DETROIT -- There was a very good reason Miguel Cabrera was shaking his hand at times during his at-bats Thursday evening. His right pinky, which he jammed on a ground ball earlier in the week, was bothering him in the cold weather.

Still, Cabrera doesn't expect it to be a major issue moving forward. He has played through it so far and fared fine.

As impressive as Cabrera's hitting has been this season, his durability deserves some credit, especially at third base.
