Despite entering the league in 2003, 38-year-old Miguel Cabrera is still being paid like he’s in his prime.

Miguel Cabrera Net Worth: $125 Million

Detroit fans howled in 2014 when the Tigers agreed to extend the first baseman’s contract through 2023 with two more optional years depending on his performance — despite still having two years left on his previous contract.

For a team struggling with payroll issues, a commitment of 10 years and $292 million to an aging star was a head-scratching decision. Predictably, the 11-time All-Star’s production dropped and his contract is now a burden to a franchise that is attempting to rebuild. A two-time MVP, Cabrera was one of the best hitters in the game in his prime, winning seven Silver Slugger Awards, four Batting Titles and the Triple Crown.
