Cabrera appeared to suffer the injury while starting out of the box after hitting a sixth-inning single. He was lifted for pinch-runner Don Kelly, who also replaced Cabrera at first base.
Last season, Cabrera dealt with semi-serious left groin and hip problems, but there's no indication that this is any kind of recurrence.
Cabrera, 31, has been afire in recent weeks after a slow start to 2014. The two-time reigning AL MVP is now batting a more customary .326/.377/.564 with 11 home runs and 21 doubles.
