Miguel Cabrera Scratched From Lineup

From Graham Couch of the Kalamazoo Gazette:

Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera has been pulled from the lineup for tonight's game against Seattle with what is being described as lower back tightness.

A Tigers spokesperson made the announcement at 5:40 p.m., about 20 minutes after the team finished batting practice.

Jason Beck reports that Cabrera was moving around in the clubhouse following batting practice, so the injury "doesn't appear major." Let's hope he's right.
