Miguel Cabrera busted out of his slump in a big way Monday, going 4-for-4 with a pair of homers and four RBI in a win over the Athletics.
That's more like it. Cabrera entered the game batting just .206/.296/.302 over his first 17 games and was hitless in his last 13 at-bats, but he had no trouble squaring up Kendall Graveman. The slugger's longballs in the first and fifth innings both went to the opposite field. Cabrera is suddenly hitting a much more respectable .254/.333/.448 and has 10 RBI. Apr 25 - 10:01 PM

Justin Upton is also getting a breather, as the Tigers are resting their struggling sluggers. Andrew Romine is handling first base and Mike Aviles is in left field Sunday.
Apr 24 - 9:55 AM

Miguel Cabrera ripped his first homer of the season -- a solo shot -- in Friday's win over the Yankees.

Cabrera singled in a run in the first and then took Luis Cessa deep to the opposite field in the seventh. The slugger has picked up five hits in his first 13 at-bats of the season. Nick Castellanos also had a big day at the plate for the Tigers, going 4-for-4 with four singles.
Apr 8 - 5:48 PM

Miguel Cabrera hit his third homer of the spring Thursday off the Cardinals' Carlos Martinez.

Mar 17 - 4:16 PM

Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer off Vinnie Pestano to lead the Tigers past the Yankees 3-0 on Friday.

It was one of just two hits for the Tigers on the day. Cabrera walked in his other plate appearance. Her's 2-for-3 with three walks in his first three spring games. Cabrera has bettered a .300 average and a .900 OPS in every spring since 2009.
Mar 4 - 5:50 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that Miguel Cabrera is an option to play third base during the team's season opening two-game series against the Marlins.

The Tigers will be playing under National League rules during the series, so they won't be able to use Victor Martinez at designated hitter. The decision will ultimately come down to how V-Mart looks at first base during spring training.

Miguel Cabrera said Tuesday that this offseason was "the first time in three years I worked out normally."

"It was exciting for me," Cabrera added. The two-time MVP has battled a few ailments the last couple years, leading to still-great but un-Miggy-like numbers. He'll turn 33 in April and it's possible his best power days are behind him, but Cabrera is still among the best hitters in the game and being able to go through his normal offseason routine can't hurt.
Feb 23 - 5:05 PM

Miguel Cabrera is absent from the Tigers' lineup Sunday.

As expected, Cabrera is getting some extra rest after wrapping up the American League batting title. Jefry Marte is manning first base in his place.

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

Cabrera jumped on an Erik Johnson offering in the sixth inning, sending it deep into the Chicago night for a two-run homer. As manager Brad Ausmus has indicated that his veteran slugger would not play in Sunday's season finale, he finishes the 2015 season holding a .338/.440/.534 triple-slash with 18 homers and 76 RBI in 119 games. Saturday's home run was just the third Cabrera's logged in 42 post-All-Star Break contests.

Manager Brad Ausmus plans to sit Miguel Cabrera Sunday in the Tigers' season finale against the White Sox.

Cabrera began Saturday with the American League's highest batting average at .334. He's on his way to winning his fourth batting title in the last five seasons. After a down year in 2014, at least by his standards, Cabrera has firmly re-established himself as an early first-round pick in all fantasy formats.

Miguel Cabrera is out of the Tigers' lineup Wednesday.

He'll be day-to-day the rest of the way as the Tigers play out the string. It's just precautionary, and to protect Cabrera's standing in the AL batting title race.
Wed, Sep 30, 2015 04:36:00 PM

Miguel Cabrera is in the Tigers' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

But the veteran slugger is expected to get regular days off over the final week of the 2015 regular season. His status will warrant monitoring on a game-to-game basis.
Tue, Sep 29, 2015 04:22:00 PM

The Tigers plan to limit Miguel Cabrera's playing time for the rest of the week.

He's now qualified for the American League batting title and holds a big edge with his .336 mark, so the Tigers will get him some much-needed rest. Manager Brad Ausmus indicated that Cabrera will likely see just two more starts this week.
Tue, Sep 29, 2015 12:33:00 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 0-for-3 with a walk in his return to the Tigers starting lineup on Friday.

The 32-year-old slugger has been in a slump at the plate recently, and the back issue may be partially to blame. Still, he leads the American League with his .334 batting average and looks primed to win his fourth batting title in the past five seasons.
Sat, Sep 26, 2015 08:45:00 AM

Miguel Cabrera has been dealing with a back injury for a few days.

It doesn't appear to be anything to worry about, but it certainly could be contributing to Cabrera's slump at the plate. Cabrera is not in Wednesday's lineup and will get two days of rest when adding in Thursday's off day. The Tigers hope he'll be ready to go on Friday.
