Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera may return to the lineup within a few days, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca. The Blue Jays placed Cabrera on the disabled list June 27 with left knee tendinitis and he's been on a minor-league rehab assignment since July 12.
Cabrera's leg is not at 100 percent, according to Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, but the outfielder will play through the injury until it heals up. An MRI following his placement on the DL showed no more serious injury than the tendinitis.
Over 78 games this season, Cabrera has hit .278/.321/.362, just a year removed from a season that saw him hit .346. 2012 was cut short, however, when he was suspended for high levels of testosterone. The Blue Jays signed Cabrera to a two-year, $16 million contract in the offseason.
