Cabrera has enjoyed a fair amount of success against right-hander Anibal Sanchez, Friday's starter for Detroit, with 10 hits in 21 at-bats, although none of those hits has gone for extra bases.

Cabrera's X-rays on his injured right elbow came back negative,'s Gregor Chisholm reports.

Cabrera was hit in the elbow with a Miguel Gonzalez pitch earlier in the contest, which eventually triggered his removal. It looks like he avoided any serious damage, however, as he's more than likely just dealing with a contusion. Consider the outfielder day-to-day.
