321 hitter and has 405 home runs with 1,423 RBI’s.
Getting the start with Hutchison on the mound was Navarro.
“Well, when you lose the best hitter on the planet, it’s a huge blow”. Only the Red Sox (4.87 entering Saturday) have produced an uglier number.
After singling to start the fourth, Cabrera was forced to leave after injuring his left leg while running to second base. The Jays have now lost six of their last eight games and are 8-11 since ending their 11-game win streak.
“It seemed to work today, but now that it seems like Miggy’s gonna be out – certainly at least for tomorrow – we’re going to have to come up with something else.”
“You’ve got to find ways to win without him”.
Among those five starters, Hutchison is the one the Jays should be most concerned about. The signs haven’t been there consistently.
Improving the starting rotation has been a priority for weeks. I was actually more concerned he might hit his head, during the course of it. Less concerned about the knee, and more concerned about his head. Marco Estrada has done just fine.
“That’s probably the worst knuckler I’ve had all season”, he said.
ANGELS 8, RANGERS 2 (at Arlington, Texas) – Kole Calhoun drove in four runs with a pair of early doubles and Los Angeles won its first game against Texas since trading Josh Hamilton back to the Rangers. The club’s reputation for being the comeback kids is well-earned but, as the above results suggest, victories aren’t likely in these situations. “We can score a bunch of runs in the blink of an eye, but it is tough to dig yourself out of that hole”. “Any situation that happens to him is big for our team”.
Detroit can’t be without Cabrera for too long or they will never be able to catch the Kansas City Royals for first place in the American League Central division.
As the club waits for reinforcements, Estrada will pitch on Sunday trying to avoid the sweep in Detroit.
“I don’t think anybody’s panicking”, Dickey said.
On the other side, the Blue Jays have a record of 16-21 when they are the underdog and are -69 overall with the money line.
Cabrera had an MRI, which showed no injury to his Achilles’ tendon.
Detroit Tigers pitcher David Price delivers against the Toronto Blue Jays during the first inning of a baseball game Saturday, July 4, 2015, in Detroit. The pitch was fouled off. “You just deal with it”, Gibbons said. He’s having a really good year for the Milwaukee Brewers and because he does have experience playing left field, the Tigers could still get him into the lineup when Cabrera returns. This is a guy who played through a sports hernia and played through a cracked foot. “So he’s not going up there swinging out of his ass all of the time”. “He’s such a good hitter”.
Cabrera, 32, is batting. “I mean, I remember stretches a few years ago where I think he sat for nearly a week, week and a half straight and we went like 8-2 or something like that without him”, Alex Avila said.
