Analysis: Cabrera, batting .300 with 18 home runs and 51 RBIs in 82 games, argued a call after he hit a ground ball to third baseman Jose Ramirez with Ian Kinsler on first.

"That's my goal."
Analysis: The 32-year-old slugger hit .338 to win his fourth AL batting title in five seasons in 2015, but he played only 119 games. It has been a while since Cabrera had a fully healthy year, and that is a concerning trend for a Detroit team trying to recapture the form that enabled it to win the division every season from 2011-2014.
