Tigers 3B Cabrera back out of lineup
The reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner had missed three straight games with what the team called a strained abdomen, but he returned for Tuesday night's 2-1 loss to Boston and went 0 for 4.
Manager Jim Leyland said "he's a little sore" before the lineup was posted in the locker room.
Asked by a reporter if he just needed a day off, Cabrera said "yeah." Then he extended his hand to shake hands, said "thank you," smiled and walked away.
Don Kelly is scheduled to play third and bat sixth.
