Cabrera (elbow) is in the lineup Friday against the Tigers, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The Orioles' Miguel Gonzalez hit Cabrera on the elbow with a pitch Thursday, prompting the Blue Jays to lift Cabrera from the game in the third inning. X-rays were negative, however, and he won't even miss a start as a result of the injury. 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, MLB.com'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.

Melky Cabrera went 1-for-5 and committed a game-ending error in left field Friday against the A's.

Derek Norris probably would have stopped at third had Cabrera picked up Nick Punto's double to left in the 12th, but the ball got by Melky, allowing the winning run to score. While Cabrera got off to a terrific start in April, he's been little more than an average regular the last couple of months, and it's only because he continues to bat second in the Toronto lineup that he's remained a top-30 fantasy outfielder. Fortunately, it doesn't look like he'll be dropped anytime soon.
