Tigers 3B Cabrera gets medical clearance to play
Tigers star Miguel Cabrera gets medical clearance to play, expected back in lineup soon
By The Associated Press

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) ' Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera has been given medical clearance to play again.

The third baseman has been out since being hit in the face by a bad-hop grounder on March 19. The ball broke a bone below Cabrera's right eye and caused a gash that needed eight stitches.

The Tigers say Cabrera was examined Tuesday and cleared to resume his spring training activity. Cabrera is expected to return to the lineup within a couple of days, although manager Jim Leyland hasn't said exactly when he'll play.

Detroit opens the season on April 5 at home against Boston.

Cabrera led the majors last year with a .344 batting average. He also hit 30 home runs and had 105 RBIs for the AL Central champions.
