  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Homers in victory

    Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a homer, two runs, two RBI and a strikeout in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Orioles.

    Cabrera put the Tigers on the board with a solo home run in the bottom of the second inning Sunday as he continued his recent tear at the plate. The 39-year-old has put up multi-hit performances in four of the last five games, and he's posted four extra-base hits during that time. Cabrera is hitting .297 with three homers, 14 RBI and 11 runs to begin the season.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Socks second homer

    Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Friday's 4-2 win over the Orioles.

    He opened the scoring with an RBI two-bagger in the third inning before swatting a solo shot in the sixth, his second homer of the year. Cabrera has seven hits in the last four games, including three extra-base knocks, to push his slash line on the season up to .276/.325/.381 with 12 RBI through 29 contests. The 39-year-old is nearing the end of his Hall of Fame career, but he's still capable of making a contribution.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Records three hits, little else

    Cabrera went 3-for-4 in Wednesday's 9-0 loss to the Athletics.

    Five Detroit players went hitless, and the team as a whole only recorded seven hits, so Cabrera couldn't produce any offense with his three base knocks. The veteran is batting a respectable .268, though he only has four extra-base hits this season, which caps his fantasy value.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Resting for Game 1 of twin bill

    Cabrera is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Athletics.

    Austin Meadows will handle designated-hitter duties in the front end of the doubleheader while Cabrera sits after starting each of the past six games. During that stretch, the 39-year-old went 5-for-23 with a double, one of just four extra-base hits he's recorded across 98 plate appearances on the season.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Records three hits Thursday

    Cabrera went 3-for-4 in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

    The three hits are nice, and Cabrera is batting a solid .284 this season, though he's not producing a ton of extra-base hits or counting stats. The veteran had three singles Thursday, giving him 18 for the season versus only two doubles and a single home run. As a result, Cabrera has just seven runs and seven RBI across 21 games. It's good that he's healthy and making regular contact, but the 39-year-old isn't doing much else for fantasy managers.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Resting for Game 1 of doubleheader

    Cabrera is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Pirates.

    Cabrera looks as though he'll be receiving some routine maintenance for the front end of the twin bill, but he should be back in the lineup for the second game. Austin Meadows will get a turn as the Tigers' designated hitter while Cabrera rests in Game 1.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Hits first home run

    Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

    Cabrera entered the eighth inning with strikeouts in his first three at-bats of the contest, but he salvaged his afternoon with his first home run of the season. The veteran isn't driving the ball like he once did, though he did pop 15 long balls in 2021, which were the most he hit in a season since recording 16 home runs in 2017. Cabrera could approach that range this season if he stays healthy.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Not starting Thursday

    Cabrera isn't starting Thursday's game against the Twins.

    Cabrera went 1-for-7 with three strikeouts over his last two appearances, and he'll get a breather in Thursday's series finale. Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter while Austin Meadows starts in right field.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Rests after getting 3,000th hit

    Cabrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    One day after bagging the 3,000th hit of his career after going a collective 3-for-8 with two RBI and a run while starting in both ends of Saturday's doubleheader, Cabrera will get a well-deserved rest. Austin Meadows will receive a turn as the Tigers' designated hitter while Cabrera retreats to the bench.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Reaches milestone in easy win

    Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI in a 13-0 win over the Rockies in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Cabrera made history in the first inning, when his single against Colorado starter Antonio Senzatela gave him 3,000 for his storied career. The veteran slugger became just the seventh player in MLB history with 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. Cabrera is no longer the dominant force he once was, though he does have a solid .326 batting average so far this season, giving him some fantasy utility in deep leagues.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Nearing 3,000 career hits

    Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

    For the second time in his last five games, Cabrera had a three-hit night with all the hits being singles, but fantasy managers won't complain about the consistent contact. The good stretch at the plate has also propelled the veteran to 2,999 hits for his storied career, putting him on the verge of becoming the 33rd player in MLB history with 3,000 hits. The Tigers play the Yankees again in a Thursday afternoon contest at home, so expect Cabrera to be in the lineup as he chases the milestone.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Singles three more times

    Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a run scored in a 4-2 win Thursday in Kansas City.

    Cabrera singled in his first three plate appearances, and he's now just six hits shy of 3,000 for his career. The veteran slugger has yet to hit for much power this year with only one extra-base hit in the first seven games, but he continues to bat fifth as the designated hitter for the Tigers. There's a decent chance Cabrera will reach the historic milestone during next week's homestand.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Day off Wednesday

    Cabrera isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Cabrera was in the lineup for each of the first five games of the regular season and went 4-for-17 with a double, three RBI, a run, two walks and six strikeouts. He'll get a breather while Eric Haase serves as the designated hitter and bats sixth.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Records two hits, plates run

    Cabrera went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Monday's win over the Red Sox.

    Cabrera keeps inching closer to reaching the 3,000-hit threshold thanks to his first multi-hit game of the campaign. As if that was not enough, he also plated the team's first run in this game with a sac fly that scored Austin Meadows in the bottom of the first. Cabrera is now just nine hits short of reaching that aforementioned plateau.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Should be regular DH

    With Spencer Torkelson making the Opening Day roster, per Jason Beck of MLB.com, Cabrera will likely serve as the team's primary designated hitter this season.

    Cabrera made 44 appearances at first base last season versus 83 starts at DH, and that split could get even more extreme in 2022 with Torkelson on board and set to play first most days. Cabrera may still fill in at first when Torkelson rests, but the veteran looks like he won't play the field very much unless injuries change the team's plans.

  • Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Could work as DH more

    Cabrera may see more time as the designated hitter in 2022 if the team wants to play Spencer Torkelson at first base, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Torkelson, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 first-year player draft, will be competing for an Opening Day roster spot in camp. Whenever Torkelson arrives in the majors, he'll likely see time at first, with the veteran Cabrera working as the DH and Jonathan Schoop shifting over to second. After a few injury-plagued seasons, the 38-year-old Cabrera appeared in 130 games for the Tigers last year, recording a .702 OPS, 15 home runs and 75 RBI.
