Tigers' Cabrera may need surgery

The SportsXchange

Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera, who was hampered by several injuries this season, may need surgery to repair a groin strain, general manager Dave Dombrowski said Monday.

Dombrowski said Cabrera was dealing with a Grade 2-3 groin strain through the late stages of the season. Cabrera will see a specialist and may need surgery this offseason.

It is unclear whether surgery could prevent him from being available for spring training or the start of the 2014 regular season.

Cabrera, 30, hit .348 with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs during the regular season, and he is a candidate to repeat as the American League MVP.

In 11 postseason games, Cabrera hit .262 with two home runs and nine strikeouts, and he appeared to be inhibited by his injuries.
