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.
