Detroit's Cabrera has surgery after groin injury

ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera underwent muscle repair surgery today and the Detroit slugger is expected to be ready for spring training.

The Tigers revealed after the season that Cabrera had been limited down the stretch by a tear in his groin. He still hit .348 with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs during the season. Cabrera batted .262 with two home runs in 11 postseason games before Detroit lost to Boston in the AL championship series.

The operation was performed by Dr. Bill Meyers in Philadelphia and the team said that it was successful. Cabrera faces 6-8 weeks of rehabilitation.
