The Detroit Tigers have a handful of veteran players who could reach major career milestones in 2018.

The Detroit Tigers have gotten considerably younger this offseason in an effort to restock their farm system. However, they still have a handful of veterans who will play a big role on this team.

Chief among them is Tigers legend Miguel Cabrera, who has all but secured himself a spot in Cooperstown once his career is over.

At just 34 years old, Miggy is approaching some impressive career milestones, some of which could even happen this season.

Miggy is not the only player approaching milestones however, as 39-year-old veteran Victor Martinez is closing in on a milestone achieved by very few at his position. Likewise, Jordan Zimmermann and Shane Greene each have an opportunity to reach milestones and move up in Detroit’s record books.

While 2018 will be dominated by young players like Nicholas Castellanos, Michael Fulmer and Jeimer Candelario, the veterans will have a chance to make their mark in the record books.

Here are five milestones that could be achieved in 2018, starting with a big one for Miguel Cabrera:
