Miguel Cabrera (groin) worked out and rode a stationary bike on Tuesday.
The veteran slugger landed on the disabled list for just the second time in his career on Saturday after being diagnosed with a mild right groin strain. He's eligible to return May 2, in time for the second game of a big four-game set against the Indians. "Miggy said he feels real good today," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters Tuesday. "My guess is, it will be just the 10 days."
George Springer (hamstring) subbed into Tuesday's game against the Indians and finished 0-for-1.
Springer was called into action in right field after Teoscar Hernandez suffered an ugly-looking knee injury on a collision with teammate Jose Altuve. Springer should return fully to the starting lineup on Wednesday after battling through some mild left hamstring tightness.
Ryan Braun (foot) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Tuesday's rout of the Reds.
Braun was lifted from Monday's series opener versus Cincinnati after fouling a few balls off his foot, but he only suffered some mild bruises. Even after Tuesday night's 0-for-4, the veteran outfielder is slashing .282/.378/.592 through 20 games this season.
Buster Posey finished 2-for-3 with a walk and RBI in Tuesday's loss against the Dodgers.
Posey has hit safely in each of his seven games since returning from a concussion, although he has managed just one run scored and just one RBI. Nick Hundley made another start behind the dish Tuesday, although Posey did fill in at catcher in the later innings. Whether Posey is at first base or back behind the plate, as long as he is starting he is an obvious worthwhile fantasy option.
Drew Stubbs was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in Tuesday's loss against the Dodgers.
Stubbs is hitless in six at-bats since having his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday. He is filling in for Denard Span (shoulder), but the veteran looks a bit rusty and overmatched at the dish in his first helping against big-league pitching this season.
Ty Blach allowed two earned runs, four hits and a walk with two strikeouts over five innings in a loss Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Blach was taking the place of Madison Bumgarner (shoulder, ribs) in what would have been a marquee pitching matchup against Clayton Kershaw. Blach still ended up giving the home fans a treat in the 2-1 loss, throwing 47 of his 75 pitches for strikes. Manager Bruce Bochy announced Blach will fill in while MadBum is on the shelf and so far, so good. He even contributed a double with a run scored in two at-bats to look like Bumgarner in the offensive department, too.
Justin Turner finished 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's game at San Francisco.
The former CS Fullerton standout has hit safely in 11 straight dating back to April 12. Turner is hitting .345 overall on the season. While he has just one RBI over his past nine games and no extra-base hits over the past four outings, fantasy owners cannot complain too vehemently. Turner has just seven strikeouts in 71 at-bats while hitting for an extremely high average.
Kenley Jansen worked around two singles while recording four outs Tuesday at San Francisco for his fifth save of the season.
Jansen threw 15 of his 22 pitches for strikes in his first action since April 19. He has recorded four outs in each of his past three appearances as manager Dave Roberts bucks the usual trend of limiting his closer to just the ninth inning. It isn't affecting Jansen negatively, as he has worked 5 1/3 scoreless innings over his past five appearances and he is 5-for-5 on save chances this season.
