Cabrera was diagnosed with a right clavicle contusion after taking a hard grounder off the chest in Friday's game against the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In English, that's a bruised collarbone. X-rays taken after Cabrera left the game were negative, so it doesn't sound like this will be a major injury. The Tigers could choose to rest him this weekend in Minnesota, though, so consider him day-to-day for now.

Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk and three runs on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera's big day was part of an 11-run effort in an easy Tigers win. Although he's struggling with a .267 batting average along with a .448 slugging percentage, this is just the type of game that he needed to potentially start a hot streak, as fantasy managers hope to get some type of reward for their lofty draft pick.

Cabrera went 0-for-4 and left five men on base in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera certainly had some chances to deliver RBI, but he didn't come through in this one. It's been a down year so far for the veteran slugger, as he's slashing .260/.352/.433. His .785 OPS is nearly 200 points lower than the mark he posted in 2016. Still, Cabrera's track record suggests that a hot streak could be just around the corner.

Cabrera (hip) is in Wednesday's lineup against the Giants, Chris McCosky of Detroit News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera left Tuesday's game due to hip tightness, but will not miss any time as he's slotted into his normal position at first base while batting third. Although Cabrera landed on the disabled list earlier this year due to the same injury, he appears ready to go for Wednesday's contest as the Tigers match up against right-hander Ty Blach.

Manager Brad Ausmus said after Tuesday's win over the Giants that he expects Cabrera (hip) to return to the lineup Wednesday, Evan Woodberg of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera exited in the seventh inning with left hip tightness, the same injury that had resulted in his stay on the 10-day disabled list in April. The 34-year-old said three weeks ago that he was still fighting a hip flexor injury, and although the issue presented problems again Tuesday, the Tigers relayed after the contest that he was only pulled for precautionary purposes. If Cabrera is able to run the bases and field his position Wednesday during pregame workouts without incident, he should be back in the starting nine, but the recurring nature of his injury seems to be taking its toll on his production. Cabrera is slashing .263/.357/.451 over 294 plate appearances this season, with his 113 wRC+ representing his worst mark since his rookie campaign in 2003.

Cabrera exited Tuesday's game early due to left hip tightness.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera was 1-for-3 before being replaced by Andrew Romine in the seventh inning. It's unclear how serious the injury is at this point, but this could be another tough break for the 34-year-old, who has been nagged by multiple injuries already this season.

Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

He and J.D. Martinez delivered back-to-back home runs off Josh Tomlin in the third inning to give the Tigers a lead they would not surrender. Cabrera has now mashed three home runs in his last four games to raise his season total to 11 through 246 at-bats. He went through a 22-game stretch without a homer earlier in the season but is now starting to heat up in a big way heading into the All-Star break.

Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old has now homered in back-to-back games to give him 10 on the year. Cabrera's recent power surge hasn't been buttressed by his usual high batting average, however, and he's hitting only .220 (11-for-50) over his last 13 games despite five home runs, nine runs and nine RBI. The future Hall of Famer hasn't hit below .300 since he posted a .292 average in 2008, his first season in Detroit, but that streak appears to be in serious jeopardy unless he can put together a huge second half.

Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Cabrera has missed some time with groin and oblique injuries, and the slugging first baseman has just eight home runs so far after launching 38 last year. His .820 OPS is also more than 100 points below his 2016 mark. However, Cabrera's track record suggests that he could get on a hot streak at any moment.

Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

After going 22 games without a homer, Cabrera is starting to heat up as the veteran slugger has now swatted two out in his last three games. He's in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak --slashing .379/.419/.759 in 29 at-bats over that span -- and will look to keep swinging a hot bat as the Tigers wrap up their series with the Rays before heading out on an extended road trip.
