Tigers place Miggy on DL with calf strain | MLB.com

Detroit placed the slugging first-baseman on the 15-day disabled list Saturday due to the left calf strain he suffered trying to get a running start off first base.

The injury occurred when Cabrera took off from first base on a hit-and-run play with Victor Martinez at the plate. Cabrera, who had taken off several times during what ended up being an 11-pitch at-bat, pulled up immediately as Martinez fouled off another pitch.

MLive: Watch Miguel Cabrera give batting gloves, bat to young Indians fan following hilarious exchange

Mickey Callaway was ejected from the game for less. Go figure.

Never one to shy away from engaging with fans of the visiting team, Cabrera’s generous gift came after a playful back-and-forth conversation with a young fan, who cleanly fielded a foul ball down the first-base line with his baseball cap.

The play was entertaining. But the exchange that took place afterwards between Cabrera and the fan, Dom, was the real magic.

“I just told Miggy, ‘I got your back. You need to be fired up,’” Dom told FOX Sports Detroit. “He looked bored out there.”

Cabrera played along and exchanged a broad smile with the fan. When the inning ended, Cabrera told Dom, wearing an Indians cap and T-shirt, to stay seated.

“At first, I thought he was just telling me to back away and stop talking,” Dom told FOX Sports Detroit.

Instead, Cabrera gathered a gift basket of sorts from the dugout, which included batting gloves and a bat, and tossed them to the energetic fan in between innings.

“I was shocked, really,” Dom said.

Shocked enough to become a Cabrera fan?

“I don’t know,” he said. “He’s on Detroit.”

The first batch of All-Star vote tallies are out and the Royals are dominating

Would be fitting if Royals fans stuffed the ballot for the All-Star Game in Cincinnati.

Fans of the Kansas City Royals spent the early part of the season defending their team — either because they weren’t getting enough respect after their 2014 World Series run or because they were being painted as villains after they made the benches clear a few times.

Now, it appears Royals fans have focused their energy on another plight: making sure they dominate All-Star game voting. MLB released the first batch of AL vote tallies Tuesday and the Royals fans proved themselves the king and queen keyboard clackers, as five Royals would be starters if voting ended right now.

Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar, Alex Gordon and overall vote leader Salvador Perez lead their positions. At the positions where Royals aren’t first, they’re second. Even Alex Rios, who has played just seven games this season is in sixth place for outfielders, ahead of Jacoby Ellsbury, Jose Bautista and Michael Brantley. Totally warranted, right?
