Those who saw Cabrera emerge as a possibility believed that he was twice as much a hitter as a premier slugger.
A complete offensive machine
They were all wrong: the only word to describe Cabrera and his offensive profile would be “complete”: it has gap power (for doubles), over-the-fence power (for homers), communication ability (for batting average) and plate discipline, walking. For.
He can do it all on the plate: probably nothing more now, since he’s already 39 years old and not like Time and Age Forgiveness, but in his prime time, there was probably no right-handed heater like him.
Since he has at least one more year to play after 2022, he could see him surpass more legendary players in the doubles, hits and home run divisions.
For now, he’s having a quiet fruitful season for the Tigers, hitting 289 / .333 / .400 with six two-baggers and three round-trippers.

He is far from the hitter he was, but he can still help an MLB ball club.
