Miguel Cabrera was forced to leave tonight’s game against the Red Sox in the bottom of the sixth inning with what the Tigers are calling left hamstring tightness. He’s considered day-to-day.

Cabrera delivered a two-out single off John Lackey before exiting the ballgame. He appeared uncomfortable running the bases when he doubled and scored in the fourth inning, so this would explain it. It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but the Tigers could give him a day or two to rest.

After getting off to a slow start for his standards, Cabrera is batting .326/.377/.564 with 11 home runs and 51 RBI through 59 games this season.

    I had a tight hamstring for the first time in my life after running some sprints a few weeks ago. Never understood why players would be out for so long, and now I do. I’m getting old…

      Just wait. In a few years, you’ll need to stretch before mowing your lawn.

    Well, not only is he below, behind his last couple of seasons, he’s below his career averages in the following still…

    On base percentage

    Slugging

    OPS

    I’d say he’s still at a slow stat. I mean his career numbers are obviously lower than his best seasons and his numbers this year are well below his top seasons and even below his career numbers…

    His on base percentage was .442% last season and it’s only .377% now… Gotta go back to 2008 since it’s be been below .377%. His career OBP is .398%

    yep, slow start still with respect to getting on base…

    He’s slugging .564% right now… gotta go back to 2009 since it’s been that low…

    Gotta go back to 2009 for his OPS to be as low as it is right now this season too…

    He is still off to a slow start and I don’t mean just compared to his top seasons either, but to his career marks and career marks are always below one’s top seasons…
