SHARE Detroit Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera has been in alcohol abuse treatment

Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera has spent three months undergoing alcohol abuse treatment in Miami, he revealed this morning.

Cabrera, who was involved in a booze-fueled domestic disturbance at the tail end of last season, said he hasn’t had a drink since beginning counseling.

When you’ve got problems, said Cabrera, you can’t hide. As a ballplayer, you do something like that and you have a problem, Cabrera said. I want to play a lot of years and right now I feel comfortable. I feel great. The training will continue with the same doctor during spring training and the regular season.
