So, we're sure you've already heard, but Miguel Cabrera is on the DL. He took a ground ball to the face yesterday, and apparently was bleeding when he left the field. Now we're hearing that he broke the bone underneath his eye.
On a pessimistic note, weren't we all thinking something like this was going to happen? Miguel is not exactly the world's best third baseman, despite his commendable effort to lose weight and get in shape. And although he's super athletic, he was bound to trip up sometime. It stinks that it had to maim his adorable mug, but, on the bright side, we're sure glad that this is happening during Spring Training, and not when we actually need him, during the regular season.
We here at April in the D felt this storm a'brewin'. It seemed impossible that the Tigers could win so many Spring Training games without a serious calamity to follow. Let's all just thank our lucky stars that it wasn't his ACL, or his hand, or those freaking obliques that seem to trouble the tigers so much!
So, you feel better Miguel! Put a big old bandaid on your face and do some sit ups in the meantime. Use the time to get mentally prepared for the season ahead! We are just so pumped.
