Cabrera, for the second time this week, has exited a game due to what is now being called a left bicep tendonitis injury. "I can't get my swing right," said Cabrera, after leaving in Tuesday's 9-1 victory against the rival White Sox. One main reason a player might have trouble playing, hitting in particular, with bicep tendonitis: "Pain will especially be felt when you extend your arm out in front of you or raise your arm above your shoulder.

Cabrera said he first injured the shoulder diving for a ball during the Tigers' last homestand against the Royals. He's also told reporters that he's had the injury before and with rest, it quickly went away.

Additionally, Carlos Guillen is all but certain to end the 2010 campaign on the DL. He will be a free agent after this season.
