Tigers' Miguel Cabrera done for year after rupturing biceps tendon

Detroit 1st baseman to undergo season-ending surgery

Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera ruptured a tendon in his left biceps Tuesday in Detroit's game against the Minnesota Twins, and he will undergo season-ending surgery.

Cabrera was hurt while swinging and missing on a third-inning pitch by Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi.

The 11-time All-Star and two-time American League MVP missed three games from April 30-May 2 due to a left biceps spasm.

He returned to go 1-for-4 on May 3 against the Kansas City Royals, then landed on the disabled list for four weeks due to a right hamstring strain.

Cabrera, 35, is hitting .299 with three homers and 22 RBIs in 38 games this season.
