Melky Cabrera will have season-ending surgery on broken pinkie finger

Free agent this offseason, which will be interesting.

Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera suffered a broken pinkie finger sliding back into first base when Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez made a snap throw to first base in the third inning of tonight’s game at Fenway Park… Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports that Cabrera will undergo season-ending surgery to fix the broken finger. It’s a big loss for the Blue Jays, who are still within striking distance for either of the two American League Wild Card slots… He ends the season with an impressive .301/.351/.458 slash line along with 16 home runs and 73 RBI — a nice bounce-back year after struggling in 2013.
