Cabrera Leaves Game Early With Thumb Injury

New York Mets shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Saturday’s game in the bottom of the seventh inning after appearing to have pain in his left thumb following his at-bat in the top of the inning.

After the game, Mets manager Terry Collins announced that Cabrera re-aggravated his thumb injury that first occurred against the Miami Marlins on May 6. He also said that Cabrera will get a day.

Cabrera was 0 for 3 when he left the game and is hitting just .257 with a .720 OPS this season.

The 31-year old infielder has also been nursing an ailing hamstring and knee over the past couple of weeks.
