What about Miggy batting 2nd? Probably not, says Tigers skipper

What about Miggy batting 2nd? Probably not, says Tigers skipper

Brad Ausmus said Nick Castellanos wants to hit second, but the Tigers dont want their young third baseman to change his approach at the plate. LAKELAND, Fla. -- Day 2 of what could be a month-long debate about who will bat second in the Detroit Tigers lineup has left manager Brad Ausmus somewhat exasperated. But he did drop two interesting tibdits on Thursday before the Tigers played Florida Southern College in an exhibition game.  * The idea of batting Miguel Cabrera second has "crossed his mind," but he hasn't seriously considered it. "Miggy's been pretty...

The time the Orioles failed at intentionally walking Miguel Cabrera

The time the Orioles failed at intentionally walking Miguel Cabrera

One of the darkest nights of the dark Orioles seasons came when they couldn’t even properly execute an intentional walk. The intentional walk as we know it is dead. MLB announced back on Tuesday that, starting this season, pitchers would no longer have to actually lob four pitches out of the strike zone for the batter to get first base. From here on, at least unless they change their minds, an intentional walk will just happen with a signal from the dugout and the batter gets the base automatically. Some people out there have very strong feelings about this change, probably because it is...

Tigers spring training notebook: Expect unusual lineups for early games

Tigers spring training notebook: Expect unusual lineups for early games

You guys will have a field day with the some of the lineups I put out there, Ausmus said. LAKELAND, Fla. -- Do not, Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said, read anything into the lineups he writes down in the games that occur before the World Baseball Classic. He'll do what he can to maximize the opportunities for players who want and need at-bats, and that includes Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez, who are playing for Team Venezuela. Could that mean Miggy or Victor hitting lead off? Perhaps, although Ian Kinsler is also bound for the WBC, playing for Team...

Miguel Cabrera adds boxing to winter repertoire

It helps footwork, you feel stronger in your shoulder. But its all about here, he said, tapping his forehead. LAKELAND, Fla. -- While much of Venezuela is riveted to the World Baseball Classic next month, there will be another event competing for the country's attention. Jorge Linares, the World Boxing Association lightweight champion, has a title rematch against Anthony Crolla on March 25 in Las Vegas. Linares is Venezuelan and, yes, he just so happens to be a Friend of Miggy. Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera said Linares helped him add boxing to his...

Miguel Cabrera, a man without a country, coped with offseason melancholy

Miguel Cabrera, a man without a country, coped with offseason melancholy

The Tigers first baseman has a permanent future home in Cooperstown, N.Y., but his prospects for moving home to strife-torn Venezuela is not as certain. This is an opinion piece by MLive.com columnist David Mayo. LAKELAND, Fla. -- When he signed his first contract, Miguel Cabrera admits contemplating the big numbers he might compile, maybe 3,000 hits, 400 home runs, 1,500 RBIs. Few think that way, and even the earmarked-for-greatness Cabrera quickly discovered statistics happen but chasing them is unimportant. What qualifies as important has taken a stark turn...

Victor Martinez, Alex Avila are options to give Miggy an occasional rest at 1st

Im hoping (Martinez) can play some first base this year, because Miggy could use some more days off his feet DH-ing, manager Brad Ausmus said. LAKELAND, Fla. -- Miguel Cabrera used to scoff at his old coach in Venezuela who predicted he would one day be a first baseman -- and a good one. With three full seasons under his belt since he moved to first for good, he's happy with his home on the right side of the infield. "When the time came and I played first, everybody called me and said, 'You see. I told you!,'" Cabrera said on Saturday. "So right now, I'm...

Tigers spring training notebook: Jaws drop when Miggy arrives

Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Ian Kinsler and Justin Upton all participated Saturday in the first full-squad workout. LAKELAND, Fla. -- The biggest stars are frequently the last to arrive to spring training camp, and there is no bigger star on the Detroit Tigers than Miguel Cabrera. "I think for young guys, especially the first time in big-league camp, there's a little bit of a dropped jaw," said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus. "'Oh, there's Miguel Cabrera.' He's pretty recognizable." Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Ian Kinsler and Justin Upton all participated Saturday...

2017 TigsTools: Best Hitter

There are few things more fundamental to the game of baseball than hitting, but producing consistent hard contact remains one of the most difficult feats in sports. Elite hitters like Miguel Cabrera are a rare treat, but even average hitters who bat .260-270 annually can provide a great deal of value. Unfortunately, the Tigers don't currently have anyone in their system who projects to hit .300 on a regular basis, but there are a handful of promising bats in the system. Head inside to see who th
