Miguel Cabrera left Tuesday’s loss to the Twins in the bottom of the third inning with what was initially described by the Tigers as a left biceps tendon strain. Cabrera is done for the season: Cabrera has mostly been a remarkably dependable player in his career.

Former two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera is done for the season. During Tuesday night's loss to the Minnesota Twins (MIN 6, DET 4), Cabrera suffered a ruptured left biceps tendon while taking a swing in the third inning.

Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera ruptured a tendon in his left biceps Tuesday in Detroit's game against the Minnesota Twins, and he will undergo season-ending surgery.

Cabrera was hurt while swinging and missing on a third-inning pitch by Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi.

The 11-time All-Star and two-time American League MVP missed three games from April 30-May 2 due to a left biceps spasm.

He returned to go 1-for-4 on May 3 against the Kansas City Royals, then landed on the disabled list for four weeks due to a right hamstring strain.

Cabrera, 35, is hitting .299 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 38 games this season.

He was 0-for-1 on Tuesday before being replaced by Niko Goodrum.

Baseball’s 10-day disabled list is a major-league joke .
Initial results are in for American League all-star fan balloting and among the top five vote-getters at the eight defensive positions, plus designated hitter, not one Blue Jays player is listed among 45 names. That is a problem.The Jays’ Canadian fanbase — when it is emotionally engaged — is a nation of online voters. This is a country that made sure Jose Bautista (twice) and Josh Donaldson won the award for most all-star fan votes. It’s a fan base that got both Steve Delabar and Michael Saunders in as the final all-star in short-burst online voting. But in 2018 they are clearly not into this team. Fan apathy is a big problem.
