Miguel Cabrera reports no soreness after a hitting session

So far so good on Miguel Cabrera’s rehab from surgery to remove bone spurs and to repair a stress fracture in his foot. He has taken is first hacks in the cage and is feeling fine.

He’s not in camp yet — he’s reporting today — but Brad Ausmus says that he took some batting practice and texted him about it afterward, reporting no pain.

Cabrera hit .313/.371/.524 with 25 home runs and 109 RBI over 159 games last season and a lot of those games were played while battling injury.¬†Given that Victor Martinez will begin the season late due to knee surgery, having a healthy and productive Cabrera in the lineup is going to be critical to the Tigers’ early season success.
