Found August 03, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Miguel Cabrera feels healthy enough to stay in the lineup, giving the Detroit Tigers a big sense of relief. The Tigers have Cabrera batting third and playing his usual spot at third base Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins. Cabrera aggravated a strain in his groin, abdominal and hip area when he swung and missed on a pitch Tuesday night. He walked off the field gingerly after his game-ending strikeout in a 6-3 loss to Minnesota. Tigers athletic trainer Kevin Rand says Cabrera was feeling much better Wednesday afternoon than he did Tuesday night. The reigning Triple Crown winner has been playing through a series of injuries lately, including a banged-up left knee and shin. Cabrera leads the majors in batting average (.359) and RBIs (120), and his 40 homers trail only Baltimore's Chris Davis (45).

Miguel Cabrera rejoins Tigers lineup after five-day absence

Miguel Cabrera is back at third base for the Tigers on Monday after resting an abdominal strain for five days.

Tigers reeling off wins, but they're still itching to get Cabrera back

The Tigers have won seven straight and 11 of their last 12 games but they’re still not playing at a peak level. Not without Miguel Cabrera.

With three home runs others are showing their power — and pitching is carrying the Tigers through the streak. But there’s no substitute for Cabrera...

Tigers beat White Sox, get perfect 8-0 homestand

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera and Torii Hunter were supposed to have the day off. Jhonny Peralta was supposed to be banned for baseball, and Tiger fans hadn't ever heard of Jose Iglesias a week ago.

Game 2013.108: White Sox at Tigers

62-45, 1st place, 3 games up on Cle. I’m going to make the bold claim that my son, and PHToy in HKs child, are the most spoiled Tigers fans out there. The Tigers are 10-2 in my little guy’s lifetime, and to be honest, he slept through most of those losses. And he’s also very curious as to who this “Miguel Cabrera” guy is that we won’t stop talking about. Miggy is not...
