Cabrera working out with team

Spring training has effectively began for Miguel Cabrera Friday morning. He took his locker in the corner of the Tigers clubhouse, right next to manager Jim Leyland’s office, and prepared to get in his work. His manager, obviously, was glad to see him.

“One thing’s for sure: Our team got a whole lot better this morning,” Leyland said.

Leyland said Cabrera will be working out like every other player on the team. It’s his call when Cabrera is ready to play in games, and that could happen soon, but Leyland didn’t want to give a definite date.

“That’s hard to say,” he said. “I really believe position players are usually here about 3-4 days and they’re ready to play. Whether that’s the case with him, I don’t know.”

It has been noted that Cabrera is in good physical condition after working out with a personal trainer alongside Magglio Ordonez and Alex Avila for most of the offseason.

The Tigers won’t have an extensive morning of workouts today due to an MLBPA meeting and the 1:05 p.m. ET exhibition against Florida Southern. Cabrera, not surprisingly, won’t be available for that game, nor will Carlos Guillen as he continues to rehab his knee. Catcher Rob Brantly also isn’t expected to play after suffering a corneal abrasion.

Glad not to be the scorer keeping up with all the hits and changes – sure blow the cobwebs away!!

UH OH, BOESCH HATERS!!!!! hahahaha the youngsters look GREAT at the plate!

We see you, Jason! Sitting right next to Miggy. These pictures were in today’s Freep so if you get a minute, you’ll “feel the love.”

That could possibly be the worst thing for Boesch to do against a COLLEGE pitcher. Don’t get too excited jimmy. If the only thing Brennan Boesch does this year is hit home runs, he will be in the same position as last year. Go Tigers!

Looked throught the photo gallery about Miguel’s return to the field (on the Free Press site). He is a very fortunate guy.
His teammates are genuinely stoked and pleased to see him. He is well liked, blessed with skill, has a lovley young family and has a billion dollar job.
.
Let’s hope he understands the true value of all that.

Good pictures there. I still can’t believe we got Martinez. It’s not often you have a favorite player on another team and then your own team acquires him. If everyone can stay mostly healthy, we can have a lot of fun this summer.

I noticed the FSU kids in the background watching Cabrera take BP.

There is an excellent, and suprisingly humorous “Studio 42″ running right now with Bob Gibson and Tim McCarver. Tiger fans might remember that Gibson guy………….

Never missed a game when Gibson was pitching against the Tigers. He was intimidating, to say the least.
.
Victor Martinez…..what a treat that we got him.

“Studio 42″ was a good one last night, now I have to find the rerun of the full interview done with Al Kaline and Willie Horton.
