Tigers' Cabrera, wife welcome second child

SEATTLE -- Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera and his wife Rosangel are celebrating the birth of their second child, a baby girl.

Isabella Cabrera was born Tuesday night in Miami, where the family lives for most of the offseason. She joins the couple's first daughter, Rosangel, in the Cabrera family.

Miguel Cabrera missed the series against the Mariners to be with his wife for the birth. He's expected to return to Detroit for the start of their seven-game homestand Friday night against the A's.


Without Cabrera in the cleanup spot, the Tigers improvised their lineup for a second consecutive day. Magglio Ordonez again batted cleanup, but Ryan Raburn -- playing first base with Cabrera out -- moved into the third spot against M's lefty Jason Vargas. Johnny Damon, who batted third on Tuesday, moved back to his customary second spot Wednesday for the first time in nearly a week.
