Following an honorary appearance at this year’s All-Star Game, many were left to wonder if this season was the swan song for Cabrera. But as things stand, it sounds like Miggy will be sticking around for one more season to finish his contract. The future Hall of Famer will turn 40 next April and is well beyond his prime. The 2023 season would be his 16th season in a Detroit Tigers uniform.
In 2022, Cabrera has posted a .268 batting average, .317 on-base percentage, and a .332 slugging rate in 91 games. Keep an eye on this story during the offseason to ensure Cabrera will return in 2023.
