Tigers Injury Update: Miguel Cabrera exits with hamstring tightness

By on 6/09/2014 07:30:00 AM

Miguel Cabrera left Sunday’s game against the Red Sox in the bottom of the sixth inning due to left hamstring tightness. He is considered day-to-day, according to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald

Cabrera looked uncomfortable running to first after singling on a 2-out pitch off of John Lackey and also looked he was in pain when he doubled and scored in the fourth inning. The injury is not considered serious, but they could give him a day or two for rest.

This season, Cabrera has a line of .326/.377/.564 with 11 home runs, 51 RBI, 20 walks, 41 strikeouts, and a .941 OPS in 59 games. He has a WAR of 2.3 and a 153 wRC+. He is trying to win three AL MVPs in a row.

In 2013, Cabrera had a slash of .348/.442/.636 with 44 home runs, 137 RBI, 90 walks, 94 strikeouts, and a .932 OPS in 148 games. He had WAR of 7.6 and a 192 wRC+.

The Tigers sit at 33-26 and in first place in the American League Central division. The Indians are 3 games back. The rest of the division are no more than 5.5 games back. The division is much tougher this season for Detroit, so they might be lucky to get home field advantage for the AL playoffs.
