Miguel Cabrera didn’t win a second consecutive Triple Crown, but that’s about all that changed as the Detroit Tigers third baseman repeated as American League Most Valuable Player.
If you watched any of the ALCS, then you know it was obvious Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was not at 100 percent. Far from it. He was dealing with a hip flexor and an abdominal strain, and that was just the stuff we knew about.
On Monday, GM Dave Dombrowski told reporters Cabrera was dealing with a Grade 2-3 groin strain late in the year. He will see a specialist and may need surgery this offseason. No word on whether surgery would delay him at the start of spring training or even the 2014 regular season. (CBSSports.com)
