Best- Miguel Cabrera
Tigers fans who are complaining about Miguel Cabrera’s lack of power for much of 2019 so far do have a right to be upset, but Miggy’s solid rate of production should not be ignored. Cabrera finished the month of April batting .282 and eleven RBIs, placing him second on the team behind the injured Christin Stewart.
It did take him all the way until April 26th to hit his first one out of the park, but that game in Chicago showed the Cabrera is still capable of a lot at the plate. That night, Miggy played a major role in Detroit’s biggest offensive explosion of the season, going 4-6 at the plate with three RBIs. Do not be deterred by the former Triple Crown winner’s fading slugging power. Instead, be excited that the most veteran member of this Tigers squad is still finding a way to be one of the biggest contributors to an otherwise very stale offense.
