Tigers' Miguel Cabrera has three doubles in win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 3 for 4 in Friday's win over Chicago. 

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

Cabrera has hit in five straight games, with multi-hit games in four of them. He's 10 for his last 20. 


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.

It was Cabera's fourth home run over his last 10 games, as he continues to rake at the dish this season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Miguel Cabrera drives in four in Tigers' win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera drove in all four runs in Friday's 4-0 win over Cleveland. Cabrera hit a three-run home run to open the scoring in the sixth inning, then drove in another run in the eighth. 

"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' Miguel Cabrera clubs 12th home run on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went yard on Saturday for his 12th home run of the season. His fifth-inning home run, a two-run shot, got the scoring started for Detroit and gave the Tigers a 2-0 lead, on their way to a 7-1 victory over the White Sox.

It was Cabrera's only hit of the game, but he has now hit safely in seven of his last eight games. 

"I thought Miggy's home run kind of let everyone breathe a little easier," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "We've been waiting for this for a long time."


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. 

Being his typical self, Cabrera is batting .314 (11 for 35) with two doubles, a triple and a home run over his last 10 games. 


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. 


Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera blasts 11th home run of the season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 2 for 5 at the plate in Detroit's 10-8 loss to the Astros on Sunday.

Cabrera did his damage in the ninth inning when he crushed the first pitch he saw from Luke Gregerson over the left center field wall for a solo home run, his 11th of the season.

Cabrera is now hitting .344 with 32 RBI in 163 at-bats this season.


Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera collects 1,400th career RBI Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 2 for 4 with an RBI in Thursday's walk-off win against the Astros. The RBI was his 31st and the 1400th of his career. His run-scoring single in the fifth gave the Tigers a 4-0 lead at the time.

Cabrera is the fifth-youngest player ever to reach 1400 RBIs. He joins Andres Galarraga as the only Venezuelan-born players to reach that plateau. 

He also extended his current hitting streak to nine games on Thursday. He has 14 hits in 35 at-bats during the streak to go along with four home runs and 10 RBI.

His 31 RBIs this season rank third in the American League. 


Miguel Cabrera drives in lone run for Tigers in loss


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera didn't hit a home run for a fourth straight game, but he did drive in the Tigers' only run with a first-inning double in a 2-1 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday night. 

Cabrera put the Tigers on the board first with a double to center and drew a walk later in the game. He's now hitting .333 on the year and is tied for first in the American League with three others with 30 RBI. 

During his five-game hitting streak, Cabrera has nine hits and nine RBIs. 


Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera connects for 400th career home run


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera hit a home run in the Tigers' victory against the Cardinals on Saturday, the 400th of his career.

"That means a lot to me," Cabrera said. "But I just want to win and play games."

Cabrera has now homered in three straight games, hitting four during that span.

"He's definitely the best hitter in baseball and he's hands down the smartest player in baseball as well," Tigers starter David Price said. "He's pretty special."

Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera knocks 399th career home run Friday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera homers twice, drives in five on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

This was his third multi-home run game of the season so far. He hit his eighth home run in the bottom of the sixth inning, and his ninth came two innings later. The big performance lifted Cabrera's season batting average to .328.


Tigers' Miguel Cabrera starting slow in May


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 0 for 3 with a walk in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Royals and has just six hits in 31 at-bats this month.

Cabrera was his normal MVP-quality self in April, hitting .373/.465/.627 with five home runs and 17 RBI in 83 at-bats. Aside from a three-hit game in which he homered on May 3, he's had yet to find success since the calendar turned. Cabrera has hit just .186/.327/.209 this May, but it's unlikely the minislump lasts long. Even with the May doldrums, he's hit .325/.431/.535 with six home runs, 21 RBI and a 21:21 K:BB ratio in 114 at-bats.


Tigers' Miguel Cabrera slugs sixth home run Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He was just 1 for 8 in the previous three games of the series but had drawn four walks to provide a constant presence on base.

Cabrera has hit .366/.459/.624 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 93 at-bats.


