Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Major League Baseball batting champion Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers probably will be ready for the 2014 season after surgery today on a left groin strain, the team said.

The 30-year-old third baseman will undergo physical therapy for the next two months, the Tigers said in an e-mailed statement.

Cabrera in 2012 became the first hitter in 45 years to win baseball’s Triple Crown, leading the American League in batting average, home runs and runs batted in. This year he hit an AL-best .348, while his 44 home runs and 137 RBI trailed only Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, who had 53 homers while driving in 138.

An eight-time All-Star, Cabrera has hit .321 with 365 home runs and 1,260 RBI over his 11-year career. He’s had at least 30 home runs with more than 100 RBI in each of the past seven seasons and was the AL Most Valuable Player in 2012.

The Tigers (93-69) won the AL Central this season before losing in six games to the Boston Red Sox in the AL Championship Series.
