Tigers manager Jim Leyland isn’t ready to proclaim Miguel Cabrera the Most Valuable Player in the American League, but it’s clear he likes his guy.

Cabrera hit a two-run, opposite-field home run Wednesday night to get Detroit started in a 7-1 victory over Cleveland, and he later added a sacrifice fly.

The night before, his two-run home run accounted for both Detroit runs in a 3-2 loss to the Indians. He pulled that ball to left.

Cabrera continues to awe his teammates with his hitting feats.

“He hits them to right field like I hit them to right field,” said Alex Avila, who bats left-handed. “He’s just an amazing all-around hitter. To me, it’s not even a question. He’s the MVP. Listen to the (home) crowd. They’ll tell you.”
