Cabrera headed to camp, to talk with reporters

Miguel Cabrera is headed back to Tigers camp, at least for now. The team has scheduled a 4:30 press conference on the field at Joker Marchant Stadium, where Cabrera will talk with reporters about his situation.

MLB Network and will broadcast the press conference live.

It’ll be Cabrera’s first public remarks — and his first time in camp — since his arrest eight days ago in Ft. Pierce, Fla. on charges of driving under the influence and resisting an officer without violence. Since then, Cabrera was examined by a doctor earlier this week to determine his condition and figure out how his treatment should proceed.

According to the Detroit News, Tigers president/general manager Dave Dombrowski met Wednesday evening with Cabrera’s agent, Fernando Cuza of SFX, in Dombrowski’s office at Joker Marchant Stadium. Presumably, they were working out the details for Cabrera’s eventual return.

It is not known when or how Cabrera arrived in Lakeland from his South Florida home.

I thought we witnessed a pretty lame media opp here today. Don’t get me wrong, I wish Miguel well and hope he and his family have a good life. But today was a pretty “fluff” one in my opinion. Both from Miguel and from Dombrowski.
Let’s get on with things here and let bygones be bygones. Let management also state unequivocally to Miguel that they will not suupport him again and sweep this away—again. This is a proud franchise with a proud fan support base that deserves better than having to worry about stuff like this happening.
