DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera has left Detroit’s game Saturday night against the Chicago White Sox with back tightness.

Cabrera was replaced at the start of the fifth inning after going hitless in his two at-bats.

Cabrera was on the disabled list with groin problems earlier this year. He’s missed 24 games this season after appearing in 158 games in 2016.
