Miguel Cabrera to Be Evaluated by Doctors

Filed under: ,

Miguel CabreraLAKELAND, Fla. -- Miguel Cabrera was on his way to Tigers camp late Wednesday. He won't arrive before the middle of next week.

Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski said Saturday that Cabrera, arrested late Wednesday in Fort Pierce, Fla., on suspicion of drunken driving, will be evaluated early next week by a doctor selected jointly by Major League Baseball and the players' union. A treatment plan will be decided upon after that, Dombrowski said.

"He wanted to come (to Lakeland) yesterday," Dombrowski said, "but it didn't take long (to convince him to be evaluated) because it's one of those where he understands what's best for himself. And he's willing to cooperate."

So there's no telling when Cabrera will return to baseball.

"The regular season's a while away yet," Dombrowski said. "Even when you deal with most (rehabilitation) programs, if you deal with programs, most of them are 30-day programs -- and I'm not saying that's what he's going into."
