Cabrera missed nearly four weeks because of a severe left hamstring strain. He’ll be back with the Padres for their series-opener on Tuesday night against the visiting Cardinals. The speedy shortstop has batted just .218/.256/.290 in 80 games this season and he’s a mere 13-for-20 in stolen base attempts.

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Giants pitcher Dereck Rodriguez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring. Rodriguez apparently suffered the injury during Tuesday’s altercation with the Dodgers which featured Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley.

Rodriguez, 22, has been having an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.25 ERA with a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 80 innings across 12 starts and two relief appearances.

Casey Kelly will start in Rodriguez’s place against the Reds on Friday.
