Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said SS Asdrubal Cabrera (quadriceps) has been dealing with a right quadriceps injury on and off since late April. Francona said the team has been monitoring the situation and that Cabrera has been good about letting the team knows how he feels.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has been dealing with the injury for several weeks but has not gone on the disabled list at this point. There is still a chance he could go on the DL if the injury affects his play. If he did miss some time, Mike Aviles likely would see most of the time at shortstop. Aviles would be an waiver pick up in AL-only leagues as well as some deep mixed leagues if an owner was looking to add depth.

Former Cleveland Indians C Sandy Alomar Jr. has accepted a spot on manager Terry Francona's staff for 2013. However, Alomar might still be a candidate for another manager position elsewhere this winter. Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said former Houston Astros manager Bradley Mills is also a candidate to join Francona's staff. Hitting coach Bruce Fields and third base coach Steve Smith will not be back with the Indians for the 2013 season. It is still unclear whether pitching coach Ruben Niebla, bullpen coach Dave Miller or first base coach Tom Wiedenbauer will be back with Cleveland next season.
