It is no secret to anyone that Miguel Cabrera has been the best hitter for the Detroit Tigers in this first stage of the 2022 season.
His overwhelming pace in the batting cage once again considered him as that dangerous shoveler at each turn and if he continues like this, he will close this year with a flourish.
Tuesday night was a clear sign that 'El Tigre Mayor' is experiencing a special moment with the player, because against the Boston Red Sox he once again had another game of three hits this season.
For the Maracay slugger it was the eighth game of at least three hits this season, which equaled his 2021 mark. But beyond that, he reached 3.050 hits in his career, placing him three behind Panamanian Rod Carew , who is ranked 27th all-time
Now, Miguel Cabrera has been in charge of modifying his tone in the batting box this year, to the point of connecting more singles than doubles or even home runs, and what a result it has been for him.
According to the projections of the portal, www.baseball-reference.com, the Venezuelan envisions ending the campaign with 187 hits; highest mark since 2016 to close with 3.174.
His next 'victims'
On April 23, Miguel Cabrera became the 33rd player to join the club of three thousand hits; however, just two months later he already has 50 hits more than the precious figure.
For this reason, the Venezuelan aspires to close this penultimate year of his career in a hypothetical 17th position on that list and surpass the following figures:
- Rod Carew (3.053)
- Rickey Henderson (3.055)
- Craig Biggio (3.060)
- Ichiro Suzuki (3.089)
- Dave Winfield (3.110)
- Alex Rodriguez (3.115)
- Tony Gwynn (3.141)
- Robin Yount (3.142)
- Paul Waner (3.152)
- George Brett (3.154)
- Adrian Beltre (3.166)
