Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

The White Sox did not pick up their first hit until the seventh inning, when Alex Avila picked up a single. Cabrera would come through later in the inning with an RBI knock to put the Tigers on the board. The game itself was not in doubt, as even with that hit, Detroit still trailed 7-1. Cabrera has yet to get on any sort of a prolonged hot streak and is slashing a relatively unremarkable .257/.361/.412 with five homers and 19 RBI for the season as a whole.
May 28 - 5:42 PM

Miguel Cabrera is not in the Tigers' lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

Ian Kinsler isn't starting, either, as the Tigers have Alex Avila at first base, Andrew Romine at second base, John Hicks catching and Jose Iglesias in the leadoff spot. Both Cabrera and Kinsler figure to be back in there for the nightcap.

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the Tigers fell to the Rangers in Sunday's series finale at Comerica Park.

Cabrera's RBI single off of Yu Darvish pulled the Tigers even at 2-2 in the second inning, but that would be the extent of their offense. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .265/.352/.442 with five homers and 18 RBI on the season.
May 21 - 11:47 PM

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

Tigers' manager Brad Ausmus said after Friday's game that Cabrera would be in the lineup on Saturday. The slugger hasn't played since Tuesday due to a Grade 1 oblique strain. He's serving as the designated hitter while Alex Avila starts at first base.
May 20 - 3:43 PM

Tigers' manager Brad Ausmus said after Friday's game that he expects Miguel Cabrera (oblique) to play on Saturday.

Cabrera was able to swing a bat without issue prior to Friday's game and was available to pinch-hit. He hasn't played since Tuesday due to a Grade 1 oblique strain.
May 19 - 11:10 PM

Miguel Cabrera (oblique) is hoping to take batting practice Friday.

If he's able to and he feels alright, Cabrera thinks he might be ready to return to the Tigers' lineup as soon as Saturday. The Tigers' slugger hasn't played since Tuesday because of a Grade 1 oblique strain.
May 19 - 4:24 PM

Miguel Cabrera (oblique) remained out of the Tigers' lineup Friday.

Cabrera has a Grade 1 oblique strain and hasn't played since Tuesday. He could return at some point over the weekend, but it's not a guarantee. Alex Avila is at first base and also batting cleanup Friday.
May 19 - 3:34 PM

Miguel Cabrera (oblique) is out of the Tigers' starting lineup on Thursday.

Cabrera was diagnosed Wednesday with a Grade 1 oblique strain, though Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he expects the slugger to miss only 2-3 days. Andrew Romine is starting at first base and batting eighth Thursday versus Orioles right-hander Dylan Bundy.
May 18 - 10:07 AM

Miguel Cabrera has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 oblique strain.

Cabrera was a late scratch from the lineup prior to Wednesday's game against the Orioles. Per manager Brad Ausmus, this minor oblique strain is expected to keep the veteran slugger sidelined for the next 2-3 days. If that turns out to be the case, the Tigers dodged a bullet here. Oblique injuries can often take weeks of rehab to work through.
May 17 - 11:09 PM

Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles due to a sore left side.

Cabrera will undergo further testing and will be reevaluated on Thursday. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Alex Avila is starting at first base in the veteran slugger's place and will hit sixth in Wednesday's game.
May 17 - 7:12 PM

Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch from the lineup in advance of Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

The Tigers did not give a reason for Cabrera's late scratch, but if there is an injury, the team should pass along word in the coming hours. This could also be a simple rest day -- Cabrera has largely been struggling at the plate this season. Alex Avila draws the start at first base for Wednesday's game and will hit sixth.
May 17 - 6:52 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

Rough four-game weekend set for Cabrera, who went 2-for-17 with five strikeouts against Angels pitching. The slugger has been mostly quiet with the bat this season even beyond the recent sample, as he is hitting just .238/.319/.396 with four homers and 14 RBI across 101 at-bats. Fantasy owners should continue to exercise patience, here. So long as Cabrera can stay healthy, the numbers should be there at the end of the season.
May 14 - 6:56 PM

Miguel Cabrera (groin) is starting at first base and batting third Wednesday against the Indians.

Cabrera left Tuesday's game in the eighth inning after experiencing renewed tightness in his right groin, but the cold weather in Detroit was mostly to blame for that. He slugged a two-run homer in the bottom of the third.
May 3 - 3:31 PM

Miguel Cabrera said his right groin tightened up on him Tuesday night against the Indians.

That's why he left in the eighth inning, after slugging a two-run homer in the bottom of the third. Cabrera just spent 10 days on the disabled list with a right groin strain and is questionable for Wednesday's game. The veteran first baseman will be reevaluated in the morning.
