From Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune comes word that Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera has been diagnosed with a strained left hamstring and could be headed to the 15-day disabled list.

The Padres will wait a few days to see how he is recovering before they make a call on that move.

Cabrera missed 17 games in 2013 because of a similar injury. He’s off to a really poor start this season, batting just .218/.256/.290 in 343 plate appearances. The 27-year-old speedster has been caught on seven of his 20 stolen base attempts.

Alexi Amarista is starting at shortstop for the Friars on Tuesday night against the visiting Reds. Irving Falu is at second base.
