Miguel Cabrera is going to be missed while he’s out with a Grade 3 strain of his left calf, but the Tigers are getting by just fine so far this afternoon against the Blue Jays. Check out this excellent catch from Alex Avila, who is getting the first shot at filling in for Cabrera at first base:

Great stuff, but given Avila’s knee problems, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus probably had to hold his breath for a second there.
