Cabrera to miss spring training, maybe Opening Day

While the Detroit Tigers are still somewhat optimistic about superstar Miguel Cabrera‘s Opening Day status, it is looking pretty official that he will not participate in much or any of spring training.

Back in October, Cabrera had surgery on his right ankle to remove bone spurs that had been bothering him since July. A stress fracture that was also found and repaired took the Tigers’ staff by surprise, and it has legnthened Cabrera’s recovery period.

Cabrera played through both injuries down the stretch until the Tigers were eliminated by the Baltimore Orioles in the America League Division Series. Still his numbers were incredible in September and October.

During that period Cabrera hit .379/.409/.709 with 10 doubles, eight home runs and 18 RBI. Those were his highest totals of the year since the month of May.

To find out more about when the nine-time All-Star, Triple Crown winner and back-to-back A.L. MVP will be back out on the field and hitting home runs head over to Baseball Hot Corner to read the rest of my post via the link below:

  • Seeing a Tigers lineup without Miggy in it is brutal. He’s that one reliable player that can change a game with one swing of the bat. The Tigers haven’t done a whole lot to put a better hitting team around him, either. I guess as long as he’s 100% when he comes back, and (hopefully) for the playoffs all will be good.
