Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera could be considered to be this generations version of Babe Ruth.
So, how come no one is talking about him this season?
In a season dominated by Bryce Harper, Clayton Kershaw, Mike Trout and Jake Arrieta, Cabrera is quietly having a great season. Entering today, he is batting .304 with 12 home runs and 37 RBIs and is on pace for yet another MVP caliber season.
In the month of May, Cabrera was laser focused at the plate, hitting .337 with 7 homers. Last season was an “off-year,”winning the AL batting title for the fourth time in five years. He was limited to 119 games due to a grade 3 calf strain.
With the younger crop of players in the league, Cabrera could be shoved into the background, but don’t count him out just yet.
He is still one of the best players in the league. Don’t be surprised if he wins the MVP award this year.
