(7/25/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is progressing well from the calf injury that landed him on the 15-day disabled list, per The Detroit News.

Cabrera has been cleared for light baseball activities. He took throws and some swings in a light batting practice session on Friday.

"Feeling better," Cabrera said. "Making progress. Hopefully it will be soon I can get on the field and try to do some baseball activities."

"I want to say my body will tell me," Cabrera said. "Hopefully I can make good progress. I don't want to say six weeks or eight weeks. I want to see how it feels every day and when I am ready to play I want to say, 'I'm ready to go.' That's my mind(set).

"These injuries can take a long time. Hopefully it can be soon."

Cabrera hit three doubles, giving him 16 for the season. He also drove in his 53rd run. 

"He's the best hitter in the game. You try to limit what's going on," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said of Cabrera. "You try to keep him in the yard. It's hard to do. It sounds crazy, but if he just hits a single, you're like, 'OK, we'll work with that.' And he didn't hit too many singles. He doesn't hit too many singles

Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera out of lineup for second time in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera was held out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Indians for just the second time in 72 games this season. The only other time Cabrera wasn't in the starting lineup was May 25.

“Even Superman needs a day off,” manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. “It was just the timing. It’s a 12 o’clock game. There’s not many pitchers I look at the stat sheet and go, ‘Well, Miggy doesn’t hit him.’ I think David Price is the one he doesn’t hit, and he’s on his team. You never want Miggy out of the lineup, but you have to have a little bit of vision.”

Andrew Romine started in place of Cabrera, who has totaled multiple hits in three straight games. He has a .397/.494/.618/1.111 slash line in 19 June games. He also has three doubles, four home runs, 18 RBI, 14 runs and 13 walks this month.

"Unfortunately, the two guys up before Miggy get hits and (starter Salazar) tried to throw him a cutter," Indians manager Terry Francona said of the home run. "It was probably middle-middle and he does with it what he does with mistakes."

Cabrera went 2 for 3 with a double, his 12th, and a walk. He hit his second home run in the last five games, giving him 13 on the year, as well as 43 RBI.

Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera doesn't miss a beat, starts Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) Despite being hit on the foot with a pitch on Thursday, Miguel Cabrera is in the starting lineup for the Tigers' contest with the Angels on Friday. Cabrera will indeed start at first base and bat third as usual.

Tigers' Ausmus expecting Miguel Cabrera (foot) to play Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) Angels starting pitcher C.J. Wilson gave Tigers personnel and fans a scare Thursday night when he plunked star Miguel Cabrera with a pitch on his surgically repaired right foot.

Cabrera did hobble around after getting hit and was checked out by trainer Doug Teter, but the veteran slugger remained in the game and gave a thumbs up to manager Brad Ausmus.

"It stings him at first, and it's in an area that's been a problem for him," Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "But I think he realized relatively quickly that his ankle was fine, relatively speaking."

Ausmus said the pitch hit Cabrera around the middle of the foot, and it was closer to the toes than the area where he had offseason surgery to repair a stress fracture that bothered him for most of the second half during the 2014 season. 

Cabrera had one more at-bat in the fifth inning before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning. However, it was more because the Tigers were trailing 12-2 than because Cabrera was hurting, per MLB.com.

Ausmus said he expects Cabrera to start Friday, and he will likely be in the lineup at first base.

"He doesn't really like DHing," Ausmus said. "As a matter of fact, he says it's more beneficial for him to be playing first because it keeps the ankle loose."


Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera out of lineup Monday


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/25/2015) First baseman Miguel Cabrera was not in the Tigers lineup Monday, the first time all season the slugger has not started. Cabrera will be replaced at first base by Hernan Perez.

Manager Brad Ausmus said that Cabrera's ankle has been cranky the last few days, making Monday a good time to give the slugger an off-day following the team's flight to Oakland, the Detroit Free Press reports. He is available as a pinch-hitter against the A's.

"Just give him a day mentally," said Ausmus when asked if he considered tabbing Cabrera as the designated hitter, per MLive.com. "His ankle has been a little cranky the last few days, so it's a good time. Especially after the flight."

In addition, rookie shortstop Dixon Machado will make the first start of his MLB career and hit ninth for the Tigers. Machado was called up from Triple-A on Sunday as Jose Iglesias battles a sore knee.

Aside from a three-hit game in which he homered on May 3, he's had yet to find success since the calendar turned.
