Cabrera to miss a week with a broken face

From Comcast SportsNet
LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera will miss at least a week after being struck in the right eye by a hard grounder. Cabrera received eight stitches, but Tigers President and general manager Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday that Cabrera's vision is "perfect" and he won't go on the disabled list. "We'll know a lot more in a week," Dombrowski said. "If he wants to go relax he can go home, and he's always welcome here (in Lakeland)." Cabrera said he's not in pain after being hit on Monday off a hard one-hop shot by Philadelphia's Hunter Pence. He was wearing sunglasses for one of the first times in his career. "Thank God, I had my sunglasses on," Cabrera said. "It just took a bad hop and I was unlucky. I am confident I can play on opening day." Cabrera is moving from first base to third after the Tigers signed Prince Fielder as a free agent. Dombrowski said there were imprints from the ball on the sunglasses. "It's part of the game," Cabrera said. "I can see out of my eye."
