Retirement will wait for Miguel Cabrera


The essential Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera assured Friday that the 2022 season was not going to be his last in major league baseball.

Cabrera, 39, denied rumors that he would announce his retirement at the end of the current campaign, in an interview with The Detroit News.

“I'm not going to retire,” he said. Not until next year when my contract is up. There's no way that will happen.”

Cabrera was having a great first half of the season for a player his age before suffering a knee injury. However, he has only hit two doubles and one long ball since then in 21 games.

Tigers manager A.J. weeks by giving him several days off.

“We are going day by day and we will see where it takes us, concluded Cabrera. I'm not thinking about next season,” adding, however, that the 2023 campaign was going to go much better than this one.
