Tigers 3B Cabrera could need surgery

DETROIT (AP) - Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera might need surgery to repair a tear in his groin that limited him in the playoffs.
Cabrera hit .348 with 44 home runs and 137 RBIs this season, but he was bothered for the last couple of months by a number of injuries. He batted .262 with two home runs in 11 postseason games. Detroit lost to Boston in the AL championship series.
General manager Dave Dombrowski said Monday that Cabrera was checked by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia before the postseason. Dombrowski said Cabrera only agreed to see Meyers when the team promised the third baseman he wouldn't be shut down.
Dombrowski said resting Cabrera for a couple of weeks wouldn't have been enough to help him get healthy, so he kept playing.
