The Detroit Tigers suffered a huge blow on Tuesday night. The team lost slugger Miguel Cabrera for the rest of the season.
During a third inning at-bat, he was injured. After an MRI, the team announced he suffered a ruptured left biceps tendon.
The team, who had to briefly miss him in May with a disabled list, will have to go the rest of the season without him. They fell to 31-37 on the season after a 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins.
“It’s a very sad day for our baseball team,” said Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire. “He’s a special player and a special person to have around here. It’s a blow. I feel terrible for him.”
Cabrera knew almost immediately he was injured. He was injured after he missed a swing. Once he realized he was injured, he dropped his bat and walked off the field.
“He took a swing, missed the ball and the thing popped. It’s pretty sad,” Gardenhire said. “He left his bat and started walking. He knew it. He felt it pop. That’s a bad feeling.”
John Hicks, who was the backup catcher, will now be the starting first baseman, according to Gardenhire.
