Cabrera leaves game after being hit by grounder
Cabrera was wearing sunglasses and it's uncertain whether the wicked one-hopper hit the right lens or just under it. The Tigers' All-Star wiped blood off with his hand and held a towel to his face as he walked off the field.
He was taken to a hospital to receive stitches and get precautionary X-rays.
Cabrera is making the transition back to third base this spring because Detroit signed first baseman Prince Fielder.
