LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hit against a pitcher Monday for the first time since rupturing a tendon in his left biceps on June 12.

The 35-year-old hit, fielded, threw and ran the bases Monday during the Detroit Tigers' first full-squad workout of spring training.

"I feel good about being back on the field and playing," the two-time AL MVP said. I can't be hurt this year. I want to do my job."
