Miguel Cabrera aggravated a lingering right ankle injury Wednesday night on a slide into home plate. He has appeared in — and recorded at least one hit in — every game since, but the issue won’t go away.
According to MLB.com’s Jason Beck, the Detroit slugger is sitting out of Sunday’s series finale against the Twins to rest his ailing right ankle.
Cabrera is currently sporting an .885 OPS, which would be his lowest OPS since 2004.
