Miguel Cabrera‘s return from a fractured orbital bone was delayed slightly, but manager Jim Leyland announced that he’ll be back in the Tigers’ lineup tomorrow and is expected to play the remainder of their spring training games.

And yes, he’s still going to play third base despite taking a hard one-hopper off the face 10 days ago.

Cabrera was hitting above .400 this spring before the injury and Leyland has said that he’ll be “shocked” if he’s not in the Opening Day lineup.

    Why is Jim Schwartz helping Cabrera off the diamond? Maybe Miggy can play DB, he’s got the right number…
