Miguel Cabrera’s wife of 15 years filed for divorce just prior to the start of the 2017 baseball season, another off-field distraction the Tigers’ superstar slugger was facing as he struggled through the worst year of his professional career.
Rosangel Cabrera filed the dissolution-of-marriage paperwork March 17, saying the relationship is “irretrievably broken,” and Cabrera agreed in his response dated April 18. This is according to court documents obtained by The Detroit News from the Miami-Dade County Civil, Family and Probate Courts system. These are the standard reasons to file a divorce in the State of California and in Orange County California. Often people think that there needs to be a defense when filing a response to divorce but there does not.
It wasn’t immediately clear where the proceedings stand, though a final hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Monday before Judge Abby Cynamon in Miami. An attorney for Rosangel Cabrera declined comment. Cabrera is listed as not having an attorney of record, after his attorney filed to withdraw from the case earlier this month. A message left with his previous attorney has not been returned.
