Detroit's Miguel Cabrera, the major-league leader in batting average and RBI, sat out the Tigers' game against Cleveland on Saturday with an abdominal injury. Cabrera was forced to leave the team's last two games early with abdominal discomfort.
Cabrera is listed as day-to-day and the team doesn't have plans to rest him for an extended period, even though he has been hobbled for weeks by abdominal, hip and groin injuries.
"Our primary concern with Miguel Cabrera is making sure he's healthy," general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "If the doc tells us he's going to be in a position where he'll get worse by playing, we will not play him. But nobody has ever said to us that shutting him down for an extended period will make him better."
