MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Miguel Cabrera did not start for the Tigers on Sunday after he aggravated a sore right ankle in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.
"He had a little soreness coming in, but as Miggy has shown he can play through a bit of soreness," manager Brad Ausmus said.
Cabrera appeared to tweak the ankle when he awkwardly stepped on first base. Detroit is off Monday before opening a three-game home series with the New York Yankees.
"The idea of having two days off in a row should help," Ausmus said.
Don Kelly is starting at first base for the Tigers.
