CHICAGO (AP) - Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera has left the Tigers' game against the Chicago White Sox in the fifth inning with an apparent injury.
Cabrera appeared to slow up when he was scoring on a two-run single by Victor Martinez. He came out to play third base in the bottom half of the inning, however, and seemed fine before leaving the field with trainer Kevin Rand after Paul Konerko's one-out fly out to right field.
There was no immediate word from the team on Cabrera's status. Don Kelly replaced Cabrera at third base.
Last year Cabrera became baseball's first triple crown winner since 1967. He was batting.359 with 31 home runs and 96 RBIs heading into Monday's game against Chicago.
