Miguel Cabrera launched a pair of home runs on Friday, powering the Tigers to a critically-important 6-2 victory over the Braves in Atlanta.
In a game that the Tigers absolutely needed to win, Cabrera and the rest of the Tigers' offense came through in a big way. Ian Kinsler started the game with a solo homer and two batters later Cabrera socked a two-run blast to give the Tigers an early 3-0 lead that they wouldn't relinquish. He added on a solo shot in the third inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with three runs scored and three RBI. He's now hitting .315/.394/.565 with 38 homers and 108 RBI in what has been another outstanding season. Sep 30 - 11:19 PM

Miguel Cabrera hammered a three-run homer in the final frame as the Tigers beat the Indians 6-3 in a rainy five inning game on Wednesday.

The umpires called the game as soon as it became a legal contest after five innings. Cabrera's blast in the bottom of the fifth was his 36th of the season. He stroked a single earlier in the game and finished 2-for-3. He is batting .313 with 105 RBI in yet another MVP-caliber season.

Miguel Cabrera fell a triple shy of the cycle and drove in five runs in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Miggy doubled in two runs in the first inning, launched a three-run homer in the second, was intentionally walked in the fourth and singled in the seventh. He was pulled after the seventh in the Tigers' blowout win, potentially costing him a shot at an unlikely triple and cycle. Cabrera's 35 home runs are easily his highest total since his MVP season in 2013.
Sep 27 - 10:37 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Cabrera doubled earlier in the game before swatting the two-run jack, his 34th of the season, in the seventh inning. The homer gave him 93 RBI and 84 runs scored with a handful of games left to play, giving him a shot at reaching the 100-run plateau for the 12th time in his career. The professional hitter is slashing .310/.387/.551 in 147 games overall.

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an RBI single in a win over the Twins on Wednesday.

He took reliever Ryan Pressly deep in the seventh inning to give the Tigers the lead. He is batting .310/.385/.550 with 33 homers and 91 RBI. He will be in the MVP conversation again this year as he is seemingly every year.
Sep 15 - 1:04 AM

Miguel Cabrera singled twice and slugged a pair of solo home runs in Monday's extra-innings win over the White Sox.

Cabrera homered to the opposite field off of Chris Sale in the first inning and got to Sale again in the third with a shot over the left field wall. The Tigers weren't able to dent the scoreboard otherwise until Justin Upton provided the deciding blow with a three-run homer in the 11th inning. Miggy has now returned to the 30-homer plateau after falling short each of the last two seasons.
Sep 5 - 8:24 PM

Miguel Cabrera homered and drove home four runs on Friday, leading the Tigers to a come-from-behind 7-6 victory over the Royals.

Cabrera blasted a mammoth home run over the fountain in center field in the seventh inning that had increased the Tigers' advantage to 5-3. They trailed by a run entering the ninth inning though, where Ian Kinsler singled and Jose Iglesias doubled before Cabrera came through with a two-run single off of Wade Davis to put the Tigers ahead to stay. He finished the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and is now slashing .312/.385/.547 with 29 homers and 85 RBI on the year.
Sep 3 - 12:26 AM

Miguel Cabrera is out of the Tigers' lineup Wednesday due to a right ankle flareup.

Cabrera experienced something similar last week in Minnesota and the Tigers don't want to make it any worse. He'll get a day of rest Wednesday and then the Tigers have a scheduled team off day Thursday before starting a series Friday night in Kansas City. That will hopefully get him back in good health. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is starting at first base and batting eighth Wednesday afternoon against White Sox ace Chris Sale.
Aug 31 - 10:40 AM

Miguel Cabrera is out of the Tigers' starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the White Sox.

It appears to be a routine day of rest for the veteran slugger. Jarrod Saltalamacchia is at first base and batting eighth versus White Sox left-hander Chris Sale.
Aug 31 - 10:03 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

The double was Cabrera's 27th of the season, but the Tigers just couldn't find any sort of sustained offensive punch against Tyler Skaggs and friends. They were shut out 5-0, with Cabrera's two hits representing half of their team hit total. The veteran slugger is slashing .311/.386/.546 with 28 homers and 80 RBI over 482 at-bats. He may be 33 years old, but he remains one of the steadiest fantasy bats around.
Aug 28 - 5:32 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBI to lead the Tigers to a 9-4 victory over the Twins on Wednesday.

His solo blast in the first inning opened the scoring. He then contributed an RBI double in the third inning before adding another double and a single. The future Hall of Famer is batting .313/.386/.552 with 28 home runs, 80 RBI, and 71 runs scored in 124 games.
Aug 25 - 12:54 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-3 and drove in his 1,000th run as a Tiger in Thursday's 4-3 defeat of the Red Sox.

Cabrera singled in a run as part of a three-run rally that gave the Tigers the lead in the eighth. He's driven in 1,000 runs in 1,337 games since joining the Tigers and 1,533 runs in 2,057 games overall. He's 52nd on the all-time RBI list and moving up steadily.
Aug 18 - 4:53 PM

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.
Aug 18 - 8:30 AM

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.
