ANAHEIM, California - Despite an MRI conducted on Friday, there remains uncertainty about the status of Melky Cabrera's injured left knee and he will head to the Blue Jays' facility in Dunedin, Florida for further evaluation.

A club official said the imaging revealed "issues" with Cabrera's meniscus.

Cabrera, who turns 29 on August 11, has a slash line of .279/.322/.360 in 88 games this season.

Hobbled by hamstring and knee injuries since late March, Cabrera has been sapped of his speed on the base paths and his range in the outfield. On multiple occasions this season, Cabrera has struggled to make routine plays, which have fallen for hits or allowed runners to take an extra base.

Cabrera was placed on the disabled list after Wednesday's game in Oakland, marking his second trip to the DL with a knee injury. He missed 18 games between June 28 and July 20 with tendinitis in his left knee.
