Miguel Cabrera exited yesterday’s game with a hamstring injury, but the reigning back-to-back MVP is in the Tigers’ lineup and batting third for tonight’s game against the White Sox.

Cabrera’s overall numbers are slightly off from his usual lofty standards because he started slow this season, but he’s hitting .372 with 10 homers, 16 doubles, and a 1.068 OPS in his last 43 games. And even with the slow start Cabrera ranks among the American League’s top 10 in batting average (.326), on-base percentage (.377), slugging percentage (.564), and RBIs (51) overall.

    Didn’t he have a similar problem at the end of last season, but still played.?

      No, last year his injury was exacerbated when Avail Garcia ran into his fist. But, yes, he is a work horse.

      Last year he had a groin injury, actually a tear.

        He still played hurt.
