There isn’t much to be truly excited about when it comes to the Detroit Tigers lately. Sure, they have made a few savvy signings, and we’re waiting to see exactly how this rebuild takes shape. But minor victories or not, this is still a club coming off back-to-back 98-loss seasons staring another rough year in the face.
We got one of those moments of true optimism on Friday: Miguel Cabrera is swinging a bat again.
As his caption indicates, these are Cabrera’s first swings after six months of rehab following surgery to repair a torn biceps muscle.
Even with a healthy Cabrera, the Tigers may not be all that good in 2019. But a return to form for the two-time MVP would at least make the upcoming season a lot more fun for fans to watch.
