SHOW WORTHY: Sony Computer Entertainment America last night said Tigers 3B Miguel Cabrera will be the cover athlete for the forthcoming "MLB: The Show 14" video game. The title will be available in the spring for the PlayStation 4, and at present, is the only licensed simulation baseball game planned for next year. MLB has not signed a license with anyone for a title on Microsoft's Xbox One. As a result, initial Sony advertising for "MLB: The Show 14" includes a tagline that the title is "the first and only Major League Baseball simulation for next-generation consoles." Sony said the Cabrera cover choice was made by fellow MLB players (Eric Fisher, Staff Writer).
