Miguel Cabrera placed on 10-day DL with groin strain

The Tigers have placed Miguel Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list with a groin strain. John Hicks was called up from Triple-A to replace Cabrera on the Tigers roster.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera hurt his groin fielding a ground ball on Friday night and was sent for an MRI on Saturday. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but the MRI results obviously showed something significant enough to immediately place Cabrera on the disabled list. With the new 10-day rule, teams appear more willing to make quick DL moves, so let's hope this is a relatively minor strain and that Cabrera will be back within two weeks.

Miguel Cabrera has MRI on strained groin; out at least the weekend

Miguel Cabrera left Friday night's game against the Twins with a groin injury. Cabrera has undergone an MRI, and the Tigers are waiting for the results. Brad Ausmus said that regardless of the results, Cabrera will not play the rest of the weekend.

Fantasy Impact

The slugging first baseman has battled injuries several times already this season, mostly lower back stiffness. This injury, which happened on a ground ball, appears more serious. Cabrera had just started to heat up, raising his batting average from .107 to .268 in his last eight games. At this point, all fantasy owners can do is wait and hope for the best.

Miguel Cabrera in lineup for Tuesday's game

Miguel Cabrera is in the Tigers' lineup for their Tuesday game against the Rays. Cabrera is batting third and playing first base, as usual.

Fantasy Impact

Cabrera left Sunday's game with back tightness, but it looks like that was just a precautionary move. Cabrera is off to a slow start this season, with just a .220 batting average with two home runs and six RBIs, though the entirety of his home run and RBI production has come in the last four games. Hopefully, Cabrera can keep his recent hot streak going.

Miguel Cabrera considered day-to-day

Miguel Cabrera is considered day-to-day after exiting a weekend game due to back tightness.

Fantasy Impact

It doesn't appear that this will keep him sidelined for an extended stretch, but it's certainly worth monitoring considering his slow start. Cabrera is considered a viable buy-low candidate, but given his age and this back issue owners are facing an even greater risk/reward scenario.

Miguel Cabrera hits first home run of season

Miguel Cabrera went 1-for-2 with his first home run of the season during the Tigers 11-5 loss to Minnesota. He also walked once and scored twice in the game.

Fantasy Impact

It was nice to see Miggy get his first home run of the season after belting 38 last season. In nine games this season he has gone just 4-for-30 but as he showed against the Twins he is capable of exploding offensively at any time.
