Found October 22, 2013 on Sports Injury Alert:
Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers did not want a diagnosis until after the season had concluded.  So they didn’t look too deeply at Cabrera’s groin, hip, and abdominal problems.  However, once the Boston Red Sox knocked them out of the ALCS, it was time to figure out the severity of Cabrera’s injury.  He has now been diagnosed with a groin tear and may need surgery.
