NOTES: Cabrera took batting practice with the Tigers’ starters and looked as if he was swinging freely. He was smiling when he walked off. He stopped to sign autographs and take a few pictures with fans on the field near the Tigers’ dugout. “He was in good spirits and I think he was feeling much, much better to be honest with you,” Leyland said after the game. ... Fielder hit third for the first time since Aug. 3, 2010. ... A male fan was hit in the head by a foul ball off the bat of Victorino in the sixth inning, but he walked up for medical help with a towel over his face. ... Farrell said RHP Clay Buchholz, on the DL since early June with a strained neck, will make his third rehab start Thursday instead of Wednesday because his wife is expected to have labor induced for the birth of their second child. ... Leyland spoke highly of SS Jose Iglesias, acquired from Boston in a multiplayer deal on July 30. “He’s very gifted, he’s very competitive and very instinctive,” he said. “This kid’s a very interesting guy, very talented. We’re very fortunate to have him. We were lucky to get somebody like that when we were in dire need of somebody.” ... Leyland gave closer Joaquin Benoit the day off after he pitched in three of the previous four games.
