DETROIT — Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera left a game against the Kansas City Royals with a left biceps strain.

In the first inning Monday, pitcher Daniel Norris threw wildly to first and Cabrera collided with Cheslor Cuthbert while trying to catch the errant throw. He didn’t show any immediate signs of distress but was grimacing during both of his at-bats.

He flew out to deep center field in the fourth, still looking uncomfortable, and was replaced at first base by Jarrod Saltalamacchia for the fifth.

Cabrera is hitting .310 this season with 27 homers and 77 RBIs.

The Tigers said Cabrera is day-to-day.
