Cabrera (biceps) is optimistic he'll start to take part in baseball activities by mid-December with the ultimate goal of being ready for spring training, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Cabrera's season came to a close after undergoing season-ending surgery on his biceps tendon June 14. His rehab has been going well in Miami and barring any major setbacks, there's a good probability he'll be good to go when spring training begins.
Cabrera (biceps), who has been splitting his time between Michigan and Florida since going down for the season in mid-June, said he's optimistic that he'll be ready for the start of spring training, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Cabrera has primarily been doing rehab work in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He said the process has been "a little slow," but he remains optimistic that his injury won't force him to miss time in 2019. The 35-year-old had an .843 OPS in 38 games before going down with a torn bicep, and while he's not as formidable a hitter as he once was, Cabrera could still have a little bit left in his bat if he comes back healthy. The veteran certainly figures to come at a steep discount in fantasy drafts next spring.
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.
