Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire announced after a 6-4 loss to the Twins on Tuesday night that Cabrera suffered a ruptured left biceps tendon while swinging at a pitch from Jake Odorizzi in the third inning. Gardenhire said the injury will require surgery.
Cabrera immediately dropped his bat and motioned to the dugout that something was wrong. He walked down the steps and teammates knew that something was terribly wrong with a player who has played through pain repeatedly over the years.
Cabrera first injured his biceps on April 29 and missed three games. Then he went on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain.
“Definitely a big blow for our ballclub and that young man,” Gardenhire said of Cabrera. “He’s been trying to come back and I feel terrible for him. He feels terrible. We gotta try and help him get through this thing. Very sad day for our baseball team though. He’s a special player, a special person to have around here. That’s a blow. I (felt) terrible when I saw him do that.”

Lacob wants Kerr back with the Warriors beyond next season, and it sounds like Kerr himself wants to be with the team beyond 2019 as well. So long as he keeps on winning championships like he is doing, there’s no reason for Golden State to part ways.
“We’ll get it done this summer,” Warriors owner Joe Lacob said after the Warriors completed a four-game sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2018 NBA Finals on Friday night. “Let him rest a little bit. But we’ll get it done. He wants to be with us. We want him long term… He obviously has some health issues he’s still working through, but we’ll get it done. I think as long as he feels comfortable doing it long term, we want him.”
Considering the success that he has had and the respect that his players seem to have for him, it is no wonder that the Warriors want to keep Kerr around as long as they can.
