Quick hits

• Octavio Dotel continues to receive treatment for inflammation in his right elbow and has not started throwing again, according to Rand. Dotel will resume throwing only when the inflammation symptoms are gone. When the Tigers placed Dotel on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, Leyland said the hope was that a few days of rest would clear up the swelling so that he could start throwing on a Minor League rehab assignment.

• Cabrera received his 2012 Tiger of the Year award Friday afternoon from members of the Detroit chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

• Avisail Garcia went 0-for-4 Thursday night in the first game of his rehab assignment for Class A Lakeland. Garcia has been on the 15-day disabled list since the last week of Spring Training with a bruised right heel.
