Cabrera placed on IL


Miguel Cabrera has been dealing with soreness in his left biceps, and the Detroit Tigers decided to put the All-Star slugger on the 10day injury list Sunday to undergo testing and find out exactly what’s wrong with one of baseball’s best hitters. Cabrera, who is closing in on 500 career home runs and other milestones, played first base in Saturday’s 11-3 loss to the Indians. He went 0 for 3 at the plate, and Manager A.J. Hinch said Cabrera felt his biceps “grab” during an at-bat in the seventh inning. Hinch could tell Cabrera was altering his swing — he isn’t releasing one hand on his follow-through — and felt it was time to shut him down before the injury worsened. A four-time batting champion, the 37-year-old Cabrera is off to a slow start. He is batting just .125 (3 for 24) with 1 home run and 3 RBI in 7 games.
