Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Out of lineup with illness
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said that Cabrera isn't in the lineup for the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday against the Mets due to an illness, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Cabrera is usually in the lineup when southpaws are on the mound, but the illness helps explain while the future Hall of Famer is taking a seat for the first game of Wednesday's twin bill.

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Hits bench Sunday
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.
Cabrera has a clearer path to playing time at designated hitter with Kerry Carpenter (shoulder) recently landing on the injured list, but it comes as little surprise that the 40-year-old will take a seat for Sunday's matinee after he started in the second leg of Saturday's doubleheader. Nick Maton will serve as the Tigers' DH in Cabrera's stead.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Remains out Sunday
Cabrera is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.
Cabrera will sit for the second straight contest with Kerry Carpenter getting DH duties Sunday and batting in the cleanup spot. Cabrera has become a part-time player with diminished power at this point in his career, so his days of fantasy relevancy look to be behind him.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Returns to lineup Sunday
Cabrera is starting at designated hitter and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Red Sox.
Cabrera got the day off Saturday but will return Sunday. The veteran is off to a slow start, with just three hits in 17 at-bats so far. He should continue to receive regular days off moving forward, and his days as a fixture in the middle of the order are long gone.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Likely to play once in upcoming series
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said prior to Sunday's game against the Rays that Cabrera will likely play only once during the team's upcoming series against Houston, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Cabrera ended up starting in all three games versus Tampa Bay, but Hinch notes that he's going to manage Cabrera's playing time on a "series-by-series" basis. He'll likely get Monday off against the Astros before returning Tuesday and then retreating to the bench for Wednesday's contest. The future Hall of Famer's lack of playing time on top of mediocre production makes him a player to avoid in nearly all fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Facing WBC limitations
Cabrera's participation for Team Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic will be limited by the Tigers, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.
Rivera notes that the specific limitations are yet to be determined but could involve Cabrera being limited to just one plate appearance per game. Cabrera is 1-for-9 at the plate so far during WBC play.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Hits first spring home run
Cabrera went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays.
The home run was the first of the spring for the veteran, who likely will see his Grapefruit League playing time managed carefully the rest of the way as he ramps up for his 19th MLB season. Cabrera said during the offseason that 2023 will be his last season before he retires. The 39-year-old has managed to hit .250 or better each of the last five seasons, though his power has mostly evaporated, which has drastically cut into his fantasy appeal.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Miguel Cabrera: Plans to retire after 2023 season
Cabrera said Monday in an interview with MLB.com that he plans to retire after the 2023 season. "I think it's going to be my last year," he said. "It feels a little weird to say that. I thought I wasn't going to say that ever. But I think it's time to say goodbye to baseball."
Considering that Cabrera will be due $32 million for 2023 -- the final year of the $248 million contract extension he inked in March 2014 -- his decision to play one final season comes as little surprise. The 39-year-old had already moved into more of a part-time role at designated hitter by the second half of the 2022 campaign, and Tigers manager A.J. Hinch previously said earlier this month that he doesn't envision Cabrera playing on an everyday basis during the final season of his Hall of Fame-worthy career, per Evan Woodbery of MLive.com. Cabrera still hit a respectable .254 in 433 plate appearances in 2022, but his walk rate (6.6 percent) and ISO (.063) both plummeted to career-worst levels.... See More ... See Less
