Latest Update Miguel Cabrera could see some time at 3rd base Mon Jul, 21, 12:41 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.
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
Cabrera is now 5-for-8 with three extra-base hits, five RBI, three runs scored and two walks over his last two games as he continues to be an elite fantasy contributor. He is now slashing .315/.376/.550 with 14 home runs and 73 RBI through 333 at-bats, putting him on track for his eighth straight season of 30 home runs and 100 RBI which is truly remarkable.
