Cabrera leaves game with soreness in groin

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera left Saturday night's game against Chicago with soreness in his groin, and Jim Leyland wasn't confident about a quick return.
"I don't think it is too good," Leyland said after Detroit's 7-6 victory.

Cabrera, who singled and walked in Detroit's six-run rally in the ninth, was replaced by Donnie Kelly in the 10th inning. Cabrera has been struggling with hip, groin and abdominal problems since late July, and was visibly struggling as he ran the bases after his walk.

Cabrera, who had three hits in the game, currently leads the American League with a .349 batting average and 136 RBIs. The team is listing him as day-to-day.

"I'll see how it is tomorrow," Cabrera said. "It's sore right now."
