An MLB legend has said that the upcoming 2023 season will be his last.
The slugger for the Detroit Tigers said on Monday that he will call it quits after the 2023 season. This April, the future Hall of Famer will turn 40.

Cabrera hasn't had a batting average above.300 since 2016, but he's still young. a slash line of.308/.384/.524
In 433 at-bats as a designated hitter in 2022, Cabrera hit.254/.305/.317 with five home runs.
