Indians' injured outfield allows Cabrera to play vs. Astros

CLEVELAND -- With four outfielders currently on the disabled list, the Cleveland Indians were in need of some outfield reinforcements.

Veteran Melky Cabrera was signed to a minor league contract on April 25, but when Cleveland started losing outfielders to injuries, Cabrera was fast-tracked to Cleveland, where he'll be in the lineup Saturday night for the third game of a four-game series between the Indians and Houston Astros.

The 33-year-old Cabrera's contract was purchased from Triple-A Columbus on May 20. A switch-hitter, Cabrera brings some needed balance to a Cleveland lineup that was lefty heavy. Cabrera also brings a proven track record for production.
