Report: Miguel Cabrera might not need surgery on ankle

|(10/15/14) Tigers general manager and president Dave Dombrowski believes the large bone spur in the right ankle of slugger Miguel Cabrera might not require surgery, per MLB.com.
"Is it a possibility? I'd say it is a possibility," Dombrowski said. "I don't know if it's going to happen or not. Sure. There's a spur in there, and people that have looked at him so far tell me that it has to be removed. It's a relatively easy - for them - procedure. But I don't want to draw any conclusions yet, because he's not done with that whole process."
Cabrera performed better down the stretch despite an ankle ailment that plagued him throughout the year. He won American League Player of he Year honors in September by batting .379 with eight home runs and 18 RBI.

|(10/14/14) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday first baseman Miguel Cabrera could undergo ankle surgery in the offseason, per MLB.com. Cabrera was bothered by bone spurs in his right ankle during the second half of the season.
"I'd say [surgery] is a possibility. I don't know if it's going to happen," Dombrowski said. "There's a spur in there, and people tell me if it has to be removed, it is for them a relatively simple procedure."
Miguel Cabrera slugs 25th home run Friday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 3 for 4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in his team's 11-4 loss to the Twins Friday.
Cabrera collected an RBI single in the fifth inning to put his team within three runs of the lead, but by the time he tacked on a solo home run in seventh, the Tigers were behind six runs with little hope of pulling out the win. The Royals are now one back of the Tigers for the division lead with two games left to play.
Cabrera has put an exclamation point on another fantastic season by homering in back-to-back games. He has hit .315/.373/.528 with 25 home runs and 109 RBI in 604 at-bats. Cabrera has been even better in September, hitting .396/.427/.750 with eight home runs and 18 RBI in 96 at-bats this month.
Miguel Cabrera dominant in September
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/20/14) Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has taken flight in September, hitting .463/.507/.836 with six home runs and 13 RBI in 67 at-bats.
Cabrera has collected multiple hits in nine of his 17 games this month, and he's a whopping 11 for 20 over his last five games, smacking four doubles and one home run during that stretch. With the excellent stretch, Cabrera has boosted his line to .318/.380/.527 with 23 home runs and 104 RBI in 575 at-bats.
|2014 summary: As a 22-year-old rookie, Nick Castellanos' game was a work in progress. He struck out in 26 percent of his at-bats and offered modest power with 11 home runs, but there were some clear positives. Castellanos hit with gap power and produced 31 doubles and four triples, and his strikeouts were offset by the fact that he hit only 10 infield flies all season. Still, a .259/.306/.394 slash line with 66 RBI and 50 runs wasn't good enough to rank Castellanos among the top 20 third basemen in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: Castellanos was often the odd man out when the Tigers visited National League parks and the DH slot was eliminated from the lineup. As long as Miguel Cabrera is a viable option at third base, Castellanos could lose occasional at-bats. Even so, he will be the clear regular at the hot corner.
2015 outlook: Castellanos' four-year rise through the Tigers' minor-league system had its share of ups and downs, but at times, he showed an ability to strike out at a moderate rate and hit for decent power. He certainly has breakout potential, but it may not be realized in his sophomore season. The safe play is to pass on Castellanos in standard mixed leagues although he is a worthy gamble in deeper formats.
