Miguel Cabrera with a pair of RBIs in win

Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-3 with two RBIs in the 8-3 win over the Marlins today. He picked up his fourth RBI in Spring Training.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera will continue to be a focal point of the TIgers' offense this season. Even though 2017 was filled with injuries, the potential for him to turn things around is there.

Miguel Cabrera is looking like his old self once again

Lynn Henning is reporting that Miguel Cabrera is looking like his old self in camp and acting like it, too. Lynn is taking it a step further and could see Cabrera get close to winning his second Triple Crown this season at the age of 35. Cabrera played last season with two herniated discs in his back, while putting up a .249 batting average in 130 games played. In addition, he had 16 home runs and 60 RBI in 2017. Cabrera elected to not have surgery during the off-season to address his back issue. He goes through a daily routine that includes specific stretches for his back and all signs are pointing to him being in great shape.

Fantasy Impact

It is exciting to hear that Cabrera is looking and acting like his old self in camp. If one of the younger bats in the lineup or someone like a Nick Castellanos can help take some pressure off of Cabrera, we could see him getting back to the level of performance we expect out of the star infielder. He is currently being drafted near the eighth round in mock drafts and is worth taking a round or two earlier.

Miguel Cabrera has two herniated disc

Miguel Cabrera left Saturdays' game in the second inning due to lower back tightness. D MRI on Cabrera’s back indicated two herniated discs. Might play again this season depending on treatment, but likely just DH.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera is batting .249 on the season with 16 home runs, 60 RBIs, and 50 runs scored. This was certainly not one of his better seasons. His availability will most certainly be limited during the final stretch of the season. Fantasy owners should look for other options.

Miguel Cabrera batted third for the Tigers on Thursday. Cabrera went 1-for-2 and drew one walk.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera is having a very down year. His average is at .250 and he only has 16 home runs. All signs point to Cabrera being on the decline, quickly. Get rid of him.

Miguel Cabrera leaves game with injury

Miguel Cabrera left Saturday nights game with low back tightness and is listed day-to-day.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera may be held out of the line-up for a few days since the Tigers are not in playoff contention. He was batting .194 in the month of September with two home runs. Look for other options at first base.
