The music world is mourning the death of Chris Cornell, who committed suicide in Detroit Wednesday night. He was 52.
That loss has hit especially hard in Seattle, Cornell’s hometown, where the vocalist and guitarist co-founded Soundgarden, pioneers of the grunge movement of the 1990s.
The Tigers edged out a tight 5-4 win against the Orioles on Wednesday, but star first baseman Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch with a new injury.
Cabrera, who previously endured a spell on the 10-day disabled list earlier this year with a right groin strain, is now dealing with a Grade 1 oblique strain.
Not good, as oblique injuries have been especially problematic in MLB this season. Though it usually takes weeks, even months to recover from oblique injuries, manager Brad Ausmus believes Cabrera will be back in 2-3 days, according to MLB.com.
If Cabrera truly is dealing with this injury, it may be best to put him on the shelf for a spell. The 11-time All-Star is batting just .248 this season with four home runs and 15 RBIs.
Obviously something to learn from, something to move on from. Don’t let it define me but really I think it was just frustration from coming off a really good homestand and really just not even being in any of these ball games, just coming out flat and not being able to build on what we were able to build on against Seattle. That just all came out in that moment.
