Padres Injury Update: Everth Cabrera confirmed out for season

By on 9/25/2014 11:00:00 AM

The San Diego Padres improved to 76-82 on the season following a 4-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday. Although in fourth place in the National League West mainly due to an underwhelming offense that is 30th in the league in runs scored, the Padres are 2nd in the league in ERA. On the injury front, shortstop Everth Cabrera has been confirmed out for the final games of the season.

I reported on September 23 that Cabrera, who has been out with a hamstring strain, was back in San Diego after working out in Arizona.  The chance of Cabrera returning to the Padres active roster before the end of the season is unlikely.

An update on Cabrera, as reported by Jeff Sanders at, is the Cabrera's season is officially over. Manager Bud Black says he has yet to rejoin the team after since he was arrested on September 3 on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana. He was scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment at that time after missing the last 40 games with a left hamstring injury.

Cabrera, who also served a 50-game suspension last season as part of the Biogenesis scandal, hasn't been able to recover physically from the injury, according to Black.

Cabrera, in his sixth Major League season, is batting .232 with three home runs and 20 RBI this season. In 481 career games, Cabrera has a batting average of .248 with 12 home runs and 128 RBI.
