One last lap for Miguel Cabrera

Infielder Miguel Cabrera has announced that the 2023 season will be his last in major league baseball.

Last year, the 39-year-old batted .254 and hit just five homers in 112 games.

In his career, Cabrera won a Triple Crown (2012), two All-American MVP awards (2012 and 2013), he was selected for the All-Star Game 12 times and won the World Series (2003) .
