Miguel Cabrera injury update: Tigers slugger appears to be on schedule with rehab

Cabrera recently tweeted a picture of himself without his walking boot, but the club remains cautious about his timeline. While Tigers Twitter has been abuzz with plenty of trade rumors and free agent fodder over the past few days, the best news they will receive this week came far away from any GM meetings.

How does Giancarlo Stanton's new contract compare to Miguel Cabrera's mega-deal?

Last winter the Tigers locked up Miguel Cabrera for life. How does his contract compare with Giancarlo Stanton's extension? At the 2007 winter meetings, Dave Dombrowski recognized an opportunity. Miguel Cabrera was a 24-year-old veteran with five years under his belt. Cabrera had not yet ripped the title of "Best Hitter on the Planet" from Albert Pujols, but he had three consecutive seasons with an OPS+ of 150 in his early 20's.
