Cabrera returns with homer in Tigers' 5-2 win over Indians

Miguel Cabrera went from the disabled list to rounding the bases with the 450th home run of his career.

In the star slugger's first game since being sidelined, the Detroit Tigers weren't taking any chances with his health.

Cabrera was activated after missing the minimum of 10 days with a strained right groin. On a cold, damp night, he left Detroit's 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians for a defensive replacement after seven innings.

"His groin tightened up a little bit, so we played it cautious and got him out of there," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "We expect that he'll be fine."
