BREAKING NEWS: Cabrera out 2 weeks…

The Mets have announced that Asdrubal Cabrera has been diagnosed with a strained patella tendon in his left knee and will be out for 2 weeks. Cabrera will be given a platelet-rich plasma injection in New York today. It had been reported that Asdrubal Cabrera was on his way back to New York for more testing on his left knee, by Mike Puma of the NY Daily News this morning. Many people around the organization had maintained a tone that Cabrera had dodged a serious injury, including Assistant GM JP Riccardi. Riccardi told John Harper of the NY Daily News, “I don’t think it’s anything serious.”

Ruben Tejada will be the Mets starting shortstop for the time being, with Wilmer Flores retaining his utility role. This should put to rest all of the talk of Tejada being released or traded before Opening Night. It is now fair to wonder if Cabrera will be ready for Opening Night in Kansas City? In my opinion, I’m going to assume that Cabrera will begin the season on the disabled list, and Tejada will be the Mets Opening Night shortstop.
