Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera remains one of baseball’s most dangerous and powerful hitters, and he achieved one of baseball’s biggest milestones on Saturday.
Cabrera hit his 10th home run of the season and the 400th of his career, becoming the 53rd player in baseball history to do so while jumping ahead of Andrés Galarraga on the all-time list.
Here is a video of Cabrera having another day at the office.
The two-time American League MVP achieved this feat after the Tigers resumed their game against the St. Louis Cardinals, which was delayed due to rain.
Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre had just achieved this milestone as well, but it is highly unlikely that Beltre will finish with more career home runs than Cabrera since Beltre is 36 years old while Cabrera is 32.
This gives Cabrera plenty of time to reach the 500-homer plateau, which has only been reached by 26 players. He may even get to 600 if he can play through his lengthy $292 million contract extension, which runs through 2024.
