The Blue Jays announced the move following the game.
Cabrera, 28, is batting .278 with three home runs and 29 RBIs in 78 games this season.
. The Blue Jays plan to call up infielder Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo to take Cabrera's place on the active roster.
Kawasaki was demoted to Triple-A Buffalo this week when Jose Reyes was activated from the disabled list.
