Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera left Thursday's game with right ankle soreness.

Presswire

Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera left Thursday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the second inning with an ankle problem, according to multiple tweets, including the official team Twitter page.

Cabrera, who has also been dealing with left ankle soreness, was replaced by Ramon Santiago after the team trainer came out of the dugout with Tigers manager Jim Leyland. According to another report, Cabrera was seen wincing in pain running out a fly ball to end the first inning.

Cabrera fouled a ball off his left ankle 18 days ago but continued to play through the pain. The seven-time All-Star from Venezuela has played in 123 games this season after playing all but one regular-season game in 2011.

He has already equaled his RBI total from last season, 105, so the Tigers can't afford to lose Cabrera for a long stretch of time as they make a postseason push.
