Miguel Cabrera made an early exit from the second half of Saturday's doubleheader with the White Sox after appearing to aggravate his lingering right ankle injury.
It was overly ambitious of the Tigers to think that Cabrera -- who has been limping around for weeks -- could gut it out for both games. He looked to be in serious discomfort on a groundout in the top of the fourth inning and did not take the field for the bottom of the fourth. Cabrera can probably be considered day-to-day through the rest of 2014.
Daniel Hudson (elbow) will join the Diamondbacks as a reliever at some point early next week.
Hudson has undergone two Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgeries since early 2012 but is finally back to full health. He looked sharp on his most recent minor league rehab assignment and should do well in a long relief role for Arizona. It's a nice comeback story.
Dustin Pedroia left Saturday's game against the Rays with an apparent head injury.
Pedroia got struck in the face by Kevin Kiermaier's forearm on a collision at the second base bag in the bottom of the second inning. Brock Holt moved from third base to second base and Will Middlebrooks took over at the hot corner. The Red Sox should provide an update on Pedroia at some point Saturday night.
Brandon Belt (concussion) won't resume baseball-related activities for another 10 days.
Belt is beginning to feel much better, but he'll be limited to light cardio until he has a checkup with a doctor on September 8. The first baseman told reporters Saturday that he's confident he'll be able to return this season. It's probably going to be late-September.
Yadier Molina is in the Cardinals' lineup for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.
Molina, who just returned from a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb, sat out the first game.
