DETROIT (AP) - Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera is back in Detroit’s lineup after missing four games because of an injured left hip.
The reigning Triple Crown winner is batting third and playing third base for Saturday night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies. He’s hitting a major league-best .358 with 31 home runs and 96 RBIs.
Detroit outfielder Torii Hunter is also back after sitting out Friday night’s game against Philadelphia. Hunter left Thursday’s game against the Chicago White Sox in the eighth inning because of a sore left Achilles tendon. He said the problem was caused by dress shoes that were too tight.
