New, 8 comments

Not going to spend a lot of time on this, other than to tie off the strings on last year's disappointing episode.

Miguel Cabrera pleaded no contest to DUI, which he was arrested for just before the beginning of spring training last year. He received a year's probation, six months with his license suspended, and a fine of $1,436.23, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"Miguel Cabrera is determined not to allow this to go on any further," his lawyer, Michael Kessler, said in a statement. "He wants this behind him before the start of spring training. For that reason, and for that reason only, Miguel Cabrera asked me to settle this case today."

"Miguel Cabrera has kept the organization informed on this personal matter, and we fully support his decision," the Tigers said in a released statement.

Cabrera must attend DUI school, as well.
