On his path to a second straight American League Triple Crown, perhaps only an injury can keep him from reaching it.  Chris Iott of MLive.com reports that reigning American League MVP Miguel Cabrera left Monday night’s game with what appears to be a leg injury: Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera removed from game during fifth inning due to injury STORY: http://t.co/oJpannawZq — Chris Iott (@Chris_Iott) July 23, 2013 Miguel Cabrera winces after scoring a run on Monday nightCredit: AP/MLive.com Cabrera was 0-1 with 2 BB and a run and may have been injured while scoring.  According to the Iott article: Cabrera has been battling a bad back near his left hip for some time now. He appeared to wince after scoring a run in the top of the fifth, then barely moved when Adam Dunn singled to his right in to lead off the bottom of the inning. One out later, Cabrera walked off the field along with head athletic trainer Kevin Rand. Don Kelly took his place at third base. This changes a number of things.  The Tigers are clinging to a surprisingly scant 1.5 game lead in the AL Central, by far the worst record of an AL division leader.  They would be in 3rd place or worse in 3 of the other 5 divisions.  Miggy is leading the AL in hitting by 37 points and in RBI by 1.  He trails the Baltimore Orioles Chris Davis by 6 HR, but smart money has Davis tailing off the second half. So Tigers fans (and really baseball fans) can hope this is just a day-to-day thing.  The postseason wouldn’t be the same with the Tigers shorthanded. - David Whitlock (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter @rbts_baseball A proud partner in the Sports-Kings (@realsportskings) network The post Miguel Cabrera leaves game with apparent leg injury appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
