Miguel Cabrera has a small fracture under his right eye, but they have told him he’ll be out only a couple of weeks. He had eight stitches.

According to Dr. Olney, Miguel Cabrera will miss a couple weeks of Spring Training action as a result of the ground ball he took to his face yesterday. The play, the result of as freakish a bounce as you’re going to see, knocked the Tigers goliath out of a game yesterday, bloodying his face as to resemble an MMA fighter.
The only fear with Cabrera missing two weeks leading into Opening Day is a lack of time spent improving his third base play. Which is, realistically, spitting into the ocean. This debacle is off to a swimming start!
