Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (groin) denied comments recently published that, translated from the Spanish language, quoted Cabrera as saying his groin injury still affects him and is the result of his loss in power.

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (groin) said he hasn't completely recovered from a groin tear that bothered him at the end of last season. "There are times when I feel good, but there are always muscles that are tightening, muscles that are not functioning properly," Cabrera said. "It's part of the process." Still, Cabrera is hitting .306 with 75 RBIs at the break, but his 14 home runs are down from previous seasons.
Fantasy Tip: Miggy's power is noticeably down, yes, and it could be a result of his offseason surgery. However, he remains an elite fantasy option, and he may improve his power numbers in the second half if he becomes more comfortable.
