Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has three-hit afternoon.
Insight: Cabrera is now 4-for-7 in the series with a homer and two runs scored. The reigning two-time MVP may need to think about pitching out of the bullpen for Detroit, as the team's relievers are the biggest reason why the Tigers are on the brink of elimination.
 
10/2/2014 9:38:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera hits first homer of ALDS.
Insight: It was a big homerun at the time, as he cut Baltimore's lead to 4-3 during the top of the eighth inning. However, the Tigers imploded in the bottom half of the inning, making the homer moot. Cabrera is still one of the most feared hitters in baseball.
 
10/2/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera is a career 5-for-13 (.385) with a home run and four RBI against Baltimore right-hander Chris Tillman.
Insight: So what else is new? Isn't Cabrera a .300 hitter against most everyone? His 2014 numbers were "just" .313 with 25 HR, 109 RBI and an .895 OPS. He's been just a .273 career hitter in the postseason with an .870 OPS and 26 walks as he gets pitched around more frequently.

Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera tried to single-handedly win the American League Central for Detriot on Friday.
Insight: Cabrera was animated on Friday as a victory and a Royals loss would have given the Tigers the division title. Cabrera went 3-for-4 with two RBI, which both came in the fifth inning as the Tigers cut into the Twins lead, 6-3. Just when it looked like the Tigers could come back, Minnesota scored four runs in the sixth and won, 11-4. If the Royals hold on to win on Friday, the Tigers will have just a game lead in the central with two to go.
 
9/25/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera clubs 24th homer of 2014.
Insight: It was a solo shot off Twins' starter Trevor May. Miggy now has 107 RBI on the year, in a somewhat "down" season.
 
9/23/2014 10:30:00 PM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera hit a walkoff single to score Ian Kinsler as Detroit defeated the Chicago White Sox, 4-3, on Tuesday.
Insight: The two-time AL MVP was 2-for-5 with one RBI, the game-winner. He was not able to repeat his 2012 and 2013 season this year, but he still has monster numbers, .314/.375/.520 with 23 home runs and 105 RBI.
 
Hot9/21/2014 9:51:00 AM
Description: Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has a juicy matchup Sunday afternoon against Kansas City.
Insight: He will be swinging against Jeremy Guthrie, whom he is 16-for-46 against (.340), with three homeruns and 12 RBI. Miggy has been on fire of late, and could be carrying you to a fantasy title.
 
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.

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 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 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.
