Tigers Injury Update: Miguel Cabrera still experiencing hamstring tightness

By on 6/10/2014 05:00:00 PM

Detroit Tigers All-Star slugger Miguel Cabrera was forced to leave Sunday night's games against the Boston Red Sox after injuring his hamstring. This occurred when Cabrera singled in the bottom of the sixth inning. He was on his way to first he was visibly in pain. Cabrera was replaced by utility player Don Kelly. Jason Beck reported this on Sunday night.

The Tigers announced that Cabrera would be day-to-day because of left hamstring tightness.
If you remember last year, Cabrera had a hamstring issue that placed him on the DL for quite some time, however, that was his right hamstring. On Sunday it was his left, so nothing to worry about there. Cabrera said this to James Schmehl.

After a poor start of the 2014 season, the two-time reigning MVP has returned to top form. He is currently hitting .329 with 12 home runs and 52 RBI's through 60 games. On Monday, Cabrera played DH and Victor Martinez took the first base role. Cabrera looked great and went 2-4 with a home run. The Tigers should remain atop of the American League Central as long as Cabrera makes a speedy recovery and as long as the bullpen steps it up somehow. Cabrera could win three MVP's in a row if he finished the rest of the season strong. If he achieved that he would be the first player to do so since Barry Bonds took home four consecutive MVP's from 2001-2004.
