Miguel Cabrera faces pitcher for 1st time since June arm injury

LAKELAND, Fla.—Miguel Cabrera hit against a pitcher Monday for the first time since rupturing a tendon in his left biceps on June 12.

The 35-year-old hit, fielded, threw and ran the bases during the Detroit Tigers’ first full-squad workout of spring training.

“I feel good about being back on the field and playing,” the two-time AL MVP said. “I can’t be hurt this year. I want to do my job.”

Cabrera first strained a hamstring last year and then had the arm injury that required season-ending surgery. He was limited to 38 games.

Rather fitting, given that we were just discussing him in the Pujols thread.

Cabrera, Fulmer sound optimistic about their health

DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera and Michael Fulmer expect to be ready for the start of spring training.

The two Detroit standouts sound pleased with their progress after injuries interrupted the 2018 season. Cabrera played only 38 games before season-ending biceps surgery. Fulmer has dealt with knee issues.

The Tigers are holding their annual winter caravan this week, and both Cabrera and Fulmer were in attendance Thursday. The 35-year-old Cabrera says he’s feeling great and hopes he can stay healthy all season. He’s played more than 130 games just once in the past four years.
