Found October 17, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Wait, he’s hurt?  Sure, his .257/.297/.429 line may not look great, but Miguel Cabrera can still do some damage.  His six RBI this postseason have also put him alone at the top of a very special list in Detroit.  Cabrera now owns the Tigers’ all-time postseason RBI record. Jason Beck of MLB.com says Cabrera’s two RBI last night pushed him past Hank Greenberg for the top spot.  Obviously the playoff format is more advantageous for Cabrera than it ever was for Greenberg, but it’s still an impressive accomplishment.  Especially considering Cabrera’s health.  The slugger continues to show signs of obvious pain in every game he plays. With Cabrera’s help, the Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox to even the series at two game apiece.  The Tigers will need similar production from Cabrera going forward if they are going to be able to win two more games and make the World Series for a second-consecutive year.  However, Cabrera’s performance so far has been gutty and more than many stars can even muster when healthy. The 2012 AL MVP and Triple Crown winner will likely win another MVP this season.  He came dangerously close to winning a second-consecutive Triple Crown (something no one else has ever done), but Cabrera had to settle for a monster season without the TC.

Miguel Cabrera ignores third base coach’s stop sign, gets gunned out by a mile

Miguel Cabrera, not known for being the speediest runner on the basepaths, ignored his third base coach’s stop signal and attempted to score on a first inning single to left field during Thursday’s Game 5 in Detroit. Did I mention that he’s not very fast? Miggy wound up getting gunned out at the plate…pretty much by a mile…by Jonny Gomes in left. The play wound up being...

Miguel Cabrera's Impressive Streak Ends

With three home runs in Game Six of the 1977 World Series, Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson was dubbed “Mr. October”.  But for the last ten years, you could almost call Miguel Cabrera by the same name. Until Tuesday night. With an 0-for-4 performance against the Boston Red Sox, the Detroit Tigers All-Star saw his streak of reaching base in an MLB-record 31-straight postseason...

Detroit Runs Away With Game Four; Ties ALCS at 2-2

Miguel Cabrera got an easy steal in the fourth and while the game was anything but a steal it was a pretty easy win for the Detroit Tigers. A 5-run second inning gave the Tigers an early comfortable lead that they never lost. They tacked on another pair of runs in the fourth for a 7-0 lead. Boston would make it look a little better by tacking on a run in the 6th, 7th, and...

Miguel Cabrera steals a base, and does so rather easily

This is what it looks like when Miguel Cabrera steals a base on Brandon Workman in the fourth inning of ALCS Game 4. Miggy is by no means the speediest of baserunners, but Workman completely ignored his presence on first base. Not even a throw from Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The post Miguel Cabrera steals a base, and does so rather easily appeared first on The Nosebleeds.

Bunt on Miggy? Here's why you don't

Because of Miguel Cabrera’s limited mobility at third at first blush you would think the Red Sox would be bunting early and often on the Tigers’ third baseman. So why haven’t the Red Sox been doing so? Take a look at where Cabrera has been setting up Sox manager John Farrell said. “Against the guys who are bunting threats he has been damn near even with the mound’...

Little mistakes costly in Tigers' loss to Red Sox

DETROIT -- There's so little margin for error in the postseason so when you do make mistakes, they can hurt you. The Tigers dropped Game 5 of the ALCS, 4-3, to the Boston Red Sox mostly due to a few costly mistakes and now face elimination as they trail the series 3-2. The first one came right away, when the Tigers were threatening in the first inning. With two outs, Miguel...

Jonny Gomes Throws Out Miguel Cabrera At Home, Prevents Tigers From Scoring in 1st Inning of Game 5 (GIF)

Poor baserunning is one way to drive baseball managers crazy. With men on first and second and two outs in the bottom half of the first inning, the Detroit Tigers had a golden opportunity to open up an early lead on the Boston Red Sox in the crucial Game 5 of the ALCS. Instead, the Tigers got no runs because Cabrera chose to run home from second on a single by Jhonny Peralta despite...

John Farrell Says Bunting on Miguel Cabrera ‘Not That Easy’

Why don’t they just bunt it down the third base line? Admit it, Red Sox fans. You thought this, said this and probably even yelled this at some point during the Tigers’ pitching dominance in Games 1 and 2 of the ALCS. And hey, it’s a perfectly reasonable question given how hobbled Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera has looked at times this postseason. But bunting for a base...

Tigers stars swing and miss, Bosox take ALCS lead

The Detroit Tigers had it set up perfectly: Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder coming to the plate with a chance to tie the game, or even take the lead. And then, nothing. Cabrera and Fielder both struck out swinging with runners at the corners to end the eighth inning as the Boston Red Sox held on to beat the Tigers 1-0 Tuesday for a 2-1 lead in the AL championship series. After...

Tigers on brink of elimination after Boston wins

Miguel Cabrera hobbled through a stop sign, gently colliding with the catcher for an easy out at home. Anibal Sanchez showed none of his no-hit stuff, Detroit's first shaky outing from its rotation in the AL championship series. And yet the Comerica Park crowd had a chance to roar Thursday night when Prince Fielder came to the plate in the fifth and seventh innings. But each...
