Cabrera injures hand. Out two months.

Sunday April 19, 2009

Everth Cabrera injured his hand in an at bat in the to of the 6th inning today and is lost for at least 2 months according to the San Diego Union Tribune.

The Padres recently waived Travis Denker and Matt Antonelli is still on the DL so the Padres options at middle infield are extremely limited.

Will they call up Sean Kazmar or Craig Stansberry from AAA or Jesus Lopez or Eric Sogard from AA to fill Cabrera's slot on the bench?

Update Monday April 20, 2009
Everth Cabrera returned to San Diego for surgery on the broken hamate bone in his hand and was placed on the 60 day DL. Don't expect to see him back in a Padres uniform before Late July or early August.

Cabrera is eligible to return to the active roster on June 20th, but will probably not be activated from the DL until after the All Star break given that he can spend a maximum of 20 days on a rehab assignment in the minor leagues.
