Miguel Cabrera will arrive at Tigers camp in time to talk to the media at 4:30 p.m. EST this afternoon, and a Tigers spokesman said to expect “a decision” on the first baseman’s status then.
Cabrera has been away from camp after being arrested on DUI charges on Feb. 16. According to a Detroit News report, Cabrera’s agent, Fernando Cuza, met with Tigers brass for an hour on Wednesday evening. Cabrera was not in attendence.
The forthcoming “decision” could have something to do with an extended leave of absence for Cabrera. He’s been underdoing evaluation by MLB doctors and addiction specialists since the incident last week.
