Jose CarbreraIf you were awake during Tuesday's All-Star Game you may have heard Miguel Cabrera was pulled from the game with a mild oblique strain. How mild? Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Cabrera will be in the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

He wasn't so sure Tuesday when he heard Cabrera had left the game. At home, Leyland made a call "right away" to check on his slugger.

"That sends a red flag up, even when you're home relaxing," Leyland told Chris Iott of MLive.com. "That has a tendency to ruin your vacation in a hurry. I got a little nervous."

For good reason. Cabrera is hitting .311/.430/.549 with 18 home runs and 59 RBI this season and has finished in the top four of the MVP voting each of the last two seasons.
