Found April 26, 2013 on Fox Sports Detroit:
PLAYERS: Miguel Cabrera
TEAMS: Detroit Tigers
"Have I said I like to dip?" That might not have been Miguel Cabrera's exact line in his FOX Sports Detroit commercial, but it is a fitting substitute. The defending AL MVP and Triple Crown winner is getting his own brand of salsa. Miggy's Salsa, which comes in mild, medium and hot, will be on sale at Meijer stores in Detroit, Lansing, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, and can also be purchased as www.plbsports.com. A portion of the proceeds of the limited-time sale will go to the Miguel Cabrera Foundation.

DETROIT -- There was a silver lining to Detroit's rainy, extra-inning loss Thursday afternoon -- Justin Verlander is fine.

Tigers go back to Pappa

Tigers' bats too much for Braves

Omar Infante and Jhonny Peralta both hit two-run homers, and Rick Porcello bounced back from a nightmarish start last weekend to pitch into the seventh inning, helping the Detroit Tigers to a 7-4 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.
