DETROIT (APl of certainty: Baseball is harder than it looks on TV.”It’s so easy when you watch the game on TV. It’s so slow Jose Peraza Jersey ,” the Detroit slugger said. ”The game is so simple on TV.”It’s not nearly as simple on the field, of course, and right now all Cabrera can do is watch. The Tigers lost their star first baseman in the middle of June to a ruptured biceps tendon, and he’s out for the season. Detroit was in a rebuilding mode anyway, but losing one of the team’s top hitters was a significant blow.Cabrera was back at Comerica Park on Monday night to host an event supporting children’s health and youth baseball programs. He seemed to be feeling good, but he has a long way to go before playing again.”Right now it’s a little slow,” Cabrera said. ”Hopefully in a couple weeks I starting do more stuff, to be healthy again.”Cabrera said he goes back and forth between Michigan and Florida, and he thinks he’s making good progress toward being ready for spring training next year. The two-time American League MVP is 35 now http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , and this was supposed to be a crucial year for the veteran to show if he could still be one of the game’s most feared hitters after a poor showing in 2017.Instead, Cabrera has played only 38 games after never playing fewer than 119 in his previous decade with the Tigers.”Really hard, watch the games on TV. It’s really hard don’t be on the field with my teammates. It doesn’t matter if we win or lose. I want to be part of this process,” Cabrera said. ”Right now, I’m focused to be back next year and healthy.”Cabrera’s big contract extends through at least 2023, which means Detroit may have a hard time trading him as part of its rebuild. In 2016, he hit .316 with 38 home runs and 108 RBIs – his eighth straight year finishing in the AL’s top seven in batting average.Then last season, he hit .249 with only 16 homers and an unsightly .399 slugging percentage.There were some decent signs early this year. Cabrera hit .299 with a .395 on-base percentage. But he had only three home runs. He was hitting .323 when he went on the disabled list in early May with a hamstring strain . He came back June 1, but his bat was quiet from then until his season-ending injury June 12.Cabrera’s absence has left a big hole in the lineup Matt Harvey Jersey , and Detroit has backup catcher John Hicks playing first base quite a bit in his place.Only six players have reached both 500 home runs and 3,000 hits, and with 465 homers and 2,676 hits, Cabrera still has a good chance to join that group if he can come back and play several more seasons. His pursuit of those milestones is on hold now, though. And Detroit fans can only wonder how effective he’ll be going forward.Cabrera was cheerful Monday night and quick with a laugh, but it’s clear that being out of action is tough for him.”I can’t describe what I’m feeling right now,” Cabrera said. ”I need to stay focused, mentally stay focusing on trying to be back healthy next year.”— Postgame reactions from the Braves’ 4-2 loss to the Marlins on Saturday."The Braves had a rough night as they fell to the Marlins 4-2 and they also so both Tyler Flowers and Brian McCann get hurt. Flowers could potentially avoid missing any time Scott Schebler Jersey , but it seems reasonable to expect him to at least miss a game or two after taking a pitch off his hand. McCann for sure is headed for the injured list with a hamstring strain.Here is manager Brian Snitker talking about the injuries and the game.To further explain how his injury went down and his overall state of mind after it happened (as well as some kind words for Kyle Wright), Brian McCann spoke with the media as well.Tyler Flowers in his postgame interview seemed to indicate that normally he would have come out of the game after being hit like he was, but given McCann had already left the game leaving only Charlie Culberson as the emergency catcher, he stayed in. Unfortunately, he was so sore that he had to try and bunt rather than take an actual swing.Finally, to end things on a good note, Kyle Wright was quite good on Saturday night with only a pair of solo home runs as blemishes on his line. Here is Kyle talking about his first home start as an Atlanta Brave.
