Detroit Tigers 3rd baseman Miguel Cabrera will undergo surgery on his strained groin that hampered him in the playoffs on Tuesday. Cabrera reportedly played through a grade 2 strain.

Per ESPN’s Enrique Rojas, Miggy had this to say when asked about the decision to play through the injury:

Those are decisions you have to make sometimes, if not it affects your future. If not, it could hurt your career, and that’s what I based my decision on. I consulted with the team and made this decision personally so I could keep playing with the team. I tried to [play hurt] to take advantage of the chance we had in the playoffs, because with so many good teams you never know when a chance like this will come along. It took me eight or nine years to get back in the playoffs and I wanted to be back there and help the team win.”

I can always respect a player who puts winning above even their own health.

The Tigers should be on the short-list of World Series contenders next season. Their decision on who will be the next manager, is a key piece to the puzzle though.
