"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.
