Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera re-aggravated his right ankle after sliding into home plate during Wednesday’s 6-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

According to MLive.com, the injury is considered minor and he won’t miss any time for now because of it. 

Cabrera slid into home plate, scoring on a double to right field by designated hitter Victor Martinez in the first inning after reaching on an infield single.
