Former Expos shortstop Orlando Cabrera is the latest former major leaguer to come out in support of the return of Major League Baseball to Montreal. Following a pair of exhibition games which drew over 90,000 fans and featured a reunion of the Expos 94 team, Cabrera told the website ExposNation.com that he would welcome the opportunity to become part of the citys push to bring baseball back. “Thank you so much for all of the support you gave me over the years,” Cabreara said. “You and the city were great to me. Dont stop pushing for a return of Major League Baseball to Montreal. Keep it up. I would love to be a part of a franchise back in the city.” Cabrera retired in 2012 following a 15 year career, eight of which were spent with the Expos before he was traded to the eventual World Series champion Boston Red Sox in 2004. The Expos left Montreal prior to the 2005 season, but grassroot campaigns with the backing of the likes of former player Warren Cromartie have rekindled interest in the prospect of a return, although stadium and ownership issues continue to exist.

DETROIT -- Prince Fielder was placed on the disabled list Friday, days before he is scheduled to have season-ending neck surgery. The move by the Texas Rangers came a day after the team said Fielder would have cervical fusion surgery Tuesday for the herniated disk in his neck. General manager Jon Daniels said he expected a second opinion to confirm the initial recommendation for the operation. It is the first time the durable first baseman has been on the DL in his career. Before a nerve root block injection to treat his neck last Saturday, Fielders 547 consecutive games played was the longest active streak in the majors. Fielder, who turned 30 earlier this month, missed only one game the previous five seasons and hadnt missed a game since Sept. 14, 2010. Fielder went on the 15-day DL, retroactive to May 17. Infielder Donnie Murphy was recalled from an injury rehab assignment and activated for the game against the Tigers. Mitch Moreland was set to start at first base, where he played last year before the trade for Fielder pushed him toward the designated hitter role. "A big blow for us as a team, losing him in the middle of the lineup," Moreland said. "But weve been dealing with adversity all year." Moreland hit 23 home rruns last season.ddddddddddddHe was hitting .275 entering Friday nights game at Detroit. "Prince is on the DL. We dont have him," manager Ron Washington said. "And theres nobody who can replace him, so let Mitch Moreland be Mitch Moreland. Dont even mention Mitch Moreland in the same breath with a Prince Fielder." Murphy was placed on the disabled list May 8 with a neck strain. He was hurt when he tripped at first base trying to beat out a ground ball the previous day against Colorado. He played six games on an injury rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock, and Friday was the date he was eligible to return to the roster. The Rangers have a majors-high 13 players on the disabled list. They have had 17 DL placements this season, also the most in the majors. Fielder hit .247 with three home runs and 16 RBIs in 42 games in his first season with the Rangers. The only time he has played fewer games was when he appeared in 39 as a rookie in 2005 with Milwaukee. The Tigers, meanwhile, sent minor league infielder Francisco Martinez outright to Double-A Erie, a move that cleared room on the 40-man roster for right-hander Corey Knebel. Knebels contract was purchased by the Tigers from Triple-A Toledo.
