Found July 23, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Detroit Tigers' third baseman Miguel Cabrera was held out of tonight's game against the Chicago White Sox with hip soreness after aggravating the flexor muscle last night. As reported by Joey Nowak of, "The reigning American League MVP left in the bottom of the fifth inning of Monday's game after scoring gingerly from second base on a Victor Martinez RBI single. He had a conversation with head athletic trainer Kevin Rand in the dugout before taking his position in the field, where he looked uncomfortable for two batters -- Adam Dunn singled past him in the first at-bat of the inning -- before leaving." " He's not playing. I'll leave it at that," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "He's not playing tonight. That's all I can tell you." The injury has been a nagging one for Cabrera, but he's always been able to play through injury. He's played in at least 150 games per season since his rookie year in 2003. Cabrera, who lead the league in home runs, runs batted in and batting average last season, is batting .358 with 31 home runs and 96 runs batted in this season in 97 games.  For his career, Cabrera has a .321 average with 352 home runs and 1,219 runs batted in.
