Indians OF Abraham Almonte to Miss 3-5 Weeks with Bicep Tendon Strain

CLEVELAND – The Indians and their fans may get a longer look at former first-round pick Bradley Zimmer than first expected, as the news today on outfielder Abraham Almonte has him out for the next few weeks.

The Indians announced today that Almonte was re-evaluated on Tuesday and underwent an MRI to his right arm/shoulder area after leaving Monday’s game against the Rays.

The exam and MRI confirmed a high grade strain to his biceps tendon. Abraham will be shut down from activity and is expected to miss 3-to-5 weeks before return to activity.

Almonte and Brandon Guyer are now both on the shelf for an extended amount of time, part of the reason the team called up Zimmer on Tuesday, the teams’ 2014 first-round pick.

On the season the 27-year-old Almonte is hitting .221 with one homer and six RBI in 33 games with 100 at bats.
