Tigers place Miguel Cabrera on the disabled list

Leave a comment

The Detroit Tigers have placed first baseman Miguel Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Cabrera suffered the injury running the bases during Thursday’s game against the Royals. It’s unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. As he goes on the shelf Cabrera is hitting .323/.407/.516 with three homers and 21 RBI. It was a nice bounce back year for the two-time MVP until this injury, so hopefully it’s not terribly serious.

John Hicks will likely get most of the starts at first base for the Tigers while Cabrera heals.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
