Series vs. Twins has Tigers looking toward next year

Designated hitter Miguel Cabrera will play in the home finale when the Detroit Tigers face the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon.

Cabrera will return next season for what could be the final one of his Hall of Fame career. His bat and body have slowed down in the second half of this season but manager A.J. Hinch wants the fans to see him one more time this year.

"I went to Miggy about playing in the final home game of the season," Hinch said. "Whether it's symbolic or not, playing at 12:10 p.m. isn't ideal for anybody. But I think it's important to our fans. It's important to close out the home schedule and have Miguel be a part of it. He was all about it. He wanted to play all three games in this series."
