Here's why Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera might actually be underrated.

Miggy may actually be underrated.
Hit Probability shows Tigers slugger deserved more production.

So if we can do that for individual plays, we can accumulate that over the course of a full season, too. As we explained in our introductory post, by taking the estimated outcome for every tracked batted ball -- and including real-world strikeout and walk totals, as well as filling in the gaps with estimates for the few untracked balls that occur -- we can come up with a hitter's estimated season line and compare it to his actual line.

For Cabrera, that looks like this:
Actual 2016: .316/.393/.563 .956 OPS .399 wOBA
Estimated 2016: .342/.416/.682 1.098 OPS .459 wOBA

Not only is that Estimated OPS the No. 1 mark in all of baseball, it's also a 142 point OPS difference from what actually occurred. By this measure, Cabrera's batted-ball profile was baseball's best.

Tigers Justin Verlander focuses on elusive ring, not legacy.

With J.D. out, Ausmus weighing lineup options.
Tigers may bat Castellanos second, or move him to middle of order.
