MIAMI (AP) -Florida Marlins slugger Miguel Cabrera left Thursday's game against the New York Mets after two innings with a stiff torso.
Cabrera bunted with a runner on second base in the first inning - his first sacrifice since his rookie year in 2003. When he returned to the dugout, he had a discussion with manager Fredi Gonzalez, then played in the field in the second before leaving the game.
The Marlins described the move as precautionary.
Cabrera left Wednesday's game after seven innings, but the Marlins made no mention of any injury then.
