Hot9/8/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went deep on Sunday, driving in three runs, to lead the Tigers over the Giants, 6-1.
Insight: The 2-for-4 night extended Cabrera's hitting streak to eight games. He has 22 home runs and 100 RBI on the season while batting .310. Cabrera has been battling bone spurs in his ankle, but that has not effected him at the plate in his last seven games. The first baseman was 15-for-30 with five home runs and nine RBI last week.
 
Hot9/7/2014 9:48:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is a career .429 hitter against Giants right-hander Tim Hudson, but he's never taken him deep.
Insight: He's on a seven-game hitting streak. Cabrera has 21 homers and 97 RBI after blasting two long balls Saturday. That would be impressive for most hitters, but Miggy isn't most hitters. He's coming off a .348, 44 HR, 137 RBI season in 2013 and these new numbers pale compared to last season.
 
9/6/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera clubbed a pair of home runs Saturday afternoon, but it wasn't enough to get the Tigers the win.
Insight: Cabrera now has 21 homers and 97 RBI. That would be impressive for most hitters, but Miggy isn't most hitters. He's coming off a .348, 44 HR, 137 RBI season in 2013 and these new numbers pale compared to last season.
 
Hot9/2/2014 11:28:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-5 with a double in Detroit's victory over Cleveland on Tuesday.
Insight: So much for being hurt. Cabrera has eight hits in his last 10 at-bats, including three home runs, a double, three RBI and four runs. He is carrying the Tigers just when they need him to and likely doing the same for your fantasy team.
 
9/1/2014 8:06:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with two home runs, three RBI and four runs Monday at Cleveland.
Insight: Cabrera went 5-for-35 (.143) in his last eight games of August and didn't hit a homer in his last 27 games of the month. He also sat out Sunday due to an ankle injury. By the standard Cabrera set the past two seasons, a .304 average, 19 homers, 94 RBI and .868 OPS are disappointing.
 
9/1/2014 1:44:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera did not play Sunday, but fantasy owners hope he returns for Monday's favorable matchup with Corey Kluber.
Insight: The two-time MVP is a career .536 hitter (15-for-28) with three homers and seven RBI against the Cleveland right-hander. And the wind will be blowing out to right at 11 mph too. Update: Cabrera will be the DH, so make sure he's in your lineup.

Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera did not play Sunday, but fantasy owners hope he returns for Monday's favorable matchup with Corey Kluber.
Insight: The two-time MVP is a career .536 hitter (15-for-28) with three homers and seven RBI against the Cleveland right-hander. And the wind will be blowing out to right at 11 mph too.
 
8/30/2014 9:00:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera left the second game of the doubleheader after reinjuring the right ankle that has bothered him for a while.
Insight: The two-time MVP was 1-for-4 in the afternoon and 0-for-3 in the nightcap before yielding way. His average has dipped to under .300, an area he hasn't seen for a long time.
 
8/28/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is 5-for-12 (.417) with a pair of home runs versus Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda.
Insight: The two-time MVP has a seven-game hitting streak despite nursing a sore ankle. He's batting .307 with 17 home runs, 90 RBI and an .872 OPS this season. Good for most players, but a bit of a disappointment for Cabrera owners. He's got a nice matchup Thursday.
 
8/26/2014 4:19:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (right ankle) was not in Sunday's starting lineup, but is back on the lineup card for Tuesday's game against the NY Yankees.
Insight: The two-time MVP has a modest five game hitting streak. He's batting .308 with 17 home runs, 88 RBI and an .876 OPS this season.
 
8/26/2014 9:50:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (right ankle) was not in Sunday's starting lineup, but is probable for Tuesday's game against the NY Yankees.
Insight: We'd call this an "off" year for the two-time MVP, batting .308 with 17 home runs, 88 RBI and an .876 OPS this season, but most mortals would love to be able to produce at this level.
 
8/24/2014 1:28:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is not in Sunday's starting lineup
Insight: he's been dealing with a sore ankle and Saturday's doubleheader may have been too much. We'd call this an "off" year for the two-time MVP, batting .308 with 17 home runs, 88 RBI and an .876 OPS this season.
 
8/17/2014 10:21:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is a career .167 hitter (2-for-12) versus Seattle right-hander Chris Young.
Insight: We only know a few pitchers who can consistently get Cabrera out and Young is one of them. Its hard to imagine, but we'd call this an "off" year for the two-time MVP, batting .311 with 17 home runs, 86 RBI and an .887 OPS this season.
 
8/7/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is not in Thursday's starting lineup against Shane Greene and the New York Yankees.
Insight: He can probably use a day off. Cabrera has played 110 of 111 games this season and has batted just .256 over the past 11 games. He's still hitting .310 with 17 home runs, 84 RBI and an .893 OPS this season, though after two straight MVP seasons, we were expecting more.
 
8/6/2014 12:45:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has slammed four homers and batted .391 in his career against Yankees starter Chris Capuano.
Insight: Cabrera is 9-for-23 against Capuano. He's hit .311 with 17 home runs, 83 RBI and an .893 OPS this season, slightly underwhelming numbers after two straight MVP seasons.
 
7/23/2014 8:40:00 PM
Description: Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a homer, three RBI and two runs Wednesday at Arizona.
Insight: It was his first homer of July. Cabrera has batted .315 with 80 RBI and 61 runs this season, but he's on pace for 25 home runs, down from 44 in each of the past two years. It would be his lowest total since he hit 12 in 314 at-bats as a rookie.
 
7/19/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera is 12-for-24 with three homers and a 1.455 OPS versus Cleveland right-hander Corey Kluber.
Insight: Cabrera is hitting .308 with 34 doubles, 14 homers, 75 RBI and an .899 OPS this season, but has struggled of late batting just .267 with an .817 OPS over the past four weeks. We expect more for him. We could get it on Saturday.
 
Cold7/13/2014 5:19:00 PM
Description: For the third time since June 27, Miguel Cabrera has gone three straight games without getting a hit.
Insight: Prior to June 27, he hadn't gone more than two games all season without getting a hit all season. In fact, he only went more than two games without getting a hit one time all of last season, and one of those games he exited with an injury before getting an at-bat. Despite the cold streak to end the first half, Cabrera is hitting .306 with 34 doubles, 14 homers, 75 RBI and an .898 OPS this season.
 
7/9/2014 12:30:00 PM
Description: Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera is getting the day off Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Cabrera has gone three games in a row without getting a hit twice since June 27 after not going more than two without one at any point this season, but he went 3-for-5 with a triple, two RBI and two runs Tuesday to snap a 0-for-9 stretch.
 
7/6/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera is a woeful 1-for-14 (.071) lifetime against Rays left-hander David Price.
Insight: Well, if you didn't believe there was a pitcher who could own Cabrera so thoroughly, here's the proof. Miggy has a measly single and has struck out six times against Price in 14 at-bats. But, it's not really too advisable to bench the game's premiere hitter, especially as he's coming off back-to-back hitless games.
