Rumors that Miguel Cabrera was not going to perform in the final season of his contract with the Detroit Tigers seemed to have died down. However, they came to light again and there is talk of the possibility that the Venezuelan will not act in 2023, the last year that remains of the lucrative contract that he signed with the feline team.
Well-known journalist Lynn Henning offered his opinion on the matter and said that Cabrera is not very excited about playing next year. The Venezuelan has had significant physical ailments this year and his performance has dropped considerably.
“I suspect that Miguel Cabrera, being a man of immense baseball pride, will not push to play in 2023. His contract will be up if he and the Tigers agree that it makes sense for him to retire, and have a Great Farewell Day.” Henning wrote on the social network Twitter.
Evan Petzold, a journalist for the Detroit Free, added that Cabrera will meet with the Tigers’ chief operating officer, Scott Harris, to rule on the matter and reach an agreement between both parties.
Cabrera is 39 years old and has a guaranteed contract for one more year. However, he could reach an agreement with the team not to fulfill that last campaign.
