CLEARWATER, Fla. — Miguel Cabrera left Monday's game with a bloody face after a hard grounder from Philadelphia's Hunter Pence hit him near the right eye.

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.

Cabrera is making the transition back to third base this spring because Detroit signed first baseman Prince Fielder.
