SAN DIEGO -- Shortstop Everth Cabrera, on the disabled list since Aug. 10 with a left hamstring strain, will join Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore soon for a Minor League injury rehabilitation assignment.

Lake Elsinore plays at home this weekend and finishes its California League regular-season schedule Monday but it has clinched a playoff spot. The playoffs begin Wednesday.

"Cabby is feeling better," said Padres manager Bud Black. "We'll get him out to Lake Elsinore. There's a chance you could see him there the next few days. He'll get some at-bats and get up to game speed."

This is the second disabled list stint this season for Cabrera because of his left hamstring. He missed 21 games in July with a similar strain, though it's in a different spot.

The Padres have used Alexi Amarista almost exclusively at shortstop since Cabrera went on the disabled list, though Yangervis Solarte made a start there Aug. 13.
