Wednesday, the Tigers face Jeremy Guthrie and the Royals in Comerica Park. In his career, Cabrera has faced Guthrie 24 times and he's torched him to the tune of .368/.458/.648 with two homers and four RBI.
Here's how Cabrera stands in the three categories of note in this triple crown.
Hamilton is facing Jarrod Parker and the A's Wednesday. He's 0-for-3 lifetime, but such small samples are pretty meaningless. It's an interesting matchup, though, because Rangers Ballpark is one of the most homer-friendly parks in the majors, however, Parker has the best home run rate in the entire American League (just 0.5 homers per nine innings allowed).
He's fine here.
