Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols sit out with injuries

CBSSports.com wire reports

DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels are each sitting a star in the hopes of keeping them healthy for rest of the season.

Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols were not in the lineup because of injuries Sunday in the Angels-Tigers series finale.

Both teams are off Monday.

Cabrera played in Detroit's first 126 games this season. The third baseman has a sore right ankle that limited him to being a designated hitter on Friday and Saturday. Tigers manager Jim Leyland says what's best for Cabrera is best for the team.

Pujols hasn't played since Wednesday when he left a game against Boston in the fourth inning with tightness in his right calf. Pujols says he's feeling better, but the team wanted to give him another day off.
