Miguel Cabrera is a Major League Baseball player from Venezuela. Cabrera mainly plays third base for the Detroit Tigers, but has spent time at first base and designated hitter.
He is a two-time American League MVP and an nine-time Major League Baseball All-Star, having been selected to both the National League and American League teams. He progressed through the Florida Marlins minor-league system, before being called up from the Double-A Carolina Mudcats in June 2003. Cabrera went on to help the Florida Marlins win the World Series that year as their clean-up hitter.
Cabrera has posted at least 30 home runs in nine different seasons with a career batting average of .321. He has also driven in over 100 runs in each of the last ten seasons.
2012 was Cabrera’s most successful year, individually, in terms of statistics. He became the first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to win the Triple Crown. Cabrera led the American League with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs, and 139 RBIs and was elected the 2012 AL MVP that season.
