Miguel Cabrera collected four hits Wednesday in the Tigers’ win over Pittsburgh.

Cabrera provided four of Detroit’s 20 hits in a 13-10 slugfest. His afternoon included a single, three doubles, three runs scored and two RBI. Cabrera has erupted over his last seven games, batting .520 with seven RBI during that span. His .329 average for the year ranks 10th-best in the American League.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's defeat of the Royals.

He drove in a run the easy way by walking with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, then plated two more runners with a single in the seventh. Miggy's stats took a tumble last year as he played through multiple nagging injuries but this year he is bouncing back. He will likely never be an MVP candidate again now that he is 35 years old and not exactly in the best of shape of his life. He has a .299 batting average with two homers, 13 RBI and eight runs scored in 79 plate appearances.

Miguel Cabrera cranked his second home run of the year Wednesday in the Tigers’ win over the Orioles.

It was part of a two-hit day for Cabrera, who doubled in the first inning before mashing a solo blast to left field in the sixth. Both hits came off Orioles hurler Kevin Gausman. Cabrera hasn’t been overly impressive in the early going, though Wednesday marked his second multi-hit game in his last three contests. His average has shot up 28 points (.227 to .255) during that span.

Miguel Cabrera (back) is in the Tigers' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Orioles.

Cabrera left Tuesday's game in the ninth inning because of back tightness, but Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said that move was simply precautionary on a cold night in Baltimore. The veteran slugger is starting at first base and batting third Wednesday versus Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman.

Miguel Cabrera (back) is expected to play Wednesday.

Cabrera left Tuesday's game against the Orioles in the top of the ninth inning after experiencing some lower back tightness, but Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said after the game that the move was precautionary on a cold night in Baltimore. Cabrera finished 0-for-2 with two walks in a 4-2 win for Detroit. He's batting .235/.322/.353 with one home run and nine RBI in 14 games this season.

Miguel Cabrera left Tuesday night's game against the Orioles with lower back tightness.

Cabrera was 0-for-2 with two walks before giving way to Niko Goodrum at first base in the top of the ninth inning. Detroit was up 4-2 over Baltimore at the time, with just three outs to get, so the removal might have been precautionary. Consider the veteran slugger day-to-day for now.
Apr 17 - 9:23 PM

Miguel Cabrera drove in the only run of the game on Sunday in the Tigers' 1-0 victory over the White Sox.

The RBI came on a sacrifice fly that scored Leonys Martin in the first inning. Cabrera already has driven in nine on the season, and while the sample size is relatively small, he looks like he's well on his way from rebounding from his struggles in 2017.
Apr 8 - 5:37 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run single and three total RBI in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Cabrera worked a two-run single off Lucas Giolito in the third inning and later notched an RBI groundout in the fifth. While the veteran slugger has just one home run to date, he's done sharp work on the whole, slashing .308/.400/.538 with four extra-base hits and eight RBI over the course of 26 at-bats. If Cabrera can stay healthy, don't put it past him to have something of a turn-back-the-clock season following an uninspiring 2017 campaign.
Apr 7 - 6:39 PM

Miguel Cabrera (hip) returned to the Tigers' starting lineup on Saturday.

He left Thursday's game after tweaking his hip while rounding first base, but the off day on Friday appears to have done him some good. He's back in his customary third spot in the Tigers' lineup against Lucas Giolito and the White Sox on Saturday afternoon in Chicago.
Apr 7 - 11:02 AM

Miguel Cabrera (hip) is hoping to be back in the Tigers' lineup Saturday.

Cabrera tweaked his left hip flexor when he stumbled around first base following a single Thursday and was eventually removed from the game. He said after the contest that he was "feeling better" and he's hoping not to miss any starts after Friday's off day. Cabrera is batting .318/.400/.591 in the early going this season.
Apr 6 - 10:22 AM

Miguel Cabrera left Thursday's game against the White Sox with left hip flexor tightness.

He took a tumble after singling in the first inning and was soon replaced by Niko Goodrum at first base. Cabrera has hit well in the early going, batting .318 with a homer and five RBI through his first 22 at-bats. Until the Tigers update his status, consider the former Triple Crown winner day-to-day.
Apr 5 - 4:58 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a loss to the Pirates in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.

This is the game we've been waiting to see from Cabrera. The homer was an opposite-field solo shot off hard-throwing Chad Kuhl, showcasing the kind of power that some weren't sure would come back after a disappointing 2017 season. He's now got four extra-base hits in his first three games. Those who took a shot on the discounted former MVP this spring are celebrating after the first series of the season.
Apr 1 - 10:38 PM

Miguel Cabrera reached base three times in an extra-innings loss to the Pirates on Friday.

The big hit for Miggy was a two-run double in the seventh inning that tied the game at 4-4. Cabrera is coming off easily his worst season as a professional, and the chances of him being the player we saw win two MVP awards because of his offensive prowess are slim and none. That being said, Cabrera is only 34-years-old, and there's still reason to believe he can be among the better first baseman in the American League. If he's on your roster, you should probably have a backup plan just in case.
Mar 30 - 6:55 PM

Miguel Cabrera belted his third Grapefruit League home run Sunday in the Tigers' 10-3 defeat of the Braves.

Cabrera contributed an RBI single to the Tigers' six-run second inning and added a solo bomb in the bottom of the fourth. The veteran slugger has produced a .352 batting average and .976 OPS this spring, and yet he remains a value in most mixed fantasy league drafts. He looks to be in much better shape than he was a year ago.
