Miguel Cabrera injury: Tigers 3B exits with irritation in abdominal area

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Miguel Cabrera left Friday's game against the Cleveland Indians with an abdominal injury.

Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera left Friday's game with an abdominal injury, according to the team's official Twitter. Cabrera left in the third inning against the Cleveland Indians, and it's described as "irritation of the abdominal area." He is listed as day-to-day on the injury report.

More Tigers: Bless You Boys

Cabrera was listed as day-to-day heading into this game, as well. He had the same injury on Thursday and left that game in the fifth inning. It's unclear the exact nature or seriousness of the issue; all that's being said is that it's an abdominal injury. At this point, smart money is on him missing some time as opposed to trying to gut it out, as that hasn't worked out so far.

Obviously, the Tigers need Cabrera back and need him healthy. They're dong well, but Cabrera is a big part of that, as he leads the team in all of the major batting stats. He's got a .359 batting average, 130 RBI, a .450 OBP and 43 home runs on the year.
