Tigers give DH/1B Miguel Cabrera day off on Sunday

Detroit Tigers manager AJ Hinch gave designated hitter/first baseman Miguel Cabrera the day off Sunday against the visiting Cleveland Indians.Cabrera, in his 19th season, was nearly lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning Saturday when his “whole body” began cramping, Hinch said.”I was looking for a day off for him this homestand,” Hinch said Sunday. “It’s convenient, given he was a little bit sore coming out of yesterday, and I want to get everybody some playing time. A little bit of both, but nothing I’m concerned about at this point.”With Cabrera out, Robbie Grossman was in the starting lineup as the DH and Harold Castro was at first base as the Tigers attempt to sweep the season-opening, three-game series.
