Heavy hitter Miguel Cabrera took the league by storm last season after winning the Triple Crown.
This season the Detroit slugger had stiff competition with Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles who slugged more home runs than he did. It was an entertaining race between the two this season, hopefully they continue it next year.
With awards being handed out across the league, today Miguel Cabrera won Hank Aaron honors.
Miguel finished the season with a batting line of .338/.442/.636 across the board with 44 long balls and 137 runs driven in. He managed to do all this during an injury plagued September.
Next year you would have to think that Cabrera would be the favorite to win the American League MVP again. The winner hasn’t been announced yet, but I’m almost positive it’s going to be handed to Chris Davis.
The Detroit Tigers failed to reach the World Series after being swept by the San Francisco Giants last season, but they should be right back in the same position with a different result next season.
Miguel Cabrera wins Aaron Award, will. Have surgery for severe groin pull next week
