Cabrera suffers a loss

Cabrera's 2006 winter ball debut is being delayed.

The Marlins' three-time All-Star was scheduled to join the Aragua Tigers on Wednesday. However, those plans changed when Berta Torres, Cabrera's grandmother on his mother's side, passed away on Wednesday.

Cabrera, who is from Maracay, Venezuela, is now expected to begin playing for the Tigers either on Friday or Tuesday. The Venezuela Winter League will be shut down a few days for Christmas.

Our sincere condolences go out to Miguel and his family.
