Miguel Cabrera annoyed by trade talk

(CLEVELAND) – If the Detroit Tigers are going to trade away some of their star players, Miguel Cabrera wants them to get on with it. Cabrera told reporters Sunday that the trade rumors that have swirled around the Tigers organization have become tiresome, especially for the players who have to address them daily. Speaking before Sunday's game at Cleveland, Cabrera says if they are going to trade me then do it. If they are going to trade some of my teammates, then do that. Cabrera, 34, has battled injuries throughout this season and is on pace for his worst offensive output since his rookie year in 2003, when he batted .268 as a 20 year old with the Miami Marlins. The two-time MVP is batting just .264 with 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in 74 games this season for the Tigers (39-48), who enter the All-Star break mired in fourth place in the AL Central with the league's third-worst record. Cabrera is in the second year of an eight-year, $248 million deal, so a trade involving the 2012 Triple Crown winner could prove difficult given the remaining money on his contract. But other Tigers stars, including ace pitcher Justin Verlander, outfielder J.D. Martinez and closer Justin Wilson, have been prominently mentioned in trade rumors.
