Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera was forced to leave Sunday night's game against the Red Sox (GameTracker) because of tightness in his left hamstring. The team announced that he's day-to-day.

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.
