Fresh Old Faces on the Horizon

According to Anthony Castrovince of Asdrubal Cabrera's return to the big league club could come as early as Thursday. He writes:

Asdrubal Cabrera (sprained left shoulder joint) begins his rehab at Double-A Akron tonight and will likely play two games before the Indians evaluate him again. He could be back with the club as soon as Thursday.

The other item of note in his most recent post is that Sizemore batting in the number two spot (as noted in last night's game recap) is not a temporary thing. He said that Cabrera would be expected to fill in at the top of the order upon his return from injury.

This means it only took Eric Wedge a couple years to address two major issues within the line-up (Sizemore out of leadoff and Peralta to third). Now if he could drop Grady one more spot and leave DeRo in his best spot in the lineup (second), then we would have a really fearsome top of the order.

Now if the team could only develop their own talent...
