Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera wins Hank Aaron Award for 2nd year in a row
Veteran baseball writer Peter Gammons also reported that Cabrera will have surgery next week on his severely strained groin. [UPDATE: Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski later confirmed the report in an email exchange.]
“I’m very nervous right now,” Cabrera said after being awarded the honor last year. “I want to thank you very much for giving me this opportunity. It’s an honor.”
The Hank Aaron Award is given annually to each league’s top offensive performer, as voted by fans, along with a Hall of Fame panel of Aaron, Tony Gwynn, Paul Molitor, Joe Morgan and Robin Yount.
