MIGUEL CABRERA MAY SPEND SPRING TRAINING IN REHAB

MIGUEL CABRERA MUGSHOT: HAPPY DRUNK?

Slugging Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera was not at the first full day of Spring Training workouts today. Cabrera was arrested Wednesday for drunk driving. He has a history of alcohol problems.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Cabrera may be out for weeks. The Tigers, Cabrera’s agent, and the MLB Players Association talked and decided his best course of action was to “meet with doctors” while acknowledging the first baseman has “had a problem” with alcohol in the past.

Former Major League pitcher Don Newcombe, now a substance abuse counselor, told Fanhouse.com that Cabrera “needs to confront his problems” or “the problem is going to get worse,not better.” At 84, Newcombe has been sober the last 47 years.
