TIGERS: Miguel Cabrera was back in the lineup as the designated hitter against the Chicago White Sox on Friday, one day after missing a 4-1 loss to Kansas City because of left quadriceps soreness.
Gary Sheffield was out of the lineup after tearing a tendon near the top of one of his fingers sliding headfirst into second trying to stretch a single Thursday. Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Sheffield should be able to play when the swelling on his finger subsides.
Leyland said Sheffield will wear a splint when he's not playing for six weeks and wear another kind of padding when he plays.
BLUE JAYS: Outfielder Alex Rios finalized a $64 million, six-year contract extension that runs through 2014, and second baseman Aaron Hill agreed to a $12 million, four-year deal.

Hampton will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 30. Lefty Jo-Jo Reyes will be called up from Triple-A Richmond and will be available today.
Braves manager Bobby Cox said he plans to activate left-hander Chuck James from the disabled list to take Hampton's spot in the rotation.
