From beat writer Tom Gage of the Detroit News comes word that Miguel Cabrera is being held out of the Tigers’ starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon’s series-finale against the Nationals.

Cabrera left Tuesday’s game after aggravating his sore hip flexor while charging in on a groundball.

Ramon Santiago will start at third base and Matt Tuiasosopo will bat third for 60-45 Detroit.

Cabrera is considered day-to-day for now. He missed four straight games last week with the same injury. The 30-year-old is batting .359/.454/.668 with 32 home runs and 99 RBI in 100 games this season.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
