Cabrera, currently the Tigers first baseman, finished fifth in the American League Most Valuable Player voting this season after hitting .344/.448/.586 with 30 home runs and 105 RBI. His batting average and on base percentage were good enough to lead the American League in 2011. In 2010, he led the league in RBI with 126.
