Cabrera was replaced at first base by Nick Goodrum, and it didn’t take long for the bad news about Cabrera to emerge. MLive’s Evan Woodbery reported that Cabrera has a ruptured biceps tendon and will undergo season-ending surgery.

Cabrera was limited to 130 games last year by a back injury and has dealt with multiple injuries this season, including to his hamstring. Now he is out for the season with a biceps injury.
The 35-year-old can still produce at the plate as evidenced by his .301 average and .845 OPS, but we’re starting to get to the point where his body is not cooperating.
