Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs on Friday, leading the Tigers to a 7-5 victory over the White Sox in Chicago.
Cabrera delivered a two-out, two-run single in the seventh inning that broke a 5-5 tie and stood as the difference in the ballgame.

Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a single and a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Cabrera just couldn't manage to square up R.A. Dickey. He was the lone Tiger to strike out more than once. Sunday's off game aside, Miggy remains one of the most consistent hitters on the fantasy landscape and enters the break hitting to a .293/.370/.507 triple-slash with 18 homers and 53 RBI. Cabrera has posted more explosive offensive campaigns, but even a relatively quiet season by Miguel Cabrera would count as a career-year for most other players.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a strikeout as the Tigers were shut out by the Blue Jays on Friday.

The Tigers were unable to crack the puzzle that was J.A. Happ on Friday, mustering just seven hits in the ballgame. Cabrera was the only Tiger to reach base twice. He's now slashing .296/.375/.515 with 18 homers and 53 RBI on the season.
Jul 8 - 10:31 PM

Miguel Cabrera was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Indians.

That may have been as fired up as Cabrera has been on a baseball field, and rightfully so. He hit a ball off of his front leg, that rolled to third base, where he was retired on a throw to first. The umpire crew got together to discuss, but didn't review the play, and the out call stood, infuriating Cabrera.
Jul 5 - 9:07 PM

Miguel Cabrera is not in the Tigers starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Rays.

He'll get a day of rest in a premium matchup against opposing left-hander Blake Snell. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start in his place at first base and bat sixth for the Tigers on Saturday.
Jul 2 - 12:15 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and three total RBI in Wednesday's win over the Marlins.

Cabrera picked up RBI singles in the second and eighth innings, sandwiching a third-inning solo homer in-between for good measure. The veteran slugger is posting typically lovely production in 2016 and boasts a .301/.375/.542 triple-slash with 18 homers and 51 RBI across 299 at-bats. He has homered in back-to-back games, driving in three runs in each of those contests.
Jun 29 - 5:02 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's win over the Mariners.

The home run only counted for two, but Miggy earned some style points with the shot. He hit a Nate Karns pitch to left-center that cleared the bushes at Comerica Park, a bomb estimated at 454 feet by MLB.com's Statcast. The homer was his 15th of the season, giving him 43 RBI and 40 runs scored. The talented first baseman is hitting .309/.382/.543 in another strong campaign.

Miguel Cabrera slugged his 14th home run as the Tigers were slaughtered by the Royals on Friday.

The Tigers had been shut out through the first eight frames until Cabrera's solo shot off Dillon Gee in the ninth inning prevented a shutout. He also added a pair of singles in the contest, finishing the day 3-for-4. The 33-year-old is having another terrific season, slashing .306/.379/.539 with 14 homers and 40 RBI.
Jun 17 - 11:48 PM

Miguel Cabrera finished 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Cabrera doubled twice in the game, giving him four doubles in his last three games and 16 on the year. Cabrera is hitting .305/.379/.524 with 12 home runs, 37 RBI and 37 runs scored this season, looking determined to prove that last season was merely a blip on the radar and not a sign of things to come for the 33-year-old.
Jun 15 - 12:06 AM

Miguel Cabrera had a rare off-night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Yankees, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Cabrera and the rest of the Tigers offense were completely baffled by left-hander C.C. Sabathia, totaling just six hits and zero runs in the contest. Cabrera is in the midst of another nice season, slashing .298/.371/.518 with 12 homers and 36 RBI.
Jun 10 - 10:35 PM

Miguel Cabrera (back) went 1-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Cabrera had to exit Friday's game with lower back tightness, but he's fine. He's sporting a .308/.383/.538 batting line on the season.
Jun 5 - 8:11 AM

Miguel Cabrera was forced to leave Friday's game against the White Sox due to lower back tightness.

Cabrera seemed to tweak his back while leaning away from an inside pitch during his at-bat in the seventh inning. He has proven to be a warrior in the past and willing to play through most injuries, so expect that he'll be back in there against Chris Sale on Saturday.
Jun 3 - 10:02 PM

Miguel Cabrera was removed from Friday's game against the White Sox in the seventh inning due to an apparent injury.

Cabrera delivered an RBI single in the frame, but was running gingerly around the bases when the team trainer came out to get him. Expect an update from the club on his status shortly.
Jun 3 - 9:52 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

He also grounded out against Aroldis Chapman with a runner on third base and two outs in the ninth inning, an unfortunate time to pick up his first out of the evening. The multi-hit game was his first since May 23, a somewhat surprising stretch for the all-everything hitter. It hasn't done much to affect his bottom line, as Cabrera is batting a healthy .310/.385/.550 in 53 games this year.
Jun 3 - 1:17 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-3 with a pair of solo homers in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Cabrera's dingers in the third and fifth innings both tied the game at the time, and he scored the winning run on a Victor Martinez RBI single in the seventh. Miggy's slow start to the season seems like a distant memory. He's now batting .515 with seven home runs over his last nine games.
