Baltimore Orioles Inside Pitch 2008-08-30
Daniel Cabrera's undetermined arm issues had his weekend start in question.

That question has been answered -- Cabrera will not start this weekend because he'll be serving a six-game suspension. Cabrera earned the suspension after hitting Yankees star Alex Rodriguez with a pitch July 29. After appealing the suspension, and after learning it was upheld, the timing was right for Cabrera to serve the penalty.

He underwent an MRI on his right elbow Tuesday, and despite a clean report, was still unaware of when his sore arm would rebound enough to appear in a game.

"There's a little pain there," Cabrera told reporters in St. Petersburg, where the Orioles were playing the Rays. "When you play baseball, you always have some pain. You can pitch with some pain, and this one isn't a big thing."

Cabrera has seen a dip in velocity in the second half of the season, perhaps a result of discomfort. He told reporters Wednesday that the ailment was "tendinitis" -- commonly treated with rest.

Six games will allow Cabrera to skip his regularly scheduled Saturday start. The Orioles will move the rest of the rotation up one day to accommodate the opening.

RAYS 14, ORIOLES 3: If Cliff Floyd drives in five runs without homering, the opposition is in for a long night. The Orioles were, after ace Jeremy Guthrie allowed seven runs in just three innings of work.
