Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera returned to action this weekend after a stint on the disabled list and didn’t waste any time in messing with Houston Astros All-Star Jose Altuve.

It’s not the first time Cabrera has had a little fun at the expense of the diminutive Altuve — a fellow Venezuelan. Last year, he lofted the 5’6″ second baseman over his shoulder prior to a game.

As usual, it’s been a busy year for Cabrera in terms of gamesmanship, although he behaved himself while signing autographs before yesterday’s game.

Say cheese! 📷
