Just a day after telling the Detroit Free Press that he didn't "feel well" and scared fans that he'd retire after this year, Miguel Cabrera announced he is coming back in 2023.
"No way am I going to quit… Next year I’m going to be right here," he said.
The Tigers legend had been wanting to play out his contract, saying last year that he was going to play "two more years, that's it," via Detroit Free Press."
