Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera continues to make progress in return from calf strain

Cabrera took some ground balls on the field Saturday, one day after he took batting practice on the field for the first time since injuring his left calf. BOSTON -- Miguel Cabrera took batting practice on the field Friday. He took some ground balls that did not require much lateral movement during batting practice Saturday. But those are not the final steps for him to return to the playing field. Sudden movement -- either out of the batter's box or on a ground ball to first base in a game situation -- will be the final hurdle he has to clear, Detroit Tigers...

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera taking swings, fielding for 1st time since going on DL

Don't expect him to be back in the lineup just yet, though. There had been no progress to report on Miguel Cabrera since he went on the disabled list on July 4 with a Grade 3 left calf strain. That was, until Friday. Cabrera was seen taking throws at first base, and later taking swings in the cage at Fenway Park, according to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News. It's been about three weeks since Cabrera was injured, so while it's small progress, it's still good news. It was noted that Cabrera wasn't taking full swings, but he was at least swinging away in the cage. Earlier in the day McCosky...

Injured Miguel Cabrera hits road with Detroit Tigers: 'This is what I love, so I want to be here'

Cabrera has been on the disabled list since July 4 after suffering a Grade 3 strain in his left calf during the game the night before. BOSTON -- Miguel Cabrera will do what he can to support the Detroit Tigers from the sidelines during a 10-game road trip that could go a long way toward deciding the season. But he isn't with the team just to be a cheerleader. He wants to get back on the field. And he thinks his rehabilitation process will move more smoothly and potentially more quickly if he is with the team. "I'm here because I want to be here," Cabrera...

Tigers trade rumors: 5 first basemen who might be available in a trade

Without Miguel Cabrera, the Tigers may be looking for a first baseman ahead of the July 31 trade deadline. Here are some trade candidates. The Detroit Tigers will be without their most valuable player as Miguel Cabrera will be out of action for six weeks or more with a calf strain. That’s at least half of the remainder of the 2015 season, assuming Cabrera returns on schedule. When he does come back, the Tigers still lack any decent hitters on their bench, particularly left-handed hitters. Detroit picked up first baseman Marc Krauss off waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays. Although he homered...

No Red Sox, No Evil Ones On AL All-Star Squad

There was a time when the American League All-Star team was peppered with pinstripes and Carmine Hose. For example, ten years ago, in 2005, Alex Rodriguez joined Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Johnny Damon and Jason Varitek as All-Star starters. No longer. Not one AL starter in next week's Midsummer Classic will hail from Boston or New York (even though Mark Teixeira is filling the injured Miguel Cabrera's roster spot, Albert Pujols will start at 1B). Signs and wonders.

Detroit Tigers links: The Tigers are in big trouble without Miguel Cabrera

Six weeks without a Hall of Famer in the lineup is a daunting task, but the Tigers' lackluster pitching will ultimately be their downfall. The Detroit Tigers won two of three in their weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays without Miguel Cabrera, but there were some serious warning signs that this team won't be able to withstand his absence. Losing a Hall of Fame talent like Cabrera is a huge blow to their playoff hopes, which have already dropped to 30.1 percent according to Fangraphs. Lynn Henning of the Detroit News outlined what the offense needs to do in order to stay afloat...
