Miguel Cabrera's scorching hot at the plate again, and others are taking notice

Cabrera has five home runs in the last four games, including two on Monday in the Tigers 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. DETROIT -- Emerging from a postgame workout Monday night, there stood a group of reporters waiting on Miguel Cabrera. So, too, was a special present: the second-base bag from the field at Comerica Park to commemorate his 500th career double. "Just put it back there," said Cabrera, pointing to his stall inside the Detroit Tigers' clubhouse. The Tigers won again Monday night, edging the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4, and they have Cabrera to...

Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera is far from washed up

Cabrera is on a wicked tear and opposing pitchers should be terrified. DETROIT -- The Miguel Cabrera that fans have seen for the last three years was a hitter to be feared. And he wasn't even healthy. Who he is now should be downright terrifying to opposing pitchers. Not since he won the Triple Crown in 2012 has Cabrera looked as powerful as he does right now. Cabrera is on some kind of special tear. Not even a hit by a pitch in his knee on Sunday could slow him down. But two weeks ago there was talk that Cabrera, struggling to get hits for power, was done. Washed up. Finito. Cabrera's only...

Phillies lose to Tigers as Cabrera belts two homers

DETROIT - The Phillies hoped that Miguel Cabrera's sore knee would keep him out of the lineup Monday night. Even a one-game absence by Detroit's slugging first baseman would be a welcome respite.

Tigers 5, Phillies 4: Miguel Cabrera's 2-homer day powers Detroit to slim win

Pelfrey was a hot mess, but at least the bullpen was dependable. DETROIT -- Mike Pelfrey was no help to the Detroit Tigers but four home runs by the offense were just enough to push for a win. Backed by a strong outing and two homers from Miguel Cabrera, the Tigers won 5-4 over the Philadelphia Phillies in the interleague series opener. Another night, another poor start from Mike Pelfrey. This time he got bit by the long ball and the Tigers offense nearly didn't save his bacon. He still doesn't have a coveted win as a Tiger, and while he went six innings on the night and didn't walk a...

Miguel Cabrera homers twice as Tigers slug their way to win over Phillies

Detroit hit four home runs in a 5-4 win on Monday, its seventh in the last eight games. DETROIT -- No need to worry about Miguel Cabrera's knee. Or this offense. The Detroit Tigers slugger hit two more home runs Monday, a day after he was knocked out of a game with a left knee contusion, in a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies before 26,400 at Comerica Park. Winners of seven of their last eight games, the Tigers (21-21) totaled 12 hits and four home runs, including three solo blasts in the fifth inning. They are .500 again for the first time since May...

Detroit Tigers notes: Miguel Cabrera, Cameron Maybin share weekly AL honors

The two shared AL player of the week honors, announced Monday by Major League Baseball. DETROIT -- It's not often two players from the same team share accolades. But Miguel Cabrera and Cameron Maybin were both named co-American League players of the week on Monday, it was announced by Major League Baseball. "I don't know if I've ever seen it before, but I think they're both deserving," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. It was the 14th player of the week honor for Cabrera, who was .500 (11-for-22) with three home runs, a triple, six RBIs and six runs...

Tigers lineup: Miguel Cabrera playing first base in series opener vs. Phillies

The Tigers have won six of their last seven games. DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera appears to be fine. A day after taking a baseball off the knee, the Detroit Tigers first baseman is back in the field and hitting in his usual No. 3 spot for the series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies at Comerica Park (7:10 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit). Cabrera (.315, nine home runs, 26 RBIs) was diagnosed with a left knee contusion after leaving Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays and was not available to reporters after. The rest of the lineup for Detroit (21-22) sits...

Tigers' bats explode but Miguel Cabrera, Jordan Zimmermann injured in win

Cabrera suffered a left knee contusion and Zimmermann a right groin strain. DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers feasted on Tampa Bay pitching Sunday and nobody had a bigger appetite than Miguel Cabrera. Cabrera had three hits, including a two-run homer, as the Tigers racked up 13 hits in a 9-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in the series finale at Comerica Park. But neither Cabrera nor starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann were around at the end of the game after both were injured in the seventh inning. Cabrera suffered a contusion on his left knee after being hit with a...

Miguel Cabrera leaves Tigers' game with knee contusion after being hit by pitch

Cabrera had three hits, including his ninth home run, before being taken out. DETROIT - First Jordan Zimmermann, then Miguel Cabrera. The Detroit Tigers slugger joined starting pitcher Zimmermann in the clubhouse early after getting hit on the left leg by a pitch from Dana Eveland to start the seventh inning Sunday. Cabrera was hit with the first pitch on the outside of his leg just below the knee. He hobbled near the Rays on-dick circle before being examined by trainer Kevin Rand. He stayed in the game for two more pitches before Jose Iglesias was sent in to...

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera exits game after HBP to his left knee

Cabrera is the second player to exit with an injury on Sunday. DETROIT -- First, Jordan Zimmermann left the game with a right groin strain. Then, Miguel Cabrera had to leave for a left knee bruise after he got hit by a pitch in the seventh inning. Jose Iglesias pinch ran for him. In the seventh inning to start the frame, Cabrera got hit just under his left knee. Head athletic trainer Kevin Rand paid a visit while Cabrera checked the knee, ran a bit, then jogged to first base. However, that trip lasted just two pitches into Victor Martinez's at-bat. Cabrera limped back to the dugout, and he...

Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann exits with right groin strain in 6th inning

Zimmermann had retired 12-of-13 batters to that point in the game. DETROIT -- Jordan Zimmermann had to be taken out of Sunday's game in the sixth inning for a right groin strain in the sixth inning. Drew VerHagen took over for him with two out and a runner on first. Zimmermann was cruising against the Tampa Bay Rays and had given up just one hit in his last 13 batters faced. After delivering a pitch to Steve Pearce, though, he suddenly grimaced and motioned to his groin, prompting Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus and head athletic trainer Kevin Rand to pay a visit. Not long after,...
