Detroit Tigers DH Victor Martinez will do some catching this spring and this year in order to keep his bat in the lineup, according to manager Brad Ausmus. 1B Miguel Cabrera could also move back to third base at times in order to get Martinez in at first base. "Obviously, last year, I didn't do anything (in the spring) and it caught me by surprise. Not really a surprise because I still prepare myself. I always have the mindset that I always get ready, like I'm catching every day, even knowing that I'm not doing it. But then I had to catch during the season, and thank God, my body felt good. And that's the most important thing. My body feels great. And I like it."

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera (hernia) said he feels stronger after having offseason surgery to fix his core muscles and fix a groin tear. He has changed his workout routine and has added exercises to strengthen his core. "I've gotten a lot stronger," Cabrera said. "I've tried to make sure everything's going to be good when I start baseball. That's what I do differently."
Fantasy Tip: Despite Cabrera's nagging injuries in 2013, he was still very effective. He remains a top-three fantasy baseball pick in this year's drafts.
