Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus gave an update Thursday on first baseman Miguel Cabrera.
Cabrera had offseason ankle surgery, but he says he hopes the hardest part of his recovery is over. He’s been hitting in the cage, and he says every day he feels his ankle getting stronger.
For the first time in a while, the Detroit Tigers may not be favored to win the AL Central.
Cabrera was the first to break his good news, tweeting that he was thanking God because he can now begin his activities.
The team hoped to get clearance Tuesday for Cabrera to begin baseball activity.
Cabrera played 159 of 162 games in the 2014 season despite the injuries and still turned in a batting average of .313 and 25 homers.
After Cabrera posted the picture, Rand confirmed Cabrera has been cleared to leave the walking boot in the dust.
Even limited by the injuries, the two-time MVP turned in a batting average of .313 and smacked 25 home runs and a career-high 52 doubles.
Miguel Cabrera has been updating his Instagram page quite frequently lately.
.330, 44 home runs and 139 RBI was good enough for Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera to win the first Triple Crown since 1967.
