DETROIT - Miguel Cabrera ruptured his left biceps tendon Tuesday night, an injury that will sideline the Detroit slugger for the rest of the season, and the Tigers lost 6-4 to the Minnesota Twins.
The two-time AL MVP will have surgery this week, the Tigers said. Cabrera, playing his 12th game since missing 26 with a hamstring strain, exited in the third inning and underwent an MRI during the game.
Batting in the third inning, Cabrera swung awkwardly at Jake Odorizzi's slider and immediately walked toward the Tigers dugout with his left arm hanging at his side. Niko Goodrum replaced him at the plate and struck out.
Cabrera left Detroit's loss April 29 to the Baltimore Orioles with spasms in his left biceps and missed three games.
