MRI shows Miggy has two herniated disks.
Tigers official site

The Tigers said Sunday that an MRI showed damage between the L3 and L4, and the L4 and L5 disks.

A sports medical professional, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to comment on the issue, told the Free Press tw a typical timetable for recovery is 4-8 weeks. Oftentimes, the issue gets better with rest, meaning Cabrera should be healed in time for spring training.

Cabrera’s injury is similar to that of Dodgers ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw, who has missed significant time in each of the past two seasons. The injury typically doesn't require surgery and the Tigers almost certainly will try treating it with anti-inflammatory drugs or epidural injections before considering surgery.

I wrote at the Tigers site;
These Incompetent Idiots in Tigers front office and bozo in the dugout Kevin Rand didn't think to have Miggy get the MRI in April??

What a stupid organization.

Once again the Tigers braintrust of Head Bozo Al Avila and the Idiots Deluxe do nothings Chadd, Littlefield, Owens, Bream, and Pleis are collecting paychecks for this from an owner who could care less from his comments the other day on how great Avila and company are in their rebuild. None of these clowns suggested an MRI.

Sad times for us Tigers fans.

Exactly. The best hitter on the planet hits .250 all year with no power and needs to be removed from every other game...just trot him out there again tomorrow

If only there were any obvious warning signs something might be wrong. Smh

Tigers: Offseason program will improve Cabrera’s back.
Detnews

The disk herniations were discovered when Cabrera agreed last week to an early MRI as part of the annual “exit physical” when players’ conditions are evaluated ahead of offseason conditioning and rehab programs.
Players also are given a complete physical when they report for spring camp,
or if they are injured or disabled during the season.

But they have the right to decline MRIs or more comprehensive in-season exams, just as they have a right to tell superiors they’re able to play
and prefer to play, which has been Cabrera’s steady insistence in 2017.

can't blame an athlete for wanting to stay in and play...but sometimes I wish they would look at the big picture more often. Easier said than done

They might have a right to say "I want to play." But a manager has a right to say "sit your ass down."

if a player isn't honest about the way he feels the manager can't make an informed decision. Not saying this is the case here...but in general
