Miguel Cabrera News
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is getting the day off for the team's season finale against the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Harold Castro is getting the start at first base and batting third in the game. It was an historic year for Cabrera as he notched his 500th career home run. He ended the year with 15 home runs on the season and 502 for his career. Next year should be another milestone for him as he currently has 2,987 career hits, just 13 shy of joining the 3,000-hit club.
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (back) was removed from Monday's game against the Chicago White Sox after experiencing back tightness. He went 0-for-2 with an RBI in the game before being replaced by Harold Castro. After the game, Tigers manager A.J. Hinch told reporters that Cabrera's removal was precautionary and that he didn't believe the back injury was anything serious. The 38-year-old veteran has slashed .257/.318/.391 with 15 home runs, 71 RBI and 47 runs over 122 games this year. He should be considered day-to-day with a good chance of sitting out on Tuesday.
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is getting a breather for Thursday's game against Frankie Montas and the Oakland Athletics. Jonathan Schoop is covering first base in the game while Jeimer Candelario is filling in as designated hitter. Cabrera had a big game in the team's 8-6 win over the Athletics on Wednesday as he went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI. Over 107 games on the year, he's slashing .250/.315/.394 with 15 home runs, 61 RBI and 44 runs. Expect to see him back in the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Cincinnati Reds.
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera will likely be shining his plaque at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown shortly after his playing career is over. It's just a shame that his recent and likely future production will be a shell of what it used to be during his prime. After hitting just 15 home runs over 706 plate appearances from 2018-19, Cabrera hit 10 homers through just 231 plate appearances in 2020. It seems as if this perceived bump in power was a product of MLB's regional schedule, as four of them came against the rebuilding Kansas City Royals and another three against the Minnesota Twins. He played the majority of last year against teams with winning records, and his .234/.313/.345 slash line doesn't instill a ton of confidence with a full season currently on tap. The Tigers finished 2020 with a team wRC+ of 89 and a team on-base percentage of .303, both among the worst in baseball. Without a great offense around him and his own diminished performance, utility-only eligible Cabrera has become unrosterable in standard-sized leagues, which is why his ADP is all the way down to 494.
