Tigers Injury Update: Miguel Cabrera exits early with ankle problem

By on 8/30/2014 10:15:00 PM

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera left in the fourth inning of Saturday night's game with the Chicago White Sox after hitting an RBI ground-out. Cabrera appeared to run hard though the first base bag but then pull up as he crossed it. Don Kelly moved from third to first when the Tigers took the field in the bottom of the fourth, and Nick Castellanos came in to play third.'s Jason Beck says that Cabrera may have aggravated an ankle problem that he has had for some time. Beck described it as "a chance at a much-desired infield hit turned into an aggravation of his injured right ankle." The look (pictured) on Cabrera's face shows the pain as he crossed the first base bag (video).

There is no word yet on the extent of the injury or if Cabrera will need to miss any significant time. White Sox beat writer Scott Merkin of, though, said that the injury may be a little more serious than originally thought.
With the Tigers fighting for both a division title and a wild card appearance, they cannot afford to lose their most productive hitter.
