Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's win over the Mariners.
The home run only counted for two, but Miggy earned some style points with the shot. He hit a Nate Karns pitch to left-center that cleared the bushes at Comerica Park, a bomb estimated at 454 feet by MLB.com's Statcast. The homer was his 15th of the season, giving him 43 RBI and 40 runs scored. The talented first baseman is hitting .309/.382/.543 in another strong campaign. Jun 20 - 11:58 PM

Miguel Cabrera slugged his 14th home run as the Tigers were slaughtered by the Royals on Friday.

The Tigers had been shut out through the first eight frames until Cabrera's solo shot off Dillon Gee in the ninth inning prevented a shutout. He also added a pair of singles in the contest, finishing the day 3-for-4. The 33-year-old is having another terrific season, slashing .306/.379/.539 with 14 homers and 40 RBI.

Miguel Cabrera finished 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Cabrera doubled twice in the game, giving him four doubles in his last three games and 16 on the year. Cabrera is hitting .305/.379/.524 with 12 home runs, 37 RBI and 37 runs scored this season, looking determined to prove that last season was merely a blip on the radar and not a sign of things to come for the 33-year-old.

Miguel Cabrera had a rare off-night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Yankees, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

Cabrera and the rest of the Tigers offense were completely baffled by left-hander C.C. Sabathia, totaling just six hits and zero runs in the contest. Cabrera is in the midst of another nice season, slashing .298/.371/.518 with 12 homers and 36 RBI.
Jun 10 - 10:35 PM

Miguel Cabrera (back) went 1-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Cabrera had to exit Friday's game with lower back tightness, but he's fine. He's sporting a .308/.383/.538 batting line on the season.
Jun 5 - 8:11 AM

Miguel Cabrera was forced to leave Friday's game against the White Sox due to lower back tightness.

Cabrera seemed to tweak his back while leaning away from an inside pitch during his at-bat in the seventh inning. He has proven to be a warrior in the past and willing to play through most injuries, so expect that he'll be back in there against Chris Sale on Saturday.
Jun 3 - 10:02 PM

Miguel Cabrera was removed from Friday's game against the White Sox in the seventh inning due to an apparent injury.

Cabrera delivered an RBI single in the frame, but was running gingerly around the bases when the team trainer came out to get him. Expect an update from the club on his status shortly.
Jun 3 - 9:52 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

He also grounded out against Aroldis Chapman with a runner on third base and two outs in the ninth inning, an unfortunate time to pick up his first out of the evening. The multi-hit game was his first since May 23, a somewhat surprising stretch for the all-everything hitter. It hasn't done much to affect his bottom line, as Cabrera is batting a healthy .310/.385/.550 in 53 games this year.
Jun 3 - 1:17 AM

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-3 with a pair of solo homers in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Cabrera's dingers in the third and fifth innings both tied the game at the time, and he scored the winning run on a Victor Martinez RBI single in the seventh. Miggy's slow start to the season seems like a distant memory. He's now batting .515 with seven home runs over his last nine games.
May 23 - 10:36 PM

Miguel Cabrera is in the Tigers' starting lineup on Monday night against the Phillies.

Cabrera made an early exit Sunday after taking a pitch off his left knee, but tests came up negative. He'll start at first base and bat third versus Vince Velasquez.
May 23 - 3:35 PM

Miguel Cabrera departed Sunday's game versus the Rays after being hit in the left knee with a pitch.

The good news is that the Tigers are calling him day-to-day with a knee contusion, so it doesn't appear there's anything to worry about here. Cabrera went 3-for-3 with a homer and two RBI before exiting.
May 22 - 3:48 PM

Miguel Cabrera blasted a pair of mammoth home runs on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Tigers to overcome the Rays.

Cabrera tagged Rays starter Matt Andriese for a two-run shot that tied the game in the third inning. He later added a solo blast to pull the Tigers to within a run at 6-5, but that would be as close as they would get. Cabrera also singled, finishing the night 3-for-5. He has been heating up at the plate in recent weeks and is now slashing .308/.377/.519 with eight homers and 24 RBI on the year.
May 20 - 10:51 PM

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-5 with a go-ahead home run in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

The Orioles held a 5-4 lead entering the eighth inning, but J.D. Martinez tied the affair with a solo home run. Next batter up was Cabrera, who socked a solo shot of his own off reliever Darren O'Day to push the Tigers to a 6-5 advantage. That would stand as the final. The future Hall of Famer is slashing .286/.363/.464 with six homers and 20 RBI over 140 at-bats. With two homers and four RBI combined on Saturday and Sunday, that bat might be about to hit a hot stretch.
May 15 - 5:49 PM

Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run home run in a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

Cabrera's two-run blast in the top of the sixth inning was the only offense the Tigers could muster against O's starter Mike Wright. It was his fifth dinger of the season and first this month, giving him 18 RBI. Some wrote off his power shortage last season as a fluke -- his 18 homers were the lowest output in a season since his rookie year in 2003 -- but perhaps it was the beginning of a slow decline for the 33-year-old.
May 14 - 10:14 PM

Miguel Cabrera is making his first start at third base since August 12, 2014 on Wednesday night against the Nationals.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus wanted to get Nick Castellanos a breather, and Cabrera is obviously the best offensive option. It's still a bit odd given the way Cabrera moves these days. Victor Martinez is starting at first base against Nationals righty Max Scherzer.
