Miguel Cabrera went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Thursday's loss to the Angels.
Cabrera was shut down by Angels starter Matt Shoemaker. The 0-for-3 snapped his 11-game hitting streak. The slugger missed a month-and-a-half with a calf injury, but when healthy, he's been the same ol' terrifying hitter we're accustomed to seeing. He's slashing .367/.469/.606 with 17 bombs and 65 RBI over 327 at-bats. Aug 27 - 4:01 PM

Miguel Cabrera walked and hit a two-run home run in four trips to the plate as the Tigers rolled to a win over the Angels on Wednesday.

Cabrera made it a 3-0 game in the bottom of the fifth when he sent a Hector Santiago offering over the fence in left-center for a two-run homer. He's hit safely in 11 straight games following a hitless return from the disabled list. His .370/.473/.611 triple-slash line has somehow flown under the radar. Cabrera has also hit 17 home runs while knocking in 65 runs.

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI but the Tigers fell short to the Angels on Tuesday.

Cabrera brought in three runs with a double and later scored in the third inning, helping erase a four-run deficit. The Tigers' pitching wasn't able to take advantage, however. Cabrera is white hot right now as he's on a 10-game hitting streak of which nine are of the multi-hit variety. He has an incredible .371/.473/.604 triple-slash line with 16 home runs and 63 RBI despite losing over a month to injury.

Miguel Cabrera had a nice night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Rangers, going 3-for-4 with three doubles.

He has been on an absolute tear since his return from the disabled list, hitting .500 (13-for-26) with a homer, six doubles, five RBI and eight walks. He's now slashing a robust .361/.470/.596 on the year with 16 homers and 59 RBI.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored against the Rangers on Thursday.

Cabrera is 10-for-22 with eight walks in six games since coming off the disabled list. One has to wonder if both David Price and Yoenis Cespedes would still be Tigers right now if he hadn't gone down with the calf injury.
Aug 20 - 10:23 PM

Miguel Cabrera will serve as the designated hitter Thursday against the Rangers.

It's a way to give him a bit of a breather. Victor Martinez will fill in at first base.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, an RBI double and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Astros.

He's baaaaaaaack. Cabrera had been sidelined since July 3 with a calf injury, but the Tigers activated him on August 14. He went hit-less in his first game back before notching a pair of singles against the Astros on Saturday. Sunday, he shook the rust off completely with a deep RBI double in the first inning and a two-run homer in the seventh. He finished the afternoon with three RBI. For the year, Cabrera's hitting .352/.461/.585 with 16 homers and 57 RBI. Considering how much time he missed, it's a testament to his incredible offensive abilities that the counting stats don't look more diminished.

Tigers activated 1B Miguel Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Cabrera made it through a few strenuous workouts this week without a setback and is back in the Tigers' lineup without needing a rehab assignment. He figures to rest a little more than normal initially after missing six weeks of action, but obviously fantasy owners need to stick him back into their lineups immediately.
Aug 14 - 4:05 PM

Miguel Cabrera (calf) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Cabrera made it through another intensive workout Tuesday without issue and woke up Wednesday feeling fine. He probably won't play every day out of the gate, but Miggy is obviously capable of huge fantasy production even if he's only getting 4-5 starts per week. The veteran slugger has been on the disabled list since July 4 with a Grade 3 calf strain.
Aug 12 - 5:13 PM

Miguel Cabrera (calf) is not expected to go out on a rehab assignment before being activated from the disabled list.

Cabrera ran the bases and took batting practice Tuesday and could rejoin the Tigers as soon as this weekend. He'll have missed about six weeks of action by that time, but apparently the club doesn't think he needs to go to the minors for a few games to knock the rust off. "If I’m going to get hurt, Toledo, here, it doesn’t matter," Cabrera said.
Aug 12 - 9:54 AM

Miguel Cabrera (calf) ran the bases and took live batting practice without issue on Tuesday.

Another big step for the rehabbing slugger. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters after the workout that Cabrera could be activated as early as this weekend. He has been out since July 4 with a Grade 3 calf strain.
Aug 11 - 5:35 PM

Miguel Cabrera (calf) did some light running around the bases on Monday.

Cabrera didn't push the strained left calf during his light jog. He'll ramp up the running on Tuesday, plus participate in batting practice. The slugger was placed on the disabled list on July 4 with a Grade 3 calf strain. The Tigers have yet to decide whether he'll need a rehab assignment, but he could be back with the team later this week.
Aug 10 - 7:16 PM

Miguel Cabrera (calf) will run the bases on Tuesday.

It will be his first time doing so since going down with a Grade 3 left calf strain over a month ago. Cabrera will also take batting practice Tuesday as he prepares for a return perhaps before the end of the week. The Tigers haven't decided yet whether to send the slugger out on a short rehab assignment.
Aug 9 - 10:28 AM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Thursday that Miguel Cabrera (calf) is likely to be activated before August 19.

That's the end of the Tigers' next road trip and merely provides a time frame -- if all goes well, Cabrera should be activated around August 15. The slugger has been out since early July with a severe left calf strain. He's obviously capable of a huge, fantasy championship-deciding finish if his health cooperates.
Aug 6 - 10:59 AM

Miguel Cabrera (calf) did some agility drills on Friday.

He's also done some hitting over the last week. Obviously running will be the biggest test for Cabrera's strained left calf and it's unclear at this point when he might be cleared for that. The Tigers think the slugger will be ready for activation from the disabled list around August 15.
