Cabrera, who had four hits Tuesday to boost his average to .278, has been on a tear of late. He entered play Wednesday as the team leader with 45 hits and has a .383 batting average since May 3.

The Blue Jays also confirmed that Sergio Santos will undergo surgery Thursday to shave down bone spurs and clean out loose bodies in the right elbow area. He’s expected to miss six weeks.

General manager Alex Anthopoulos has called the procedure a “minor cleanup.” Santos went on the disabled list a month ago with a right triceps injury.
