Miguel Cabrera has made it clear that he is not satisfied just playing DH and that he wants to get some time at first base in 2021. Whether or not that will happen will be up to whoever the Detroit Tigers decide to hire to become their next manager.
Cabrera, who is 37, has admitted his knee causes his pain every day but it is something that he will deal with for the remainder of his baseball career.
The question is, how much longer will Miggy play? Will he retire as a member of the Tigers?
Cabrera recently sat down for his first interview in six months (reporters had to submit questions in advance) and he was asked about his future with the Tigers. Miggy said he plans to play out his current contract (3 more years) but that he does not know what will happen once that is over.
“I have three more years on my contract,” Cabrera said. “And I am going to play them. I don’t know what’s going to happen after my contract is over. My focus right now is playing these next three years and then we will see what happens.”
Miguel Cabrera did not talk to reporters during the regular season. In a recorded session with submitted questions, he talked about his future with the Tigers.

Nation, do you think Miguel Cabrera will hang up his cleats once his current contract expires or will he re-sign with the Tigers? Or, will he decide to finish his career elsewhere?
