Miguel Cabrera out with groin injury

DETROIT -- Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was out of the starting lineup for Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox after leaving the previous night's game with groin soreness.

Manager Jim Leyland says he's concerned about Cabrera, who is finishing up a spectacular season at the plate but has been bothered by a number of nagging injuries over the last couple months.

Cabrera said he hopes he can play Monday.

Cabrera is hitting .349 with 44 home runs and 136 RBIs.

Cabrera had three hits and a walk Saturday, so he's still a threat at the plate, but he's labored quite a bit on the basepaths.
