Brace yourself, Prince Fielder — Miguel Cabrera might want his old position back. They don’t call it “the hot corner” for no reason, and Cabrera was reminded of that during the Tigers spring training game against the Phillies on Monday. As you can see from the photo above that @WorldofIsaac shared with us, Cabrera ate a ground ball that took a nasty hop off the grass during the first inning. It appeared that the ball hit his sunglasses, which caused a nasty gash under Miguel’s right eye.
After the injury occurred, Tigers beat writer Chris Iott tweeted the following: “Miguel Cabrera is bleeding as much as I have seen a baseball player bleed. Cut near his eye. Game on ESPN.”
