"[Cabrera] disagreed with the strike zone," Rays manager Kevin Cash said after the game.
Cabrera's ejection is the first by a Rays player this season -- manager Kevin Cash has been ejected twice and hitting coach Derek Shelton once. It's the fourth ejection of Cabrera's career, the last one coming on Oct. 4 in Game 2 of the National League Division Series when he played for the Nationals.
Nick Franklin took over at shortstop for Cabrera, who was not the only player to voice words about the strike zone. Steven Souza Jr. also had an exchange with Danley after being called out on strikes in the eighth inning. In total, seven Rays struck out looking Monday.
