Miguel Cabrera is dealing with a multitude of injuries, but that is not stopping the Detroit Tigers slugger. He is determined play and will continue to do so.
The Venezuelan MLB player is determined, despite what others are saying about him. Read on to see why Miguel Cabrera is such a die-hard baseball player…
LatinoAthlete.com has learned that Miguel Cabrera is dealing with a few issues, such as; a back injury, oblique and groin injuries.
As of yesterday, Cabrera added a hip flexor issue to his IR. His latino pride is apparently in the way because he is insisting that he will play on. The Detroit Tigers first baseman said after his team’s 5-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday:
“I’ve been struggling, but I always stay positive.”
That is great that he stays positive, but positivity doesn’t heal injuries that continue to stack up.
We guess his uplifting spirits and the mind over matter technique is working since his team won 5-3 over the Tampa Bay Rays yesterday. The 34-year-old veteran baller lead in that game with a game-winning two-run home run in the ninth inning, his first long-ball since May 20.
Miguel has been doing very well this year despite the injuries. He has been batting a respectable .280 this season, but has just six home runs and 31 RBI.
Here is what the two-time MVP and 11-time All-Star, Cabrera had to say about his stats/position on the playing field:
“No, no, no. I played with a broken foot. If I’m able to go out there and do my job, I’m going to do it.”
On the flip side of things, the Detroit Tigers have missed a golden opportunity to take over the American League Central. The Tigers are not happy with the teams stats since Detroit’s stats are 13-17. When compared to other ALC teams like the Minnesota Twins, they’ve gone 15-15, and the Cleveland Indians have gone 14-16.
With that said the Tigers are blaming Cabrera playing through with injuries. He may have hit a homer, but that doesn’t mean he’s 100 % ready these days. His injuries all include pain, so he might be a 70% if he’s lucky.
The Tigers are blaming various things like a leaky bullpen; an under-performing rotation; and a disappointing lineup, and Miguel Cabrera’s injuries.
We will see how this plays out for Miguel. Get well soon.
