Cabrera makes an appearance

Cabrera got a chance to pinch hit in last night's All-Star game.

"It feels really tight," said Cabrera, who estimates he's about 80 percent. "I'm glad I got into the game for one at-bat."

I got home really late last night and didn't catch his AB live.  But when I finally did see it, he didn't look 80 percent to me.  Of course, that could be because pinch hitting isn't his thing or that he had never faced Haren before or maybe Haren was just that good last night.  Who knows, I sure don't.  But he didn't look like the normal Cabrera at the plate to me.

The good news is he has couple days to continue recuperating the jammed shoulder before the next game.
