Cabrera held out of workout

Word from the Tigers is that Cabrera was excused from Monday’s workout for a previously scheduled appointment, not related to any ailment. In other words, no reason for concern. He was back on the field taking batting practice near the end of the Tigers workout.


Hi Jason,
If JV gets put on the WBC roster for Team USA, any planning to put him on track for the beginning of the season probably goes out the window, or at least gets a lot more complicated, right?

In terms of scheduling, Matt, it would get more complicated to line him up to pitch Opening Day. He wouldn’t be pitching every five days with Team USA like he would be with the Tigers. But it would still be doable. He just might need to skip a turn down the stretch in the spring, or maybe make an abbreviated start in a Minor League game, to line him up to go April 6. He’ll definitely be ready to open the season, one way or the other.
