The Detroit Tigers made another aggressive move Monday, acquiring second baseman Omar Infante and right-hander Anibal Sanchez from Miami in exchange for 21-year-old righty Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers.
Major league baseball teams started coming to Florida for spring training almost a century ago, traveling by rail from the often still-frozen North to get in shape and play some exhibition games in the sun.
The Miami Marlins have spent the better part of the last two months assembling a team they hope will spark enough fan interest to fill up the seats in the team’s brand new stadium; and they’re not done yet.
The Detroit Tigers used solid pitching and a three-run homer to blow open the game against the Marlins on their way to a 6-1 victory.
With a squad made up of mostly minor leaguers non-roster players, the Florida Marlins still managed to hammer the Detroit Tigers, 9-5.
Just weeks after getting arrested during a bizarre drunk driving incident in South Florida, Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera may be getting close to finally reporting to spring training.
Former Marlins and current Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera was arrested late Wednesday night for DUI after he was found on the side of the road with his car’s engine smoking, but that was just the beginning.
