Cabrera suffered a biceps injury during an at-bat in the third inning. He walked off the field and an MRI later revealed he ruptured a biceps tendon, which would require season-ending surgery.
Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown in 2012. One year later, he earned a 2nd straight MVP and posted the best OPS (1.078) of his Hall of Fame-bound career. As recently as three years ago, he was a batting champion (for the 4th time). Now his season is over after 38 games.— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) June 13, 2018
Everyone worried about Miguel Cabrera’s back. Instead it has been a biceps, hamstring, and now a torn biceps that have ravaged his 2018.— Lynn G. Henning (@Lynn_Henning) June 13, 2018
Would not be shocked if the Tigers contemplate Nick Castellanos as a potential answer at 1B. They have an outfield glut. Simple math.— Lynn G. Henning (@Lynn_Henning) June 13, 2018
Not sure what Tigers will do long-term in 2018 to replace Cabrera, but Christin Stewart isn’t an option. He’s an OF replacement, only.— Lynn G. Henning (@Lynn_Henning) June 13, 2018
Bartolo rocked, Miguel Cabrera done for the year, and Adrian Beltre looking rather mortal in turning a Bellinger checked swing into a double. Getting old sucks— Jay Jaffe (@jay_jaffe) June 13, 2018
JD Martinez texted Miguel Cabrera his well wishes postgame after hearing Cabrera will miss the rest of the season.— Chris Cotillo (@ChrisCotillo) June 13, 2018
