DETROIT -- Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera will have season-ending surgery after rupturing his left biceps tendon.
Cabrera exited Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Twins in the bottom of the third inning while at the plate at Comerica Park. Cabrera, at the dish for his second at-bat, swung at a 1-1 pitch and immediately dropped the bat and grasped his left biceps area.
Head athletic trainer Doug Teter and manager Ron Gardenhire left the Tigers' dugout to meet Cabrera, who was already walking toward them. They paused briefly before continuing down the steps to the clubhouse.
This had been a relatively healthy and successful season for Cabrera until he went to the disabled list on May 4 with a right hamstring strain. He returned to the Tigers' lineup on June 1 and had played in every game since.
Niko Goodrum finished the at-bat as a pinch-hitter and struck out. The strikeout was charged to Cabrera.
