CABRERA THRILLED WITH YOUNG SLUGGER
Wed, 22 Feb 2012 12:14 PM EST

Miguel Cabrera started smacking line drives all over a practice diamond at the Detroit Tigers’ spring training facility. Then Prince Fielder stepped up and cracked an exploding shot toward right field. Odds

Fielder appeared at camp Monday, entering a clubhouse that is increasingly becoming crowded even though the 1st full squad exercise isn’t till Friday. Fielder and Cabrera both came to camp early, along with a scattering of other position players.

“Does it mean you are going to win more games? No,” manager Jim Leyland asserted. “But it makes you ecstatic that blokes want to be down here with the men. It tells you fundamentally that winter’s gone, and they’d like to get down here and get to work.”

Monday was the 1st workout for pitchers and catchers, but Fielder and Cabrera put on the best show with their brief batting practice display. They made their way onto a back field after the pitchers were done using it for their drills.

Fielder and Cabrera started by throwing a bit with each other, then the 2 sluggers went to the plate with shortstop Jhonny Peralta and took some swings. Basketball scores

“Hitting with a team with Miggy and Prince Fielder — it was truly fun,” Peralta said. “It’s good to see that two blokes reported early, and they’re prepared to go.”

Fielder concluded to a $214 million, 9-year agreement with the American League Central champs in the offseason. The Detroit Tigers will put him and Cabrera in the middle of their lineup and with ace Justin Verlander also in the fold, Detroit has a grand threesome of MVP-caliber players in their primes.

Cabrera is anticipated to head off to 3rd base to make way for Fielder initially, but the 2 aren’t in the lineup for their defense. They mixed to hit 68 home runs last year.

“I’m extremely excited, but we’ve still got work to do,” Fielder said shortly after arriving in the clubhouse. “I cannot say it’s going to be guaranteed to have an ideal year because we have a good team. … You’ve got to do what people expect of you, 1st.”

Cabrera tried to do his part to make Fielder feel welcome.

“I was thrilled to see him today, man,” Cabrera asserted. “It’s all family here. We have to do a large amount of things to get him comfortable. … He’s going to feel a bit like he’s played for a large amount of years here.”

Fielder was introduced at a news conference in Detroit after agreeing to his contract. But there, he was accompanied by team managing. Now he is with a large group of new colleagues.

“I’m very respectful of all my players, but when a bloke like that shows up, men clearly take detect,” Leyland expounded. “When star players show up, folk take a look.”

In the meantime, Leyland stated that he expects wounded appointed hitter Victor Martinez to show up at camp at some particular point. Martinez’s left knee injury – which may make him miss the whole season – lead to the Fielder signing. Martinez has had knee surgery and still waiting for another operation.
