Cabrera out of lineup for Tigers vs. Twins

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.
