Cabrera feeling fine
“I saw a picture of him yesterday on Kevin’s phone. He looks great. Beautiful. Looks great. No pain. Swelling’s going down. A little discolored there yet. But we’re going to take all precautions,” Leyland said of a picture shown to him by trainer Kevin Rand. “But he feels good. He wanted to come (to Bradenton) today. He told Dave (Dombrowski, the GM) he was ready to come play today, but obviously we’re not doing that.”
While it’s good news, it certainly won’t budge the Tigers from their timetable. The initial diagnosis included instructions for Cabrera to be held out of all activities for a week, before being re-evaluated.
Leyland cautioned against reading too much into Cabrera’s enthusiasm.
“It means just what it means: That he’s going to sit quiet for a week, and then be re-evaluated. That’s all that means,” the skipper said.
