Latest Update Miggy sends a blast out of the spacious Angel Stadium Friday Sat Jul, 26, 01:30 AM
An elite pure hitter, he has fantastic plate coverage that lets him hit for huge power and superb averages. Is patient at the plate and a highly consistent run producer.
Flaws: : Is not a top-end glove man and is a bit limited defensively. Doesn't have a lot of speed. Can get moody and a little surly at times. Has had off-field issues in the past.
Any concerns of any health issues with Miggy seem to be irrelevant as he extended his current hit streak to five games, while recording his fourth multi-hit game over that span and sixth over his last 10 games as he has raised his average by 10 points up to .316. The home run was his 16th of the season and second over his last three games as he appears primed to make a push for yet another MVP trophy to put on his mantle.Analyst: Michael Pichan
His three RBI's give him the MLB lead with 80. While Cabrera hasn't been hitting home runs the past few weeks, he has still been effective. In July he is hitting .311 with 12 RBI's and 12 runs. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Ausmus would be making this defensive switch in order to keep Victor Martinez's bat in the lineup since the Tigers will be without the use of the DH in their lineup over their next three games. Shifting Miggy to third would allow VMart to play first base. This would not be the first time Miggy played third this year. He has maned the hot corner twice this year and is 0-for-8 over those two games, but I would not hold that against him with these upcoming games in the very hitter friendly confines of Chase Field.Analyst: Michael Pichan
