Report: Miguel Cabrera might not need surgery on ankle
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(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.
Tigers GM: Miguel Cabrera might undergo ankle surgery

|(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.
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.
|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.
