Update (11:08 PM ET): MLive’s Evan Woodbery reports that Cabrera ruptured a tendon in his bicep and will undergo season-ending surgery.
Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera had to leave Tuesday night’s game against the Twins after appearing to injure his arm during a swing in the third inning. Cabrera swung and missed at a 1-1 slider from Jake Odorizzi. According to Dan Hayes of The Athletic, Cabrera grabbed his left arm above the elbow and walked back to the dugout. Niko Goodrum pinch-hit for Cabrera, swinging and missing for the third strike.
Cabrera, 35, was activated from the disabled list on June 1 after recovering from a strained right hamstring. It was his second stint on the DL this season. In 155 plate appearances entering Tuesday’s action, the veteran was hitting .301/.394/.451 with three home runs and 22 RBI.
The Tigers should have an update on Cabrera’s status later tonight.
