Has Miguel Cabrera played his final game at first base for the Detroit Tigers?

That seems very possible as a report has surfaced that an MRI on Cabrera’s right knee has revealed “chronic changes” due to a long career.

Cabrera has been seen by four specialists and though surgery was discussed, the recommendation was to treat the symptoms as they come. Reports are that he will be strictly playing DH for the foreseeable future.

When asked about his situation, Cabrera offered up some advice.

“The only advice I can say to young kids is take care of their body when they have to,” Miguel Cabrera said. “When they have something, stop playing for a week and come back. Don’t play through pain, because you’re going to pay the price later.”
