Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera done for 2018 season with ruptured biceps tendon

Former two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera is done for the season.

During Tuesday night’s loss to the Minnesota Twins (MIN 6, DET 4), Cabrera suffered a ruptured left biceps tendon while taking a swing in the third inning. He will undergo season-ending surgery, the Detroit Tigers announced.

The contract is a big deal. Here’s one opinion on the issue:
Tigers still owe Miguel Cabrera a ton of money, but even with
the injury his contract isn’t as awful as you think

The beginning of the end came after the 2014 ALDS sweep at the hands of the Orioles. The Tigers went 74-87 the following season, dead last in the AL Central. Dave Dombrowski was let go in August of 2015, and Al Avila became acting GM. After a decent 2016 season, the Tigers finally tanked in 2017, going 64-98 and making a few rebuilding moves, including dealing Justin Verlander at the deadline. They simply didn’t have the depth or the leverage to handle a reload instead of a rebuild.

Then there’s the final point, and this might be the most important: Cabrera has had exactly one bad season with the Tigers, including this season. 2017 was an abject catastrophe. People were rightfully questioning if Cabrera was done. He hit .249/.329/.399 in 2017, all career-lows outside of his rookie season in 2003. His 16 homers were also his lowest number since being a rookie.

San Francisco Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto does not have a torn ligament in his injured elbow but is expected to miss at least six weeks, according to multiple reports.

Cueto met recently with renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who reportedly told the right-hander that surgery was not necessary and recommended that he rest for six to eight weeks.

Sano ‘not making a lot of progress’; Twins might consider DL

Miguel Sano tried to run in the outfield before batting practice on Monday, “and it didn’t go particularly well,’ Twins manager Paul Molitor said. So the Twins’ third baseman is not in the lineup for a third consecutive game tonight, and a stint on the disabled list is becoming more likely.

Sano felt tightness in his left hamstring on Friday night, and he hasn’t played since. “He’s not making a lot of progress,” Molitor said. “I was hoping by Day 3 we’d be seeing [him] a little bit better, being in a better position to get him back in the lineup.”

Maybe if he lost some of that weight….

Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner suffers broken left wrist | ESPN

Justin Turner has a broken left wrist after being hit by a pitch during Los Angeles’ 3-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.

Turner was struck by a pitch from right-hander Kendall Graveman in the first inning.

“I was hoping obviously the X-rays would be negative, but there’s a small non-displaced fracture,’’ Turner said. “We’ll just play it by ear, see how it goes.’‘
