Miguel Cabrera's health leaves a dark cloud over Tigers' pennant push

Nothing about his situation in 2014 has been clear or clearly explained. What we know is a superstar who has won three consecutive batting championships and who bashed 44 home runs in each of the past two seasons is today batting .300 with 17 home runs. He has not been right for months. His swings have been uncharacteristically off-key. His power has all but vanished to the left-side pull field. His strikeouts have mounted.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said he spoke with Miguel Cabrera a few days ago about the possibility of sitting him down for four or five days to see whether it would help his lingering right ankle issue. CHICAGO -- Miguel Cabrera was in no mood to discuss his lingering right ankle injury, which forced him to make an early exit from the second game of a doubleheader Saturday night. But manager Brad Ausmus discussed it at length. Ausmus said he recently discussed the idea of giving Cabrera four or five consecutive days off to rest the ankle. He said that could still...

Miguel Cabrera left the game in the fourth inning after apparently aggravating a nagging right ankle injury. CHICAGO -- The Detroit Tigers won the game. Miguel Cabrera was not around to see the end of it. Kyle Ryan threw six shutout innings in his major-league debut Saturday night as the Tigers earned an 8-4 victory to earn a split of their doubleheader with the Chicago White Sox.

Cabrera went 0 for 3 in the game and has one hit in his past 19 at-bats. His batting average fell to .299, which marked the first time since May 16 that he has finished a game with his batting average under .300.

There was no...

Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera continues to struggle, Max Scherzer pays for mistakes in loss

The reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner both struggled Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader. CHICAGO -- The Detroit Tigers dropped a game to the Chicago White Sox after taking an early three-run lead. The reigning American League Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award winner both played a part in the loss. Miguel Cabrera singled to lead off the eighth inning, but that hit ended an 0-for-15 streak for him dating back to the Yankees series earlier this week at Comerica Park. Max Scherzer had excellent stuff, but a handful of offspeed pitches...

Abreu not in Cabrera's league just yet

CHICAGO – Some similarities between Chicago White Sox rookie Jose Abreu and the Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera were evident Friday, but it was their differences that seemed most apparent. It was earlier this week when Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona noted parallels between Abreu and what he remembered of an emerging Cabrera. He was clear not to say they compare right now, since Abreu is five months into his major league career and Cabrera has won the last two MVP awards, picking up a rare triple crown in the process.
