Tigers’ Cabrera leaves game in 6th
Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera left Thursday night’s game against Minnesota in the sixth inning with left biceps tendinitis.
Cabrera went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts in the game. After coming in from the field after the fifth inning, the first baseman walked with a team trainer from the dugout back into the clubhouse. The Tigers say he is listed as day-to-day.
He started the night hitting .338 with 33 homers and 107 RBIs, putting him in the top two in all three triple-crown categories.
Manager Jim Leyland moved Don Kelly from left field to first base to replace Cabrera and put Casper Wells into left field.
