When will Miguel Cabrera retire? He let us know

Miguel Cabrera revealed when he plans on retiring from baseball, and it’s not as soon as some experts predicted.

The Detroit Tigers star just hit his 500th career home run this week, and is well on his way to his 3000th hit. He’ll become one of just a select few players to reach both of those feats.

And assuming the Tigers keep him around, he can reach all kind of career milestones in MoTown. Cabrera plans on playing at least two more big-league seasons, and he’s performed well enough at the dish this season to warrant that expectation.

“I’m going to play two more years. I think that’s enough. I will be happy with 20 years in the big leagues if I can make it. I would say thank God for the opportunity and say two more years and I’m done,” Cabrera said on Wednesday morning, per the Detroit News’ Chris McCosky.

Detroit Tigers: Where does Miguel Cabrera fit in?

Cabrera could be a solid designated hitter eventually, especially if Spencer Torkelson fills in the first base slot. Tork is the team’s top prospect, and a former No. 1 overall pick. He’s a big bat the Tigers would like to eventually call up, likely next season.

With that in mind, now having to eschew a future Hall of Famer makes things easier. Miggy’s timeline should line up with the Tigers’ timeline.
