File this one under “ouch.” New old third baseman Miguel Cabrera took a hot shot off the bat of Hunter Pence just under his right eye in the first inning of today’s Grapefruit League tilt between the Tigers and Phillies at Bright House Field in Clearwater, Florida.

Pence stung a grounder that took a high hop that plunked Cabrera, catching a piece of his sunglasses that just might have saved him from more serious injury. Cabrera came out of the game “under his own power” but, as you can see from this lovingly screencapped shot, bled like a stuck pig.

As we “await reports” on Cabrera’s condition, I feel confident in saying the Tigers’ season is over and signing Prince Fielder was a huge mistake.
