Miguel Cabrera News
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (groin) is back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox. He left during Tuesday's game due to groin tightness, but it sounds like he's ready to play again. He'll bat third against right-hander Lance Lynn on Thursday. Cabrera has been horrendous at the plate and is not a recommended fantasy option in any formats right now. We all know he's a Hall of Fame player, but time catches up to everyone. Fantasy managers can go ahead and avoid Cabrera against Lynn.
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (groin) exited Tuesday's contest early due to tightness in his left groin, according to Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press. The move was made as a precaution according to the team, as Cabrera had gone 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored against the Brewers prior to the exit. Cabrera has struggled at the plate this year with a .184/.263/.279 triple-slash line, but he has heated up a bit at the plate recently, slashing .253/.329/.333 with two home runs, 12 RBI and six runs scored over his last 20 games. Despite the recent uptick in production, Cabrera is really only an option in very deep-mixed leagues and deep AL-only formats.
Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is getting the day off on Thursday as the team faces Shane Bieber and the Cleveland Indians. Jonathan Schoop is covering first base while Willi Castro is filling in as the team's designated hitter. Cabrera got off to a rough start to the year, but he's started to come around a bit in May. He was on a six-game hitting streak before going 0-for-3 in Wednesday's game. He's slashing .241/.310/.316 over the month of May as a whole. Fantasy managers in deep leagues and AL-only leagues should keep an eye on him, but shallow league managers can allow him to remain on waivers.
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.
