About a month after signing him to a minor-league deal, the Cleveland Indians have called Melky Cabrera up to the major league roster. The veteran outfielder will make his Cleveland debut tonight.
Cabrera will bat sixth in the lineup tonight against the Houston Astros and will start in right field for the Tribe.
Melky Cabrera added to ML roster, Evan Marshall optioned. Alexi Ogando removed from 40-man to make room for Melky, who hits 6th tonight. #Indians
