That single will be it for Miguel Cabrera tonight. Quick visit from Ausmus and trainer Kevin Rand leads to exit. Don Kelly pinch-running.

The Tigers announced that Cabrera would be day-to-day because of left hamstring tightness.
.@MiguelCabrera left tonight's #Tigers game with left hamstring tightness and is day-to-day.If you remember last year, Cabrera had a hamstring issue that placed him on the DL for quite some time, however, that was his right hamstring. On Sunday it was his left, so nothing to worry about there. Cabrera said this to James Schmehl.

Miguel Cabrera said his left hamstring felt better today than it did on Sunday, but it began to tighten up in the "last couple innings."

After a poor start of the 2014 season, the two-time reigning MVP has returned to top form. He is currently hitting .329 with 12 home runs and 52 RBI's through 60 games. On Monday, Cabrera played DH and Victor Martinez took the first base role. Cabrera looked great and went 2-4 with a home run. The Tigers should remain atop of the American League Central as long as Cabrera makes a speedy recovery and as long as the bullpen steps it up somehow. Cabrera could win three MVP's in a row if he finished the rest of the season strong. If he achieved that he would be the first player to do so since Barry Bonds took home four consecutive MVP's from 2001-2004.
