Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder homered for Detroit on Saturday in the Tigers' 10-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

The revamped Blue Jays won their exhibition opener as John Gibbons began his second stint as Toronto's manager.

Bruce Rondon struck out J.P. Arencibia and Josh Thole to escape a fifth-inning jam for Detroit. The 22-year-old Rondon has never pitched in the big leagues, but the hard-throwing righty could be the Tigers' closer this season after they let Jose Valverde go.

Anibal Sanchez threw two scoreless innings for Detroit. Fielder hit a two-run shot in the first off Brandon Morrow.
