Miguel Cabrera Tigers position players are scheduled to report on Friday, but it's still unclear if Miguel Cabrera will be among them. Cabrera was arrested and charged with DUI and other charges on Wednesday night.

Dombrowski said he expects Cabrera to join the team, but he still doesn't know when.

"I fully expect Miguel Cabrera to be with us," Dombrowski said, according to the Detroit News . "It's too early to make that a 100 percent-type statement, but I've been involved with this type of treatment situation in the past, and I would anticipate that."

He added that he will know more on Friday.

Cabrera has a history with alcohol abuse and underwent counseling last winter.

“I was completely shocked. I didn’t think there were any problems there because they have been thoroughly addressed," Dombrowski said, according to the Detroit Free Press . "But I’ve said this all along: When you are dealing with issues of alcohol, that is a constant battle for a person for the rest of their lives.”

Dombrowski said he's talked to Cabrera, as well as the commissioner's office and the players' association.
