It's believed shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera went through his last day on the disabled list during Tuesday's batting practice. He's expected to be activated Wednesday and inserted into the lineup against the Orioles.

Cabrera has been on the DL since June 4 with a strained right quadriceps muscle. He was expected miss anywhere from three to four weeks, if not longer.

"I don't know when they're going to take me off the DL, but I had a conversation with (GM) Chris (Antonetti) and they're going to make a decision after the game," said Cabrera. "I've got to wait and see, but I hope it's soon."

Manager Terry Francona said the team would have some news on Cabrera before Wednesday night's game. When Cabrera is activated, the Indians will have to make a corresponding move to create a roster spot. Infielder John McDonald could be designated for assignment.

Cabrera wanted to avoid a rehab assignment if at all possible. It appears he has.

"I'll start playing here," said Cabrera.
