to plant down on second and make a strong throw over to first. 4-6-3.

MLB.com put the replay in its “Must C Clips” section:

White Sox first baseman José Abreu underwent lower abdominal surgery on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It was an outpatient procedure that is expected to keep him away from baseball activity for two weeks.

Abreu, 31, was held out of Tuesday’s lineup, his first day off in more than two months. This season, Abreu has hit a productive .272/.331/.491 with 22 home runs and 78 RBI in 526 plate appearances.

The White Sox will likely play Matt Davidson at first base and put Daniel Palka at DH while Abreu is out.
