The Detroit Tigers placed slugger Miguel Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list on Saturday.

Cabrera exited Friday's game, a 6-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins, with a right groin sprain.

Prior to the decision, manager Brad Ausmus said Cabrera was undergoing an MRI.

Per MLB.com:

Cabrera has had groin problems before, though not recently. He underwent core muscle surgery after the 2013 season to repair what was essentially a groin tear that he played through for most of the stretch run that year.

Cabrera went 3-for-3 before leaving the loss to the Twins. He is hitting .268 with three home runs and 9 RBI.
