What Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera thinks about Riley Greene’s injury

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Detroit Tigers designated hitter Miguel Cabrera will never forget his MLB arrival. He was playing for Double-A Carolina, an affiliate of the Florida Marlins, when manager Tracy Woodson benched him during the game.

He sat alone in the dugout.

“That was a scary moment,” Cabrera said Sunday. “They told me after the game that I was called up, so I was relieved after that. Like, what did I do? The manager wouldn’t even talk to me. I thought I did something wrong.”

He hit a walk-off home run in his first game, won the World Series that year and has played 19 seasons in the majors, earning two MVP awards, the Triple Crown in 2012, 11 All-Star selections and four batting titles.

He is arguably the greatest right-handed hitter of his generation.
