Cabrera (back) is in the lineup Monday against the A's. After missing Sunday's outing due to a tight back, Cabrera is in the lineup Monday. He'll slot in at the DH spot and hit third against Jharel Cotton and the A's. Over his last seven games, Cabrera has gone just 5-for-24 (.208) and struck out seven times.
Cabrera (back) is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox. Cabrera left Saturday's game in the fifth inning with back tightness and will be held out of the lineup Sunday due to the issue. At this point in time, there's yet to be any word regarding the severity of the ailment, but more information should be available soon. Efren Navarro will start a first base and hit fifth with Cabrera out.
Cabrera was prematurely lifted from Saturday's game against the White Sox with lower-back tightness, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Cabrera has dealt with back discomfort all season, and it cropped up again Saturday. He was 0-for-2 and looked uncomfortable before John Hicks replaced him at first base at the start of the fifth inning. He's listed as day-to-day.
Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a home run in Thursday's loss to the White Sox. The 34-year-old's sudden and dramatic decline has made for one of the most surprising stories of the baseball season. He's still batting just .249/.331/.405 with 16 homers and 60 RBI after Thursday's output, but he's Miguel Cabrera and most owners don't have a better alternative. Hopefully he'll come on strong over the final couple weeks.
Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Saturday against the Blue Jays. In his return from a six-game suspension, Cabrera launched his 15th bomb of the season to give the Tigers a two-run lead in the first inning of a game they'd go on to lose. Unless fantasy managers are willing to gamble on him getting hot over the last few weeks of the season, his .250./.334/.406 slash line has made him a tough player to trust this season.
