Debuted in the 2003 season for the Miami Marlins, Miguel Cabrera has been playing for the Tigers since the 2008 season. Irrespective of the result, he has always been a lone warrior for the Tigers over the years.

Though there are no heavyweights like the Yankees and Dodgers in the American League Central, teams like the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox are doing wonders in the 2022 season. Whereas, the Detroit Tigers have been awful in the AL Central. With just 16 wins out of 44 games, they are currently fourth in their division.

However, the A.J. Hinch-led team registered their second consecutive win in the AL Central. Thanks to Cabrera’s walk-off hit, the Tigers defeated the Guardians by 4-3 in a close encounter.
