Ex-Marlins owner says Cabrera disgruntled

May 18, 2018

Former Marlins executive David Samson says Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera is disgruntled and feeling underappreciated in Detroit.

“What I feel badly about is that he’s stuck in Detroit,” Samson said on CBS Sports HQ.

“He always wanted to come back to Miami. Every time I’d see him, over the years, at All-Star Games, [he would say] ‘Hey, I’m ready to come home.’ And we just didn’t have the payroll capacity.”

Cabrera was a four-time All-Star in five seasons with the Marlins and won a World Series ring in 2003 as a two-year-old rookie.

Cabrera, who is on the DL in Detroit, is batting .323 with three homers and 21 RBIs in 93 at-bats this year.
