Time to buy injured Miguel Cabrera, other Tigers' bats

Fantasy owners seem to be panicking when it comes to Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera, and they really shouldn’t. Yes, the future Hall of Famer was placed on the very popular 10-day disabled list this past weekend with a groin strain, and has been battling a back injury, but this isn’t expected to be a lengthy absence. In fact, Cabrera could be right back in Detroit’s lineup as soon as he’s eligible, which is in time for all the games next week. Still, he turned 34 years old last week and to many, that’s old and everything’s changed. Well, I don’t buy it.
