Cabrera, Iglesias question marks for Tigers ahead of spring training

The Tigers don't know what slugger Miguel Cabrera will be able to provide this upcoming season. What they do know is that Cabrera has a very high pain tolerance.

WATCH: Miguel Cabrera throws ball to Megatron in stands

Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera always has fun when he’s on the diamond. When he’s not crushing home runs and racking up RBIs, he’s making his teammates and everyone around him laugh.

Miguel Cabrera bobblehead features small error

The Colorado Rockies are no longer the only MLB team that’s messed up on promotional items this season. In the Detroit Tigers’ defense, at least Miguel Cabrera’s name was spelled correctly — unlike Troy Tulowitzki and Nolan Arenado — on the bobblehead given out before Friday night’s game against the Mariners.

Detroit Tigers rumors: Ben Zobrist edition

Don’t look now, but the Detroit Tigers are in second place. For a team with World Series hopes, second place in the lately-pitiful AL Central simply won’t cut it. Owner Mike Ilitch has opened up his wallet in recent years, and GM Dave Dombrowski is certainly always looking to wheel and deal. His track record thus far has been sterling: he’s lured players like Miguel Cabrera...
