|Miguel Cabrera starts despite bone spur |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/8/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera, who hobbled off the field in the seventh inning Sunday after aggravating his injured ankle, was back in the starting lineup Monday against the Royals, but at DH.
Cabrera has been dealing with a bone spur in his right ankle for several weeks, prompting speculation that he'll need surgery in the offseason. But manager Brad Ausmus said that's not necessarily the case.
"I don't know where that came from, because we don't know what is going to happen," he said. "The consensus is that there's one spur causing the aggravation."
Cabrera hasn't let the injury slow him at the plate. He's batting .500 (15 for 30) with five home runs in his last seven games.
|Miguel Cabrera slugs two homers in losing effort |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/6/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera put together yet another productive effort Saturday, though it came in a 5-4 loss to the Giants.
Cabrera went 2 for 4 for his fifth multi-hit performance in the last six games, and both of his hits were big ones. He clubbed a pair of home runs in the game, and finished with three RBI and two runs scored in the loss.
Cabrera has four home runs in the first six games of September, besting his total from the previous two combined. He is hitting .309/.369/.513 with 21 home runs and 97 RBI in a down season.
|Miguel Cabrera blasts two home runs in four-hit game Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera exploded offensively Monday, going 4 for 5 with two home runs and three RBI in his team's 12-1 win over the Indians.
Cabrera kicked off the scoring with a two-run home run in the first inning and tacked on a solo shot in the eighth. He hadn't homered since Aug. 2 before Monday, and it was his first multi-homer game of the season. Cabrera has hit .304/.367/.501 with 19 home runs and 94 RBI in 513 at-bats.
|Miguel Cabrera returns to lineup as designated hitter |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/1/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera returned to the lineup as a designated hitter Monday afternoon at Cleveland, the Detroit News reports. Cabrera re-aggravated his ankle while trying to leg out a hit on Saturday. He is hitting .299/.363/.486 with 17 homers and 91 RBI over 508 at-bats.
|For the second straight year, Miguel Cabrera led all hitters in Fantasy points in standard scoring formats, so there's a good chance that, if you don't have the first pick in your draft, you won't be getting him. If owners have a reason to pass Cabrera up with the top pick, it would be due to nerves over the groin strain hampered him late last season and into the playoffs. Cabrera had surgery to repair the strain shortly after the Tigers' exit from the postseason, and he should be ready for spring training. Aside from whatever uncertainty lingers around Cabrera's recovery, the only other negative development is a long-term one; he is moving from third base back to first base to replace the departed Prince Fielder, so this could be his last season of third base eligibility.
