For the second time in the past week Miguel Cabrera left last night’s game with shoulder soreness, and Jason Beck of MLB.com writes that “this time around both Cabrera and the Tigers sound a little more worried about it.”
Officially diagnosed with biceps tendinitis, Cabrera said he initially suffered the injury while diving for a ball defensively two weeks ago. He’s hit just .238 in 11 games since then, but has managed two homers and three doubles for a .452 slugging percentage.
Jim Leyland classified Cabrera’s status as “doubtful” for today’s game against John Danks and the White Sox, which is a tough break for the Twins. Detroit was out of the AL Central race long ago, so there’s no real reason for the Tigers to be anything but cautious with the AL leader in RBIs.
