Miguel Cabrera leaves game with hamstring tightness, listed as day to day

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Cabrera has played through worse injuries before, but hamstrings can be tricky.

Miguel Cabrera left tonight's game against the Boston Red Sox in the bottom of the sixth inning due to an injury, which was later diagnosed as left hamstring tightness. The team has listed him as day-to-day. Don Kelly pinch ran for Cabrera and took over at first base.

Cabrera was seen limping down to first base after a single, and was immediately lifted from the game after a short conversation with Brad Ausmus and head athletic trainer Kevin Rand. Some also believe that Cabrera was limping earlier in the game when he scored easily from second base on a Victor Martinez double in the bottom of the fourth. Cabrera did not seem to be affected by the issue on the defensive side of the ball, however. He made a big play in the top of the sixth inning, throwing A.J. Pierzynski out at third base after a groundout by Stephen Drew.

Cabrera was pulled from a game last month due to a similar hamstring issue, but in the right leg. He did not miss any game action. This injury seems to be fairly minor, especially considering what Cabrera played through last fall. However, hamstring injuries can be tricky, so it is anyone's guess as to how long Cabrera may or may not be out of commission.
