Miggy in history

With another season completed, let’s update where Miguel Cabrera ranks historically in offensive categories. He is...


33rd in MLB history in hits with 2,987. He needs 14 more to pass Roberto Clemente for 32nd.

8th in team history in hits with 2,145. He needs 221 more to pass Alan Trammell for 7th.


28th in MLB history in home runs with 502. He needs 3 more to pass Eddie Murray for 27th.

3rd in team history in home runs with 364. He needs 10 more to pass Norm Cash for 2nd.


18th in MLB history in doubles with 597. He needs 5 more to pass Barry Bonds for 17th.

6th in team history in doubles with 414. He needs 7 more to pass Lou Whitaker for 5th.


22nd in MLB history in RBI with 1,804. He needs 9 more to pass Frank Robinson for 21st.

5th in team history in RBI with 1,281. He needs 147 more to pass Charlie Gehringer for 6th.


18th in MLB history in total bases with 5,124. He needs 45 more to pass Cal Ripken for 17th.

5th in team history in total bases with 3,665. He needs 114 more to pass Harry Heilmann for 4th.


73rd in MLB history in runs scored with 1,505. He needs 2 more to pass Mike Schmidt for 72nd.

9th in team history in runs scored with 1,056. He needs 60 more to pass Sam Crawford for 8th.


61st in MLB history in walks with 1,199. He needs 3 more to pass Lance Berkman for 60th.

7th in team history in walks with 877. He needs 159 more to pass Norm Cash for 6th.

Assuming he plays a full season in 2022, on which lists will he move up? He’ll move up on the MLB lists in every one of the stats listed. In team history, he’ll move up in home runs, doubles, and total bases. He hasn’t scored 60 runs in a season since 2017, so that one seems like a stretch (he scored 48 runs in ‘21). Even with two seasons, he’s not going to rack up 159 more walks, so 7th is likely where he’ll finish. With two full seasons, he may get to 221 hits and move up on that team list - may - but he won’t in 2022.
