Venezuela, Ilitch, Tigers' future all on Cabrera's mind

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) When Miguel Cabrera takes the field for Venezuela in next month's World Baseball Classic, he'll be trying to bring some much-needed joy to his native country.

"Our country's in bad shape right now. There's a lot of problems in Venezuela. It's like, two sides, you know?" Cabrera said. "I think sport can help any country."

Cabrera is back at spring training, preparing for his 10th season with the Detroit Tigers, and what began as a routine session with reporters Saturday after the team's first full-squad workout quickly turned into a more pensive discussion. Cabrera can be guarded when talking to the media, but he has a lot on his mind heading into the 2017 season.
