"That's my goal."
Analysis: The 32-year-old slugger hit .338 to win his fourth AL batting title in five seasons in 2015, but he played only 119 games. It has been a while since Cabrera had a fully healthy year, and that is a concerning trend for a Detroit team trying to recapture the form that enabled it to win the division every season from 2011-2014.
