Tigers' Cabrera leaves game with ankle injury, but seems OK

Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera left Thursday's game with an ankle injury, but apparently the injury is not serious.

"The trainers didn't seem too concerned," manager Jim Leyland said, according to MLB.com. "I talked to Miggy after the game and he didn't seem too concerned [either]."

Although Cabrera's ankle was taped afterward, he said he was OK. Asked when he expected to return to the lineup, he said, "Tomorrow hopefully."

Cabrera has had problems with his ankle for much of August, although he has been able to play through it and be productive.

Cabrera limped slightly while running out a flyball in his first at-bat Thursday, and after he took his position at third base in the second inning, he continued to limp and left the game.

Cabrera is batting .326 with 31 home runs and an American League-leading 105 RBIs.
