Tigers confirm Miguel Cabrera will play first base in 2014
Miguel Cabrera will move from third base to first base for the 2014 season, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski confirmed Wednesday.
The move of Cabrera, the 2013 American League Most Valuable Player, across the infield was expected after the Tigers traded first baseman Prince Fielder to the Rangers and prospect Nick Castellanos available to play third for Detroit.
Cabrera revealed in November that he told the Tigers he wanted to make the move.
Dombrowski: "We're looking at Nick Castellanos as our third baseman. Miguel Cabrera is going to first base for us." So that's now set.—
