LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Miguel Cabrera says he's feeling fresh heading into a new season.
The two-time AL MVP was an early arrival at spring training for the Detroit Tigers this season.
Cabrera was banged up during the stretch and postseason last year. The Tigers lost to Boston in the AL championship series.
Cabrera said Tuesday that he feels fine and doesn't plan to take any extra precautions this spring.
The slugger backed up his Triple Crown season of 2012 by hitting a league-high .348 with 44 homers and 137 RBIs last year.
Cabrera will be on the move this year. He's switching from third base back to his previous spot at first base. The Tigers traded star first baseman Prince Fielder to Texas in the offseason.
