Should Miguel Cabrera take some time off?

Does Miguel Cabrera need to take some time off to rest? I'm not sold on that idea, but I don't want to see him step foot near first base again. It's no secret that Miguel Cabrera was not playing at 100 percent of his normal ability through the stretch run last year. Hobbled by nagging injuries, Cabrera limped into the playoffs as arguably less than half of his normal self. From Aug. 27 until Sept. 28 — his last 25 games of the season — Cabrera hit .284/.396/.333 with only one home run and two extra-base hits. Even with his defense limited, he was the designated hitter in only one of...

Analysis: Excellent offensive showing doesn't mean Miguel Cabrera's ankle concerns are behind him

Tigers fans can only hope the good days outnumber the bad down the stretch, that they will see more of the Cabrera they saw in one day in September than they saw in 31 days in August. CLEVELAND -- The Miguel Cabrera situation is status quo. Except for the impressive performance he had Monday afternoon, of course. Cabrera had his best game in months and one of his best games of the season Monday in Detroit's 12-1 rout of the Cleveland Indians. But while that was definitely a good sign for the Tigers, his ankle situation is unlikely to change anytime...

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.

Brad Ausmus expects Miguel Cabrera's ankle injury to linger, is unsure break would help it heal

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.

Tigers 8, White Sox 4: Kyle Ryan throws six shutout innings for Detroit in MLB debut

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. The White Sox rallied for a 6-3 win in the first game. The Tigers held a 5-0 lead before the White Sox roughed up the Tigers bullpen for four runs in the eighth inning. But J.D....

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. CHICAGO -- Miguel Cabrera is clearly bothered by his right ankle. It appears that the ankle forced him to leave the game early Saturday night.
