Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers 3B Miguel Cabrera (groin) underwent "successful core muscle repair surgery" Tuesday, Oct. 29, and is expected to be ready for spring training next year. The surgery was performed by Dr. William Meyers. Cabrera will need to rehab for the next six to eight weeks. "I tried to (play hurt), to take advantage of the chance we had in the playoffs, because with so many good teams, you never know when a chance like this will come along," Cabrera said. "It took me eight or nine years to get back in the playoffs, and I wanted to be back there and help the team win."
