DETROIT -- Just like Miguel Cabrera followed in Justin Verlander's footsteps to American League MVP honors, he's now following his Tigers teammate to the supermarket aisle. It isn't a cereal, but a salsa.

Cabrera and PLB Sports, the same company that produced Verlander's Fastball Flakes this year, are teaming up for "Miggy's Salsa." Available in 16-ounce jars in mild, medium and hot flavors, the salsa will be sold for a limited time at Meijer stores in the Detroit, Lansing, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids areas.

Cabrera will donate a portion of the proceeds toward the Miguel Cabrera Foundation, which has helped fund renovations for youth baseball fields in Detroit, Miami and his native Venezuela.
