BBTN: How Miguel Cabrera's injury impacts Tigers

Baseball Tonight Minute: The Baseball Tonight crew discusses Miguel Cabrera's left calf strain and when he could return to the Tigers.

The Detroit Tigers placed two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list for the first time in his career Saturday.

The first baseman left Friday night's 8-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in the fourth inning when he strained his left calf while breaking for second base on an attempted hit-and-run.

Cabrera had an MRI, which showed no injury to his Achilles tendon. 

"I can't sit here and say we'll be fine, because he's the best hitter in baseball, at least in my eyes," Tigers right fielder J.D. Martinez said after Friday's game. "But if you look at our lineup, we've still got a lot of weapons."

Since his first full season in the majors in 2004, no one in baseball has appeared in more games than Cabrera. From 2004 to '14, he averaged 157 games per season and played fewer than 157 games once -- 2013 (148 games).

Cabrera's calf injury overshadowed Anibal Sanchez's no-hit bid for the Tigers, which was broken up when former Detroit teammate Ezequiel Carrera lined a single to left with one out in the eighth inning. Cabrera was on first base with no outs in the fourth inning and a 3-2 count to Victor Martinez, and took off with the pitch. Martinez fouled the ball off, but Cabrera pulled up sharply, grabbing his left leg. He was attended to by trainers and limped off the field.
