1B Miguel Cabrera was held out for the sixth straight game with a back injury on Friday and manager Brad Ausmus told reporters after the game that it's "extremely doubtful" Cabrera will play in the final two games. Cabrera has been bothered by the back injury for much of the season and hit just .249 with 16 homers and 60 RBIs in 130 games.

1B Miguel Cabrera said he will get a second opinion of his two bulging discs when he returns home Monday to Florida. It is questionable whether he will play again this season. "If I feel good, I'll play," Cabrera said. "I'd like to play. If I get a chance to go up there and do something, I've got to do it, you know. Because you've got to go out there and try to win for these young guys." Cabrera said he plans to get on an off-season program to strengthen his core. "This Monday I'll talk to the doctor I'll see in Miami and show the MRI to another to see a different opinion and we'll go from there," said Cabrera, the American League 2012-13 MVP. Cabrera is hitting a career-worst .249 with 16 homers and 60 RBIs. It will be the first time since 2008 that he did not bat .300. He turns 35 on April 18.

1B Miguel Cabrera is seeking a second opinion after a MRI on Sunday detected two herniated discs. "Someone else to look at the MRI. It's pretty standard, really," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "I don't think there's a treatment they've decided on." A decision has not been made whether Cabrera will play again this year. "I don't know that there's an upside or a downside to it, quite frankly," Ausmus said. "Everyone wants to make this into a career-ending injury, but it's very common." Ausmus said he played 10 years with a very similar injury.

1B Miguel Cabrera, increasingly being taken out of games early because of his lower back issues, learned after going through an MRI Sunday that he's been playing with two herniated discs in his lower back, those between the L3 and L4 plus and L4/L5 vertebrae. "I think it's probably slowly developed," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He' s got a track record of playing through pain, so how much it affects him is tough to tell. He would play through pain the majority of players wouldn't play through, and he wants to play every day, so he'll often downplay the severity." Ausmus said doctors told him surgery was not indicated at this time and Cabrera wants to play as many games as he can of Detroit's last six. That would be as a DH, Ausmus said. Cabrera has already indicated his workouts this winter will includes strengthening core and back muscles.

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has been playing with two herniated disks in his back, an MRI disclosed Sunday, but he still wants to play through the pain and finish the season. Manager Brad Ausmus said "treatment is to be determined" but added Cabrera "has already indicated to me that he wants to go on the road. We're certainly not ruling out the possibility that he can play again. I would imagine it would be in a DH role." Doctors examining the MRI did not indicate surgery was required at this time. Cabrera, 34, is hitting .249 this season, his lowest average in his 15 major league seasons. He has hit 22 homers, and the only season in which he hit fewer was his rookie season in 2003, when he had 21.

1B Miguel Cabrera was taken out of Saturday night's game after the first inning when his lower back tightened up again. He is doubtful to play Sunday. "He's probably going to get an MRI Sunday," manager Brad Ausmus said. "I'd be surprised if he plays, especially with the off-day following that." Cabrera blooped a single near the right field foul line but it appeared the injury happened when he stretch out in a vain attempt to catch 3B Jeimer Candelario's wild throw on a bunt single by 2B Brian Dozier leading off the game.

1B Miguel Cabrera, removed from the Saturday game after four innings with back stiffness, did not play Sunday. "He doesn't want to sit down, clearly," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He wants to play.

Expect Cabrera to return to the starting lineup Monday against Oakland.

1B Miguel Cabrera returned from a six-game suspension Saturday and hit a two-run homer in the first inning in the 5-4 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Cabrera was suspended for his part in brawl with the New York Yankees. "Getting six games off would allow the body to refresh itself," manager Brad Ausmus said. "In typical Miggy fashion, first at-bat he hits a home run." The homer was No. 461, tying him with 3B Adrian Beltre for 37th on the all-time list.

1B Miguel Cabrera did not play due to lower back tightness, which caused him to be removed from Monday's game in the fifth inning. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said, "He's still a littlesore. He's probably not going to play today or tomorrow and give him the off day (Thursday). We'll see how he is tomorrow. If he comes in and says, 'I feel great,' he might go out. He told me yesterday it didn't bother him swinging, it was more standing around on defense. It started in the WBC, so it's reared its head a number of times. Quite frankly, I think he's going to probably deal with it the rest of his career -- the back issues arriving at times. I had the same issues the last 10 years of my career."

1B Miguel Cabrera was removed from the game with lower back tightness, something he has been dealing with throughout the season. The plodding early pace of the game contributed to Cabrera's back condition. Manager Brad Ausmus said, "Quite frankly, I think it was all the standing around early in the game. His back started to tighten up on him. He said he was able to hit, but in order to hit, he'd have to go stand out at first base again so we let him hit that one at-bat (in the fifth) and made the change."
