Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera will have his injured right wrist re-examined by hand specialist in Cleveland today, reports Jordan Bastian of MLB.com:

Asdrubal Cabrera wants to return to the Indians' lineup as soon as possible, but it remains unclear how much more recovery time the shortstop will require before coming back from his right wrist injury.

The shortstop is scheduled to meet [Friday] with an associate of hand specialist Dr. Thomas Graham.

Cabrera, 26, has now missed four straight games because of the discomfort in his wrist. The injury has bothered the All-Star for most of September, a fact demonstrated by his down numbers this month (.211/.360/.263).

The switch-hitting shortstop expressed hope that he would return to the line-up soon, possibly helping the Tribe play spoiler to the Tigers or White Sox, but said he did not want to play unless he felt 100 percent. After a breakout season in 2011, Cabrera has regressed some but is still batting .267/.336/.417 with fourteen home runs on the year.
