Miguel Cabrera said Monday that 2023 will be his final season in the MLB.
"It feels a little weird to say that," Cabrera said. "I thought I'm not going to say never, but I think it's time to say goodbye to baseball." Cabrera is set to turn 40 years old in April. He said he would like to stay involved in Tigers organization and help young players once his own playing career is over. "I have time to decide, but my goal is to stay in baseball, try to help, because I love baseball," he said.
Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 2-1 win over the Royals on Wednesday.
Cabrera’s first-inning blast traveled 411 feet and had an exit velocity of 102 MPH. The future Hall-of-Famer is hitting .253 with five homers and 41 RBI in 2022.
Miguel Cabrera (biceps) has been activated from the 10-day IL. Kody Clemens has been optioned to Triple-A.
Cabrera wasn't able to return from a bicep strain when first eligible but will rejoin the Tigers Monday. It's unclear how often he will be in the lineup with players like Spencer Torkelson back with the Tigers. Cabrera has a .256 average and .622 OPS on the season.
Miguel Cabrera will not be reinstated from the IL when he is eligible to come off the IL this week. Cabrera began taking swings off a tee Monday and will continue to ramp up to full batting practice if there are no setbacks from his batting session Monday.
Cabrera is dealing with a left biceps strain and has been on the IL since September 3rd. The team believes that without any setbacks the future hall of famer should be able to return by the end of the season. The Tigers should provide more of a firm timetable for Miggy's return once he resumes full batting practice.
Miguel Cabrera is going to play every other game during the Tigers’ current home stand as he deals with a right knee issue. A stint on the IL is possible.
Cabrera definitely has not been himself at the plate over his last seven games, posting just 3 hits in 25 at-bats. He is slashing .258/.319/.290 with four home runs and 36 RBIs in 90 games this season. Fantasy managers will want to find a replacement now, as even without an IL stint he is going to see limited playing time until his knee is better.
