Tigers put Cabrera on 10-day DL with strained right groin

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Detroit Tigers placed first baseman Miguel Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right groin.

Cabrera was injured while diving for a ground ball in the sixth inning of the Tigers' game against the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. The 34-year-old slugger is hitting .268 with three home runs and nine RBIs this season.

To fill his spot on the roster, the Tigers recalled catcher John Hicks from Triple-A Toledo. Hicks has hit .424 in 10 games with the Mud Hens.
