SAN DIEGO -- Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera, a late scratch Sunday with a left hamstring issue, was out of the lineup Monday and headed for an MRI exam.
"Either today or [Tuesday]," he said.
Cabrera described the injury "like a ball in the middle of my hamstring. The pain is not that bad, but the trainers are worried about that ball."
Cabrera just came off the disabled list with a left hamstring strain July 29. He had started 10 of 11 games at shortstop since being activated after missing most of July.
