The banged-up Cleveland Indians might finally get some pieces back.

All-Star Grady Sizemore might be activated from the DL on Tuesday when the Indians open a three-game series in Pittsburgh. Sizemore has been out since May 31 with an inflamed left elbow.

Also, infielder Asdrubal Cabrera will begin a 20-day rehabilitation assignment on Tuesday after being sidelined nearly three weeks with a sprained shoulder.

Cabrera injured his left shoulder while sliding into second base against Minnesota on June 3. The club said he will report to Double-A Akron.

The 23-year-old sprained the AC joint in his shoulder while trying to break up a double play. Cabrera was batting .316 with a team-high 38 runs, 13 doubles, 27 RBIs and seven steals when he was injured.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
