Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Goes deep Wednesday
Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run, two runs scored and two total RBI in Wednesday's suspended contest against the Royals, which resumed Thursday.
With Cabrera wrapping up his incredible career this weekend, the veteran showed a flash of his vintage form to reach 511 career home runs, which moves him into a tie with Mel Ott for 25th all time. He hasn't looked like a feared slugger often this season, though, as he only has four long balls and a .661 OPS. Cabrera has nine total home runs the last two years after reaching double figures every season during his career previously except for 2018, when he only played in 38 games due to injury....

Cabrera will head to the bench for the day game after he went 4-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a run in Saturday's 10-0 win. With Riley Greene (elbow) landing on the injured list Saturday, the Tigers are likely to deploy Kerry Carpenter in right field more frequently and open up more starts at designated hitter for Cabrera down the stretch for the final stanza of the 40-year-old's prolific career....

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Heads to bench Monday
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs.
Just as manager A.J. Hinch had suggested Sunday would be the case, Cabrera will take a seat for the series opener with the Cubs while Kerry Carpenter serves as Detroit's designated hitter. Cabrera has been serving as the Tigers' primary DH throughout August and likely won't be phased out of the lineup in the final stanza of his Hall of Fame-worthy career, though the promotion of outfield prospect Parker Meadows to the big leagues Monday could mean that the 40-year-old ends up moving into a short-side platoon role....

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Moves to bench Thursday
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins.
Cabrera has quietly hit .321 since the All-Star break, but he's largely been a one-category fantasy contributor, as he's complemented the lofty batting average with no home runs or stolen bases and just four runs and three RBI in 16 games. He'll hit the bench for Thursday's matinee game, but Cabrera appears to have moved back into a near-everyday role as he approaches the finish line in his last season in the big leagues. Cabrera had started in 10 of Detroit's previous 12 games.... See More ... See Less
