The Tigers slugger appeared injured after swinging awkwardly at a pitch on Tuesday night.
DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera will have season ending surgery after rupturing his left biceps tendon Tuesday, Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire announced.
Cabrera left a game Tuesday night against the Minnesota Twins with a left biceps tendon strain and then got a MRI.
Batting in the third inning, Cabrera swung awkwardly at Jake Odorizzi’s slider and immediately walked toward the Tigers dugout with his left arm hanging at his side. Niko Goodrum replaced him at the plate and struck out.
Cabrera left Detroit’s loss April 29 to the Baltimore Orioles with spasms in his left biceps and missed three games.
