Miguel Cabrera returns to the field
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/26/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, after getting a few days off to rest a sore ankle.

Cabrera is batting third and starting at first base, the first time he has been in the field since Friday. He got two days off entirely as he was not in the lineup Sunday, ahead of Monday's off-day.

Tigers expect Miguel Cabrera to return Tuesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/25/14) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus told reporters that he would be "shocked" if first baseman Miguel Cabrera doesn't return to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, according to MLive.com.

Cabrera sat out Sunday's series finale against the Twins to rest his ankle. He is hitting .304 (7 for 23) with no homers and three RBI over his last seven days. He owns a .308/.375/.501 slash line with 17 homers and 89 RBI over 483 at-bats this season.
Miguel Cabrera gets Sunday off to rest ankle
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is not in Sunday's starting lineup in order to rest his sore ankle, MLB.com reports.

Cabrera could be used as a pinch-hitter Sunday, but if he isn't called upon, he'll get two fulls days of rest before presumingly returning to action Tuesday.

Miguel Cabrera serving as DH with ankle issue
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/21/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera was serving as the designated hitter for Thursday's game against the Rays after aggravating an ankle injury Wednesday, manager Brad Ausmus told reporters.

Cabrera has served as the DH in 13 of his 123 games this season. Ausmus does not think this injury is much of a concern moving forward. 

Does Avisail Garcia have value this season?
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/14)
Can Avisail Garcia live up to the hype? (USATSI)
Can Avisail Garcia live up to the hype? (USATSI)

White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia is back. After suffering a brutal shoulder injury April 9, there was a good chance Garcia would miss the rest of the season. That's no longer the case. Garcia worked his way back, and has dominated during a rehab assignment, hitting .340 over 13 games. Garcia entered the year as a late-round, high-upside player, so his activation should intrigue Fantasy owners. Will Garcia produce enough to help teams down the stretch?

The answer partially depends on how you evaluated Garcia entering the season. Scouts have been mixed. Garcia hasn't shown the best command of the strike zone while coming up as a prospect, but has tremendous physical skills. He frequently drew comparisions to Miguel Cabrera due to his body type. The White Sox obviously think highly of Garcia. The club not only dealt for him last season, but plugged him into the middle of the order immediately. 

On a performance-basis, it's tough to know what to expect. Garcia performed admirably in 2013, and got off to a promising start in 2014. Unfortunately, his 2014 performance consists of 34 plate appearances. 

The White Sox aren't expecting a dropoff. In his first game off the disabled list, Garcia will hit behind Jose Abreu. That's a desirable job for nearly any hitter in the majors. He'll also hit behind Adam Eaton, who quietly has a .370 on-base percentage. That should give Garcia some nice RBI opportunities, at least when Abreu doesn't go deep. 

Even in a best case scenario, it's tough to recommend Garcia as anything more than a reserve in mixed leagues. Outfield is deep, and there are other players on the waiver wire with better numbers than Garcia. While there's upside with Garcia, no one knows how good he can be at this point in his career. Given the choice between picking up an unknown in Garcia or a guy like Christian Yelich, a safe owner would choose Yelich almost every time. 

Garcia's outlook hasn't really changed since the beginning of the season. If you liked him then, you should like him now. But given the depth in the outfield, it's tough to say owners should spring to pick him up on the waiver wire. In three outfielder leagues, he can stay out there. In anything deeper, he's definitely worth an add.
