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 daily The Detroit News.

“I’m not going to retire,” he said. Not until next year when my contract is up. There is no chance of that happening.”

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

The manager of the Tigers, AJ Hinch, has also reduced the work of the native of Venezuela in recent weeks by granting him several days off.

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