Mets' Asdrubal Cabrera: Expected to return Friday

Cabrera (thumb) is expected to return from the disabled list Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports Monday.

Cabrera would be returning from the disabled list on his first eligible day if so. The thumb sprain he suffered was reportedly minor, so expect him back in the lineup as the Mets begin a weekend series with the Giants. Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports he will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday at High-A St. Lucie, which would put him perfectly on schedule for a Friday return.
