Cabrera (biceps) will be transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. The move has no effect on Cabrera's timetable, as he's already been ruled out for the remainder of the year after undergoing surgery to repair his biceps tendon. It opens up a spot for the Tigers to select the contract of Jim Adduci from Triple-A Toledo.
Cabrera underwent successful surgery to repair his biceps tendon Thursday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports. Cabrera ruptured the tendon in his left biceps Tuesday and will miss the rest of the 2018 campaign. The Tigers will move him to the 60-day disabled list as soon as they need to clear a spot on their 40-man roster. The veteran, who'll turn 36 next April, should be ready to go for spring training games before the 2019 season.
Cabrera will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left biceps, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Cabrera exited Tuesday's game with what was initially described as a left biceps strain, but a subsequent MRI has revealed a full tear of the muscle. The first baseman was in the midst of a solid bounce-back campaign (128 wRC+) following his sluggish 2017 season, but he will now miss the remainder of the year following his upcoming procedure. John Hicks figures to act as the Tigers' primary first baseman moving forward.
Cabrera exited Tuesday's game against the Twins with a left biceps strain. Cabrera suffered the injury on a swing in the third inning. He's currently undergoing an MRI which will lend some clarity on the severity of his strain. A trip to the disabled list is not out of the question, as Cabrera was seen sporting a brace on his left arm after the contest, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Cabrera exited Tuesday's game against the Twins after appearing to injure his left arm in the third inning, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Cabrera dropped his bat in pain after taking a hard cut at a Jake Odorizzi offspeed offering in the bottom of the third. He cradled his left biceps/elbow area and immediately walked off the field. The slugging first baseman missed three games with a left biceps injury earlier this season, so it's possible that he may have aggravated that injury. We'll await word from the Tigers as to the official diagnosis.
