Manager Brad Ausmus indicated Monday that Cabrera's ankle has been causing him minor issues over the last few days, and it played into the decision to rest him Monday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Cabrera underwent offseason surgery to repair his bothersome right ankle, so it's quite possible he's just suffering from some minor soreness. While he'll likely rejoin the lineup soon, the situation is worth monitoring over the next couple days.

Cabrera is out of the lineup Monday against the Athletics.

Cabrera's absence appears to be just a planned day of rest following a long string of starts at first base. He rides a 12-game hitting streak into his day of rest, but Hernan Perez will replace him in the lineup Monday, batting eighth.

Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a double, home run and one RBI in Sunday's 10-8 loss to the Astros.

He's third in RBI (32) in baseball and his slash line of .344/.446/.614 is MVP-worthy. He's one of the best in the game, but it's still just May.

Cabrera hit his 400th career home run in Saturday's 10-inning win over the Cardinals. He powered it over the center field wall in the first inning; 262 of his homers have come with the Tigers.

He has hit four homers in three games and 10 overall this season. More impressively, he turned a great double play late in the game to keep his team in the hunt for the win. He finished 1-for-5.

Cabrera continued to rake Friday night, going 3-for-5 with a two run homer and two runs scored in the 10-4 win over the Cardinals.

This is now six hits and three home runs in just the last two games for Cabrera. Cabrera is right back into MVP form as he is hitting .338 with nine home runs and 28 RBI on the season with an incredible .442 OBP.

Cabrera powered Thursday's rout of the Twins by going 3-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI and three runs scored.

Miggy hadn't gone yard since May 3 and had been in a 4-for-27 slide, but he had a field day in this one. With eight homers to his credit now, he's on pace to hit the mid-30s, which would be more Miggy-like than the relatively modest 25 he slugged last year.

Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Royals.

Cabrera had a big day on Sunday as the Tigers picked up the win in Kansas City. He now holds a line of .366/.459/.624 which is nothing new for the superstar slugger. The home run marked his sixth of the season and barring any injury, we should see him in the 30-plus homer range once again this year.

Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double, two homers and four RBI in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.

Miggy's numbers have been strong, but like last year, his homers had been lagging a little -- in fact, he hadn't hit one against any team but the Indians 'til Wednesday. Now he's up to five on the year, and he's racked up 17 RBI in just 22 games. As usual, he's an elite fantasy option.

Cabrera homered and drove in three runs Sunday against Cleveland. He has three homers this season, all of which have come against the Indians, and nine of his 13 RBI are against Cleveland.

He pounded a two-run homer 365 ft to deep right field and then hit a sac fly to right again to drive in the third RBI. He may be a Cleveland killer, but he's batting .377 overall.

Cabrera went 4-for-4 with his first two homers of the season, a double and single in Sunday's win over Cleveland. He had 11 hits in the three-game series sweep and put up back-to-back four-hit games for the first time in his career.

Off season surgeries? Hah! He has hit .520 with eight RBIs and a 1.426 OPS in the first week of the season. He's clearly seeing and hitting the ball really well right now, but just don't expect this kind of continuous production. Those numbers are just downright freaky. But he will settle into an MVP-like groove.
