Miguel Cabrera to play at 1B 'once or twice a week' per A.J. Hinch

Miguel Cabrera will likely play at first base "once or twice a week" this upcoming season, according to Tigers manager A.J. Hinch. (Cody Stavenhagen on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Cabrera has been the Tigers primary DH over the last two seasons but Hinch told reporters using him at first will "give the lineup more flexibility." The Tigers new manager also said "What I won’t do is break him. I’m not interested in playing him so much at first base that it hinders his availability throughout the rest of the week." The recently signed Renato Nunez will likely be the everyday first baseman for Detroit but it sounds like Miggy will get some run there as well.
