Detroit's third baseman Miguel Cabrera is back out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Boston Red Sox.
The reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner had missed three straight games with what the team called a strained abdomen, but he returned for Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Boston and went 0 for 4.
Manager Jim Leyland told reporters ''he's a little sore'' before the lineup was posted in the locker room.
Cabrera leads the majors with a .355 average with 130 RBIs. He has 43 homers, four behind the Orioles' Chris Davis.
Don Kelly is scheduled to play third and bat sixth.
