Miguel Cabrera Has Right Ankle Sprain

Good news. X-rays were negative on Miguel Cabrera's right ankle and it is just a sprain. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow when I'm sure we'll have a better idea of a timetable for his return (if he'll even return with only a week left in the season). 

Cabrera left in the 7th inning when he turned his ankle retreating to first base. It looked pretty bad and he wasn't putting any weight on the ankle as he limped off the field. If Cabrera doesn't play another game this season it may hurt his MVP case, as Josh Hamilton's injury was said to be hurting his in favor of Cabrera. The numbers Cabrera has put upthus far are pretty hard to argue against, though.
