Cabrera (ankle) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees.

Cabrera aggravated his right ankle last Thursday but didn't sit out until Sunday, which afforded him two days off due to Monday's scheduled off day. He'll attempt to extend his six-game hitting streak, during which he hit .304 (7-for-23) with three RBI, four runs, and five walks versus two strikeouts.

Manager Brad Ausums expects Cabrera (ankle) to be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Chris Iott of MLive.com reports.

Cabrera is out of the lineup Sunday due to an ankle issue, MLive.com's Chris Iott reports.

Cabrera irritated his ailing ankle in Saturday's game, but it doesn't sound like the Tigers are sounding the alarm on a lengthy absence. Instead, it seems manager Brad Ausmus just wanted to take advantage of Monday's open date in the schedule by keeping Cabrera out of the lineup Sunday, effectively giving him two full days of recovery. Cabrera should still be available off the bench in the series finale with the Twins if needed, while Don Kelly takes his spot in the field at first base.

Cabrera (ankle) is in Friday's lineup against the Twins.

He'll take is usual spot in the three hole, manning first base, after aggravating a right ankle injury sliding into home plate during Wednesday's game. It's nothing new for Cabrera to play through injury, but general manager Dave Dombrowski said Friday that he doesn't believe the ankle injury will affect Cabrera's power. Look for him to continue to play through any lingering pain going forward.

Cabrera re-aggravated a right ankle injury sliding into home plate during Wednesday's game, MLive Media Group reports.

It's only a minor issue, but the Tigers are being cautious with their star third-baseman as he'll serve as the DH on Thursday in Tampa Bay. Manager Brad Ausmus called the situation "a small concern," and Cabrera's status is something to keep an eye on over the next few days.

Cabrera went 3-for-5 with one RBI and one run scored Monday against the Pirates.

Cabrera played third base in Pittsburgh Monday as the Tigers played Victor Martinez at first base to keep his bat in the lineup. The position change will be brief for Cabrera and it clearly didn't impact him negatively at the plate Monday.

Cabrera is out of the Tigers' lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

With an early afternoon affair on tap for Thursday, manager Brad Ausmus will slot Don Kelly in at first base and give Cabrera a breather after 24 consecutive starts. It's just Cabrera's second day off this season, but the team could opt to rest him a bit more frequently down the stretch in an attempt to preserve his health for the postseason.
