With the recent announcement that St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, will play its last season in MLB next 2022, it is already beginning to speculate when the spikes will hang other two glories of Latin American baseball how are Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera, with the latter finally breaking the 500 home run barrier, most likely securing his spot. in the Cooperstown Hall of Fame.
The truth is that age does not forgive, and although Miggy is the youngest between Yadi and Pujols, he has already set a final date for when his retirement will be, as he told ESPN’s Sage Steele, his last season will be 2023, when his contract current season with the Detroit Tigers ends, ending his decorated career.
Two more years and until there. My right knee hurts a lot and I have to take care of myself during the offseason and be ready for the next one. I’m going to play two more years, I think that’s enough. I will be very happy with 20 years in Las Mayores if it can be given. I would thank God for the opportunity with two more years and I’m leaving.
The next mark in Miggy’s sights will be 3,000 hits, currently at 2,957 and past the 500 mark, at 501 after hitting five hundred last Sunday against the Blue Jays in Toronto.
