DETROIT -

Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera will be in the lineup against the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.

Cabrera left Thursday's 7-6 win over the Oakland Athletics after hurting his abdomen while making an awkward slide trying to stretch a single into a double in the fifth inning.

"He's ready to go," Detroit manager Jim Leyland said before Friday's game. "I checked with him."

After becoming the first player to win the Triple Crown in 45 years last season, Cabrera is in position to do it again this year.

Cabrera leads the majors with a .359 average and 130 RBIs. His 43 home runs put him four behind Baltimore's Chris Davis.
