Detroit Tigers star third baseman Miguel Cabrera was voted Player of the Year by his fellow major leaguers at the Major League Baseball Players Choice Awards.

According to the official MLB website, Cabrera won back-to-back Player of the Year honors with his 44 home runs and 137 RBIs. By hitting .348 for the season, Cabrera also won his third consecutive batting title, matching an accompolishment achieved in 1920 by Rogers Hornsby for a right-handed hitter. 

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who won the National League Outstanding Pitcher award, finished runner-up to Cabrera in the voting. Cabrera also topped Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who lead the majors with 53 homers, and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout for American League Outstanding Player honors. 

Cabrera said it feels great but it didn't come easy for him.

"It's a great feeling. It was a tough season. It means a lot. 

"It's hard. A lot of people ask me the same thing. I say,'You know what we're going through every day. In the field, we focus on what we're trying to do, help our team win games.'"

Cabrera's Tigers, who lost in six games to the eventual World Series champions Boston Red Sox in six games in the 2013 ALCS, certainly made their presence felt on this day. The team swept Player of the Year, Outstanding Hitter and Outstanding Pitcher honors, the first time it was accomplished in four years.

Cabrera snagged the first two awards while his teammate, starting pitcher Max Scherzer, won the third.

For his excellence on and off the field, recently-retired New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera earned the Marvin Miller Man of the Year, in addition to him copping American League Comeback Player of the Year honors. He had 44 saves last season after sitting out most of 2012 with a knee issue. 

Pittsburgh Pirates starter Francisco Liriano won the National League equivalent.

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Wil Myers was recognized as the American League Outstanding Rookie while Miami Marlins starter Jose Fernandez emerged as the National League's top rookie.

Royals, Giants used to long layoffs thus far

Oct 20 2014 5:03pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Gordon took a big rip at a batting-practice fastball, fouled it off badly into the cage, and ducked when the carom nearly hit him in the head. Gordon let out a huge laugh, and so did a bunch of his Kansas City Royals teammates watching Monday’s workout. "I can’t believe that just happened, dude," pitcher James Shields razzed. It’ll be more frustrating than funny if those are the same awkward swings the Royals and San Francisco Giants ...

Free Agent Profile: Michael Morse

Oct 17 2014 9:07am CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

Michael Morse has provided notice that he is still a force at the plate, but his defensive limitations remain a major factor in his market. He made good on the one-year, $6MM deal he signed with the Giants, but what kind of contract will he achieve in his second successive turn at free agency? Strengths/Pros You could probably write this section fairly in just one word: bat. Over 482 plate appearances with the Giants, Morse put up a stro ...

Free Agent Profile: Colby Rasmus

Oct 11 2014 8:02am CDT | Source: MLB Trade Rumors

Colby Rasmus entered the year as one of the more intriguing pending free agents. Coming off of a big 2013 campaign, he rated eighth among all expected free agents in MLBTR’s first Free Agent Power Rankings installment back in March. While his upside remains tantalizing, however, the Excel Sports Management client has yet to establish himself as a consistent presence. And the 2014 season magnified some of his weaknesse ...

Complete Offseason Guide, Predictions for Detroit Tigers

Oct 6 2014 2:56pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Through the second half of the season, everyone was constantly waiting for the Detroit Tigers to get their act together, pull away from the Kansas City Royals and run away with the AL Central crown. It never materialized that way, but Detroit was fortunate enough to win the division and avoid the dice roll that is the Wild Card Round. Surely for the ALDS, the Tigers would flip that switch—being anchored by a few of the biggest stars in the game today—and roll on ...