Tigers planning days off for Miguel Cabrera, Yoenis Cespedes, Ian Kinsler


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that he plans to find days off for some of his regulars who haven't missed a game yet this year. 

Miguel Cabrera has started every game at first base. Ian Kinsler has been a fixture at second, and one day at DH is the only thing that kept Yoenis Cespedes out of left field this season. 

"Absolutely (a day off) can help," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press. "Even if you're not struggling, just to not have to think about every pitch every at-bat, you just kind of sit back for a day and watch the game until you're called upon to go into it. It's almost like going to a spa for the day. It's mentally relaxing."


Miguel Cabrera blasts off twice as Tigers top Twins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) If it was just about anyone else, it would be a ridiculous day at the plate. But what Tigers superstar Miguel Cabrera did Wednesday has become practically mundane for him.

Cabrera went 3-for-4 (yawn). What made his afternoon in Minnesota exceptional was that he slammed two home runs to give him five on the season and three in the last four games.

His explosion started slowly with a mere run-scoring double in the fourth inning. He then rocketed a 446-foot blast to center in the sixth and a 430-foot shot to center in the ninth. By the time the dust settled, his slash line stood at .370/.453/.630.

Cabrera has 17 RBI on the year.


Miguel Cabrera goes deep for Tigers in win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 3 for 4 in Sunday's win over Cleveland. Cabrera drove in three runs, including a two-run home run in the sixth inning. 

"You don't have to do too much," Cabrera said to MLB.com. "If you're trying to say, 'OK, I'm trying to hit a double, home run,' it's not going to happen. When you've got speed in front of you and they get on base, you have to take advantage, make something happen. We did that a lot today and it worked for us."

Cabrera is now hitting .377 with three home runs and 13 RBI this season. 


Tigers' Miguel Cabrera draws four walks


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Miguel Cabrera was walked his first four times up on Saturday, as the Tigers beat Cleveland, 4-1. 

Cabrera became the first Tiger to draw four walks in a game since Matt Tuiasosopo on May 19, 2013. Three of the walks were intentional. He was the first Tiger to get three intentional walks in a game since he did it on August 15, 2010, and he's the first MLB player to do it since Adam Dunn on June 5, 2013.

"He's an unusual hitter," manager Terry Francona said to MLive.com. "Sometimes it depends on the situation, the outs, who's pitching. There's all kinds of things that go into it."

Cabrera made an out in his only at bat of the day. 

"They are either going to pitch him delicately or they're going to walk him," right fielder Rajai Davis said. "It is what it is. They were very careful. They know what he did in Cleveland and they obviously remember it."


First strike yet to matter against Tigers' Miguel Cabrera


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has ridden a hot start to a .426/.491/.660 line with two home runs and 10 RBI in 47 at-bats over his first two weeks.

Many pitchers focus on getting ahead of batters with a first-pitch strike, but doing so has failed to matter against the two-time MVP. Cabrera has hit a remarkable .500/.545/.833 in 30 at-bats after going 0-1 in the count, with both his home runs coming in such a scenario. He's also been a beast with runners in scoring position, hitting .500/.529/.750 with one home run and eight RBI in 16 at-bats. The slugger will open a four-game series against the Yankees Monday.


Cabrera is first Tigers player since 1952 to have 11 hits in 3-game span


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is the first Detroit player since 1952 to record at least 11 hits in a three-game span, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Cabrera had at least three hits in each game during a three-game series against the Indians, which started Friday. He went 11 for 14 (.786) with one double, two home runs, four runs and six RBI against Cleveland. He also had one walk, one strikeout and one stolen base.


Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera slugs two homers in four-hit game


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 4 for 4 with one walk, one double, two home runs and four RBI in his team's 8-5 win over the Indians Sunday.

Cabrera had been heating up over the weekend, going 3 for 5 and 4 for 5 in his first two games against the Indians, but he hadn't homered this season before smacking two balls over the fence Sunday. He's now 13 for 25 with four walks, two home runs and eight RBI in six games.

Cabrera will look to keep rolling in a series against the Pirates in Pittsburgh starting Monday.
