Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was batting .301 and playing first base with great skill.
Now, he’s gone for the rest of the seasion.
Cabrera left the game Tuesday night against the Minnesota Twins in the bottom of the third inning with what the team said was a left biceps tendon strain, ESPN reports. An MRI shows a rupture, so he’ll undergo season-ending surgery.
Cabrera swung awkwardly at Jake Odorizzi’s slider and immediately walked toward the Tigers’ dugout with his left arm hanging at his side, ESPN reports.
“He feels bad, he feels really bad,” Manager Ron Gardenhire said after the game, according to ESPN. “He feels like he’s letting people down.”
