Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer Wednesday in the loss to the Reds.

It was a difficult night for Cabrera in spite of the homer; he started shaking his left hand after a swing and a miss in the seventh and he later took a grounder off his nose in the 11th. He finished the game and showed no ill effects from the hand/wrist thing, so hopefully it was nothing.

Cabrera brought in the Tigers' first run with a first-inning single. He scored a run in the fourth inning after a single. In news that shocks no one, Cabrera continues to have fantastic offensive numbers, batting .330/.436/.565 with 12 home runs and 39 RBI.
Jun 9 - 10:18 PM

Miguel Cabrera clocked his 12th homer of the season in Saturday's 7-1 win over the White Sox.

Cabrera's two-run bomb off John Danks sparked a five-run fifth inning for the struggling Tigers. It would be his only hit of the game, as he finished 1-for-4. He also drew a walk in the contest. Barring an injury--he was dealing with a cranky ankle in late May--Cabrera should continue to post big numbers. He's currently hitting .325/.430/.567 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and 30 runs scored.
Jun 6 - 10:39 PM

He's been dealing with a balky ankle as of late, but the minor injury has done little to put a crimp in his numbers for the season. The slugger's hitting a typically stellar .333/.435/.569 with 11 homers, 36 RBI and 29 runs scored.
Jun 4 - 4:31 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that Miguel Cabrera has been dealing with a "cranky ankle."

That's part of the reason for his absence Monday, though Ausmus said it's only a minor thing. Cabrera should return to the Tigers' starting lineup on Tuesday night. Hernan Perez is starting at first base for Detroit in Monday's series opener at Oakland's Coliseum.
May 25 - 1:27 PM

Miguel Cabrera is not in the Tigers' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the A's.

May 24 - 4:45 PM

Cabrera also drew a walk in the contest. He has been on an absolute tear at the plate in recent weeks and now sports a .333/.436/.601 with 10 homers and 30 RBI. He remains arguably the best right-handed hitter in the game and an offensive force in fantasy leagues.
May 17 - 11:04 PM

It was the 399th home run of his career. Strangely, it was also his first home run in a night game this season. Cabrera has back-to-back three-hit games and owns a healthy .338/.442/.592 battling line on the year to go along with nine home runs and 28 RBI. He'll set his sights on career home run No. 400 this weekend.

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI in Thursday's 13-1 crushing of the Twins.

It was one of those games for Cabrera.

Graham. Cabrera's now hitting .328/.437/.568 with eight home runs, 26 RBI and 20 runs scored.
