Miguel Cabrera's ankle, contract could alter AL Central

Extensive surgery puts Opening Day at risk, and highlights risk of monstrous eight-year extension Miguel Cabrera had a down year in 2014 by his standards, which means he won't win the MVP for a third straight season. He hit .313/.371/.524 with 25 homers, well short of the 44 he posted in both 2012 and 2013. Pitchers seemed to sense a vulnerability, as he struck out nearly twice as often (117) as he walked (60). Both of those numbers were his worst since 2008, his first season in Detroit. (White Sox pitchers had plenty to do with that last stat -- one walk, 18 strikeouts over 76 plate...

Dave Dombrowski: Injury worse than expected, Miguel Cabrera 'is as tough as you can possibly be'

Dave Dombrowski: Injury worse than expected, Miguel Cabrera 'is as tough as you can possibly be'

Cabrera will be reevaluated in three months. That timeframe sets him up for evaluation late in January, about three weeks before the start of spring training. The Detroit Tigers do not know for sure when Miguel Cabrera will resume baseball activities or play in his first game. They cannot say with 100 percent certainty that he will be ready for the start of spring training or even opening day. But general manager Dave Dombrowski is certain of one thing: Cabrera showed some extreme toughness by playing through an ankle injury that was significantly worse than it...

Tigers report card: Don Kelly was the people's champion

He didn't do much else, but he wasn't really asked to. Like Brandon Inge before him, Don Kelly gets a disproportionate amount of love and hate from both ends of the Tigers' fanbase. Even Miguel Cabrera doesn't have a t-shirt company named after him. Or a well-rehearsed internet meme. Also: pic.twitter.com/bTjwh3G9jT — Bless You Boys (@blessyouboys) October 5, 2014 Don Kelly was a one-of-a-kind player for this Tigers team despite having perhaps the most mundane season of anyone on the roster.

Miguel Cabrera waiting for decision from Tigers, doctors on bone spur treatment

The Tigers haven't ruled out any solutions for Miguel Cabrera's right ankle bone spur, including surgery. However, Dave Dombrowski said Cabrera is still being evaluated and no decision has been reached. DETROIT — The 2014 season was rough for Miguel Cabrera, but the end of the previous season was worse. It was clear for the majority of this season that Cabrera — both regaining strength from core muscle surgery and dealing with a right ankle issue — was not himself, but he battled through it. Now that the Tigers' offseason is underway, president and GM Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday...

Dave Dombrowski: Decision has not been made about whether Miguel Cabrera will have surgery

Cabrera hit .313 with 25 home runs, 109 RBIs and an .895 OPS in 2014 despite battling ankle issues. DETROIT -- It is not 100 percent clear whether or not Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera will have offseason surgery. Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday afternoon that a final decision has not yet been made about whether Cabrera will have surgery to repair bone spurs in his right ankle. Dombrowski addressed the issue during his annual end-of-the-season press conference. Buster Olney of ESPN reported in early September that Cabrera...

Victor Martinez is the Tigers' 2014 MVP

Don't overthink it. Sometimes, baseball writers will try to out-smart themselves when looking for an MVP or Cy Young award winner. They will look at numerous stats (or ignore them completely) and often lose sight of the big picture. This is not one of those times. Victor Martinez was the Tigers' Most Valuable Player in 2014. Could you make a case for someone else? Sure. Ian Kinsler led the team with 5.5 WAR. Miguel Cabrera was right on his heels with 5.4 WAR. Cabrera led the team with 109 RBI and, despite his injuries, still ended the year with a 147 wRC+. J.D. Martinez came out of nowhere...

Miguel Cabrera, Mike Stanton, and fake mega-trades

How many of the six players the Marlins received from the Tigers for Miguel Cabrera do you remember? What if we tried to replicate that deal with the Twins and another young, incredible hitter? In December of 2007, the Tigers and the Marlins made one hell of a trade. The Tigers received 24-year old Miguel Cabrera, a .313/.388/.542 hitter in parts of five seasons, as well as Dontrelle Willis, a 25-year old left-handed pitcher whose performance had nose-dived and would be a heavy salary for Florida going forward. Who did Detroit end up sending back to the Marlins - can you remember more...

Miguel Cabrera plays central role in Tigers' Game 2 loss

When the Detroit Tigers last came to Baltimore in May, right fielder Torii Hunter left firmly ensconced as the chief villain in road grays. Miguel Cabrera, the two-time reigning American League MVP, took up that mantel during the ALDS.

Altuve receives call of congratulations from MLB’s last Triple Crown winner

The American League batting champion was feted in a small, sponsored event Tuesday at Minute Maid Park, two days after he ended the regular season with a major league-best .341 average. Altuve said Victor Martinez, the runner-up in the race, and Miguel Cabrera — both excellent players who, like Altuve, come from Venezuela — called […]
