Cabrera out due to Shoulder

Cabrera missed last night's due to aches and pains.  Or at least that is what is being reported.

Marlins third baseman Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup because of what a team spokesman said was a sore left shoulder.

The announcement was made about 30 minutes before the first pitch, but no further information was provided.


Manager Joe Girardi said after Wednesday's game that the shoulder has been bothering Cabrera and that he might have slept on it improperly Tuesday night.

Cabrera listed as day-to-day.

Joe isn't the best diagnostician on the planet, as he has proven a few times this year.  But this doesn't sound like it is much to worry about at this point.  

The usual caveat: there is no need to rush him back in the lineup until he is healthy.
