After two days of taking a wait and see approach with Everth Cabrera and his hamstring, the Padres have decided that the best course of action is to place him on the disabled list.
Sounds like #Padres SS Everth Cabrera (mild strain, left hamstring) will go on the DL tomorrow. Move will be official then.— Corey Brock (@FollowThePadres) June 19, 2013
Cabrera strained the offending hammy in the eighth inning of Sunday's win over the D-backs attempting to add to his league-leading total of 31 stolen bases. Prior to being replaced for the ninth inning by newcomer Pedro Ciriaco, Everth had played in every inning of every game this season. In addition to his slew of steals, Cabrera has put up a .305/ .382/ .418 slash line- all career highs by far. His four homers are twice his previous career high, set in his rookie season of 2009 and matched again last year.
Ciriaco started in Cabrera's stead in Monday's win over San Francisco and Alexi Amarista got the nod on Tuesday. Amarista was less than impressive, making a few miscues and getting away with an error he made being ruled a hit.
Since the move is not yet official, it's unclear who the team will be calling up to take his spot on the roster. I'm not going to speculate because that never ends well for me, but you can feel free to do so in the comments.
