Miguel Cabrera is a Venezuelan professional baseball first baseman and designated hitter for the Detroit Tigers of Major League Baseball (MLB).
The third promotion for Cabrera saw him go up to the Jupiter Hammerheads of the Florida State League’s High Class-A division.
Ozzie Guillén, the former Marlins coach, requested that Cabrera play third base instead of shortstop.
At this point in July, his average had stabilized at 277, leading him to earn his second trip to the Future’s game, where he recorded two singles.
He hit.278 with 43 doubles and 75 runs batted in for the year. He has only hit nine home runs in 489 at-bats before this point.
Cabrera was reassigned to the Carolina Mudcats of the Double-A Atlantic League to begin the 2003 season. At that time, Willis, the left-handed fireballer with whom he would later team up in the majors, was on the club once more.
Miguel went on a tear in his fourth professional season, dominating the field. Before getting promoted to the majors, he batted.402 in April and.365 in June with 10 home runs and 59 RBIs.
