Tigers' Miguel Cabrera Hits 400th Career Home Run

Tony Firriolo/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera hit his 400th career home run on Saturday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Cabrera connected for a solo homer in the first inning, breaking a tie with Andres Galarraga for the most by a Venezuelan-born player.

The game at Busch Stadium was stopped in the bottom of the first because of rain. The Tigers and Cardinals waited out an hour and 20-minute rain delay before resuming.

Cabrera's 10th homer of the season came against Tyler Lyons and was his fourth in three days.

The home run would be his 262nd with the Tigers, tying Willie Horton for fourth on the franchise list.

David Price Expected to Make Next Start Despite Injury

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Tigers ace David Price is expected to make his next scheduled start despite suffering a mild hamstring injury in Friday's game against the Royals.

The Tigers announced Price's hamstring injury on Saturday but said they would wait until next week before determining whether or not he would make his next start.

However, Price told reporters he feels "fine" and he anticipates making his next scheduled start Thursday against the Minnesota Twins.

Price suffered the injury on a fluke play in Friday night's victory over Kansas City when he stepped on a bat.

Justin Verlander Cleared to Resume Throwing

Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Justin Verlander is on the comeback trail. The 2011 American League MVP, who hasn't pitched this season due to a strained right triceps, resumed throwing Wednesday.

Verlander had his third MRI of the season on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the results were examined by Dr. Tony Romeo. The Tigers then released a statement stating the hurler, "was given the clearance to resume a throwing program designed to return him to full competition."

Verlander threw 50 times off flat ground Wednesday, after which skipper Brad Ausmus said the six-time All-Star felt fine -- although Ausmus admits he doesn't know when his right-hander will pitch again for the Tigers.

"He's not going to be off the mound for a while," Ausmus said Wednesday. "There's no real set timetable. He's able to throw, he's able to catch on an everyday, every-other-day basis. It really just depends on how he feels. ...He's got to start building up his arm strength again, basically from ground zero. We'll just have to see how it goes."

Verlander pitched 206 innings last season, compiling a 15-12 record with a 4.54 ERA, 159 strikeouts, and a 1.40 WHIP.

Kirk Gibson Diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Former Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Dodgers star Kirk Gibson has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

The 57-year-old Gibson, who spent the last five seasons as the skipper of the Arizona Diamondbacks, recently joined Fox Sports Detroit as an analyst. Gibson appeared on the April 6 Opening Day telecast but had not been seen since.

"I have faced many different obstacles in my life, and have always maintained a strong belief that no matter the circumstances, I could overcome those obstacles,"  Gibson said in a statement released by Fox Sports Detroit. "While this diagnosis poses a new kind of challenge for me, I intend to stay true to my beliefs. With the support of my family and friends, I will meet this challenge with the same determination and unwavering intensity that I have displayed in all of my endeavors in life. I look forward to being back at the ballpark as soon as possible."

As a player, Gibson won World Series championships with the Tigers (1984) and Dodgers (1988). Over his 17 big league seasons, Gibson hit .268 with 255 home runs, 870 RBIs, and a .352 on-base percentage while winning the 1988 National League MVP.

Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that impacts movement. Some high profile names that live with the disease include actor Michael J. Fox and Muhammad Ali.
