Tigers' Alex Avila: Miguel Cabrera Has Lost 25 Pounds This Offseason

The Detroit Tigers' Alex Avila joined ESPN's Karl Ravech for an interview today, excited to talk about his expectations for this coming season. And off the air, he gave Ravech an interesting little tidbit: Teammate Miguel Cabrera has lost 25 pounds this offseason.

The slugging 28-year-old has been one of the most productive hitters in baseball over the last eight seasons, but his weight has been a frequent concern. He's usually listed at 240, but that number might be a bit of an undersell.

The news of a slimmed-down Cabrera is huge for the Tigers, who acquired superstar Prince Fielder in free agency this winter and will try to move Cabrera to third base. A little weight loss may help Cabrera field the new position.

Cabrera led the American League last year with a .344 average, a .448 on-base percentage and 48 doubles. He led the Tigers to 95 wins and the American League Championship Series, where they came up short against the Texas Rangers.
