Miggy aims to get back to all-fields approach

DETROIT -- Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera said Wednesday he's feeling more comfortable with the adjustments he has been making to get back to his all-fields approach at the plate. It didn't yield him any hits in the spacious right field of Petco Park. He's hoping it brings better results back in Comerica Park.

"I feel better," Cabrera said. "Got to get back."

He's trying to get back to the one-handed finish to his swing that produced a lot of his opposite-field hits. Cabrera had gotten into a two-handed follow through last year during his injuries, and it left him pulling more pitches this season.

Cabrera says he feels healthy now, but he's still trying to get back to the healthy swing.

"The last two series, Dodgers and San Diego, they give me good pitches to hit," he said. "The last two games I feel better."

Cabrera had a well-hit ball to the opposite field in each of those two games after not hitting a ball to right field with authority for about a week.

Though Cabrera feels healthy, he said he has a daily regimen of core exercises that he has to do to stay that way after core muscle surgery last fall.

"I think after the season, I'll be able to go to the beach with no T-shirt," Cabrera joked.
