  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Resting Sunday, as expected

    Cabrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Just as manager A.J. Hinch suggested would be the case when the Tigers began their homestand Thursday, Cabrera will be alternating starts with days off for the next week while he continues to manage a right knee issue. After going 1-for-4 with an RBI in Saturday's 9-1 win, Cabrera will give way at designated hitter to Harold Castro in the series finale.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Heads to bench

    Cabrera will sit Friday against the Rays.

    Reports from Thursday indicated that Cabrera would be limited to starting every other game for at least the next week while he manages lingering knee pain. The Tigers appear to be sticking to that plan so far. Cabrera's production has dipped this year, as his .268/.317/.332 line is good for a career-worst 85 wRC+, but he's due $32 million next season, so he has a strong incentive to hold off on retirement for one more year. Victor Reyes will be the designated hitter Friday.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: More frequent rest upcoming

    Cabrera will serve as the Tigers' designated hitter and No. 3 batter in Thursday's game against the Rays, but manager A.J. Hinch said the 39-year-old will start in every other game through the duration of the homestand while he manages lingering right knee pain, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Once the homestand concludes Aug. 11, Hinch said the Tigers' training and coaching staffs will meet with Cabrera to decide if he's ready to step back into an everyday role, or if he'll continue to require more frequent rest. Though Cabrera doesn't seem to be dealing with a major injury, it's clear the rigors of the long season is taking a toll on the future Hall of Famer, who is sitting on a career-worst .657 OPS for the campaign. To that end, Woodbery noted that Cabrera alluded to the possibility of retirement Thursday when he spoke to the media. Given that Cabrera is due $32 million in 2023 in the final season of his eight-year contract extension, the most likely outcome remains that he'll hold off on retiring for one more year.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Cabrera isn't starting Wednesday against the Twins.

    Eric Haase will step in as the designated hitter for the series finale while Cabrera gets the day off after he went 0-for-15 with a run, a walk and two strikeouts over the last four games. According to Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press, manager A.J. Hinch said Cabrera has been bothered by his right knee lately, and though the issue isn't serious enough to send the 39-year-old to the injured list, he'll likely be getting more frequent days off over the final two months of the season.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: On bench Friday

    Cabrera isn't in the lineup Friday against the Blue Jays.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Pops home run in rout

    Cabrera went 1-for-2 with two walks, a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's 12-4 win over the Padres.

    Cabrera went deep in the sixth inning for his fourth home run of the season and 506th of his storied career. The veteran is now batting .284 this year, and while his power has largely vanished, he's still hitting in the middle of Detroit's order most days. Cabrera will have modest fantasy value as long as he keeps hitting and stays healthy.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Idle for matinee game

    Cabrera is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader in Oakland.

    Following his appearance in Tuesday's All-Star Game as a legacy selection, the 39-year-old Cabrera will get a breather as the Tigers open up their second-half schedule. Expect Cabrera to re-enter the lineup for the nightcap, while Javier Baez gets a turn as the Tigers' designated hitter in the early game.

    Cabrera will sit Sunday versus the Guardians.

    Cabrera will get a breather in the Tigers' final game before the All-Star break. Robbie Grossman will take over at designated hitter and bat sixth in the series finale.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Steals rare base Tuesday

    Cabrera went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Royals. He also stole a base.

    Cabrera had a productive night considering he didn't record a hit. He had a sacrifice fly and a groundout, then later stole his first base since 2020 and only his second since 2015. Speed is obviously not a big part of the veteran's game, as the last time he recorded more than a single steal in a season was 2013. Cabrera has still been reasonably effective this year with a .287 batting average.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Gets breather Wednesday

    Cabrera isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Royals.

    Cabrera is in the midst of a cold spell at the plate in which he's hit .045 with a double, three RBI, a run and a stolen base over the last six games. He'll get a breather while Harold Castro serves as the designated hitter and bats fifth.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Getting maintenance day

    Cabrera is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Unless he's used off the bench, Cabrera will put his 12-game hitting streak on hold while Harold Castro replaces him as the Tigers' designated hitter. Cabrera is likely just getting some maintenance after he made four starts in three days during the Tigers' series sweep of the Guardians while going 6-for-13 with two walks, six RBI and two runs in those contests.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Drives in three

    Cabrera went 1-for-3 with three RBI on Wednesday against the Guardians.

    Cabrera made the most of his lone hit, delivering a two-RBI single in the fifth inning. He extended his hitting streak to 13 games with the performance, during which he's hit .383 with nine RBI and three runs scored. Cabrera has maintained a .308/.347/.372 line across 274 plate appearances on the season.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Tallies three hits Tuesday

    Cabrera went 3-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Guardians.

    As has often been the case this year, Cabrera racked up a lot of singles. The veteran is batting .308 and 67 of his 77 hits have been of the one-base variety. As a result, his OPS is only .720 despite the high batting average, but this has still been a strong season overall for Cabrera. The most important thing has been that he's stayed healthy, as he's now played in 69 of the team's first 80 games, with maintenance days accounting for most of his absences so far.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Gets breather for day game

    Cabrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    The Tigers are facing a quick turnaround for the series finale with Sunday's game beginning at 12:05 p.m. ET, so Cabrera will be granted a veteran's maintenance day. Harold Castro will check in as the designated hitter in place of Cabrera, who went 12-for-38 (.316 average) with two walks, three RBI and no runs while starting in each of Detroit's last 10 games.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Stays in lineup

    Cabrera will serve as Detroit's designated hitter and No. 3 batter in Wednesday's game against the Giants.

    Even though he started in each of the past seven contests, Cabrera will stick in the starting nine for the day game after a night game. Cabrera went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 4-3 loss and has now produced at least one hit in all but one of his last 12 starts.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Tallies three hits Tuesday

    Cabrera went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

    Cabrera continues to be mostly a singles hitter, as all three hits Tuesday were of the one-base variety. For the season, only 10 of the veteran's 63 total hits have gone for extra bases. Still, it's hard to complain about a .300 average during someone's age-39 season, which is where Cabrera is at right now. He's a steady if unspectacular presence in the Detroit lineup.
