Miguel Cabrera (biceps) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

Cabrera made an early exit from Monday's series opener against the Royals with a left biceps strain and he was held out of Tuesday's game. Maybe he should have taken one more day off. The veteran slugger is slashing .307/.381/.545 with 27 home runs and 77 RBI in 118 games this season for Detroit.

Miguel Cabrera (biceps) is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Royals.

Cabrera made an early exit from Monday's game due to a left biceps strain. It's not considered serious, but the Tigers aren't going to rush him back into the lineup. Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start in his place at first base.
Aug 16 - 3:37 PM

Miguel Cabrera is day-to-day with a left biceps strain.

Cabrera was forced to make an early exit from Monday's game after four innings and now we know why. It doesn't sound like a long-term issue, we should know more on Tuesday.

Miguel Cabrera exited Monday's game against the Royals after four innings with an apparent injury.

Well, that's no good. The exact reason for his exit isn't yet clear, but Jarrod Saltalamacchia replaced Cabrera at first base to begin the fifth inning. The Tigers should pass along an update soon.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI to help the Tigers edge the Mets 6-5 on Saturday.

Cabrera hit an RBI double in the first inning, but it was his two-run single in the fourth that gave the Tigers the cushion that they would need to hold off the Mets' late rally. Cabrera now has 17 RBI in his last 10 games and 74 RBI on the year. The 33-year-old is hitting a robust .311/.385/.552 with 25 homers and 64 runs scored overall.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 and hit his 25th homer Thursday against the White Sox.

It's the 12th time in his career that Cabrera has reached 25 homers. When he hit just 18 in 119 games last season, it marked the first time since his rookie campaign that he didn't get to 25.
Aug 4 - 4:39 PM

Miguel Cabrera's bat remained hot Tuesday, as he went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in a win over the White Sox.

The dinger came off of reliever Matt Albers in the sixth inning. Cabrera has now gone deep six times over his last 11 games and is suddenly on pace to hit 37 home runs. Oh, and he's also batting .306/.384/.544. The rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated.
Aug 2 - 10:55 PM

Miguel Cabrera crushed a pair of home runs and finished with four total RBI in Sunday's 11-0 win over the Astros.

Cabrera started out his fireworks display with an RBI single in the first inning. He would follow that up with a solo home run in the fifth and a two-run tater in the seventh. The two homers pushed his season-total to 23 and boosted his RBI tally to 66. In addition, he holds a .303/.381/.533 triple-slash over 390 at-bats. Even at age 33, he remains one of the most consistent fantasy performers in the game.
Jul 31 - 4:38 PM

Miguel Cabrera launched a go-ahead solo homer in the top of the ninth inning to push the Tigers past the Red Sox 4-3 on Wednesday afternoon in Boston.

Cabrera pounced on Brad Ziegler with two outs in the top of the ninth to snap a 3-3 tie and secure a three-game sweep for the visiting Tigers. It was Cabrera's 21st home run of the season and the 14th go-ahead homer in the ninth inning or later in his 14-year major league career. Cabrera also had two singles in Wednesday's victory and he's now slashing .301/.382/.522 over 101 games this season.

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. The first run that scored on that play gave the veteran slugger 1500 RBI for his big league career, a milestone that has only been achieved by 55 other players in MLB history. Even though he has slumped as of late, Cabrera is still hitting .300/.376/.515 with 19 homers and 56 RBI on the year.
Jul 23 - 12:45 AM

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.
Jul 10 - 5:33 PM

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.
