GIF of the Day: Miguel Cabrera is really excited about Avisail Garcia's first career home run

Avisail Garcia hit his first career home run during today's game, and the Big Mig celebrated like none other in the dugout.

The comparisons, while premature, were obvious. Avisail Garcia, a near-double of superstar third baseman in both looks and physique, hasn't shown much power yet, but his 6'4" 240-pound frame suggests that he will hit some bombs in his time in Detroit.

The first one came this afternoon off Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel.


We're not sure whether Miguel Cabrera likes (or even knows of) the "Mini Miggy" moniker that Garcia has been given, but this much we do know: the real Miggy was real excited about this homer.


Here's hoping they go back-to-back sometime in the near future.
