• Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera exited Wednesday's game in the eighth inning with right wrist soreness. He was replaced in the field by Brent Lillibridge. Cabrera has battled the injury on and off all month.

• Indians third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall went 1-for-5 with a home run in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Twins. In eight games since coming off the disabled list, Chisenhall is hitting .280 (7-for-20) with two homers and four RBIs.

• Infielder Jason Donald (sore right wrist) still has discomfort in his throwing hand, but is able to play catch and was available off the bench as a pinch-runner. Donald is not comfortable fielding or hitting yet.

• The Indians set a franchise record by using 10 pitchers in a game on Tuesday. It fell one shy of tying the Major League record of 11 pitchers used. Cleveland used nine pitchers in a game twice (Sept. 14, 1971, and Sept. 14, 2006).
