Tigers' Alfredo Simon flashes 'slow split' in spring debut
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Alfredo Simon threw two scoreless innings in his spring debut Thursday, featuring a variety of pitches, including one that registered at 56 mph on the radar gun, MLive.com reports.

"That was a slow split," Simon said. "I use that in the game sometimes. ... I just want the hitter to train his eyes to see a slow pitch and after that I just come, like, with a hard two-seamer. It's going to be hard for him to hit the ball."

Simon struck out one in the appearance and let just one batter reach base, which came when he hit a batter with a pitch.

"I just feel really great," Simon said after his first outing with the Tigers. "I feel comfortable with my pitches and everything worked really good today."

Simon went 15-10 with a 3.44 ERA and 127:56 K:BB ratio in 196 1/3 innings with the Reds last season.

Manager: Miguel Cabrera really close to running on flat ground
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera (ankle) has run at 72 percent body weight on the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill, manager Brad Ausmus said Thursday. Once Cabrera can run at 80 percent body weight, he will be cleared to run on flat ground and have grounders hit directly at him.

"He should be really close," Ausmus said, per the Detroit Free Press.

Cabrera participated in batting practice on the field Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

"He was hitting balls 425 feet out to left-center," Ausmus said.

He also struck out Delmon Young.

"They put a really good lineup out," Sanchez said, per MLB.com. "I don't want to pitch around those guys. They're smart. I know they're going to swing because they're working, too."
