Cabrera broke his left forearm on May 17 against Tampa Bay after colliding with third baseman Jhonny Peralta. He hit .350 with three doubles, a homer and three RBIs during a six-game rehabilitation assignment.
Acta put Cabrera in at the top of the order playing shortstop against the Twins.
The Indians designated right-hander Jensen Lewis for assignment to make room for Cabrera. Lewis was 2-2 with a 4.18 ERA in 22 relief appearances.
