Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his left biceps tendon Tuesday, Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire announced.

Cabrera left the Tigers’ 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins in the bottom of the third inning Tuesday with what the team said was a left biceps tendon strain. An MRI determined it was ruptured.

“He feels bad, he feels really bad,” said Gardenhire after the game. “He feels like he’s letting people down.”

Cabrera suffered the injury when he swung awkwardly at Jake Odorizzi‘s slider and immediately walked toward the Tigers’ dugout with his left arm hanging at his side. Niko Goodrum replaced him at the plate and struck out.

Cabrera came off the disabled list earlier this month after being shelved for close to a month with a right hamstring strain. His return was slowed by back stiffness during his recovery process.

The 35-year-old is coming off the worst season of his career, hitting .249 with 16 homers as the Tigers went 64-98 in 2017.

Cabrera is hitting .301 this season with three homers and 22 RBIs.
