"I don't have any plans," said Cabrera, who went 1-for-4 and received a standing ovation before his first at-bat in the Royals' 6-3 loss. "We are in the race for the postseason and all my focus is on that. And my family is here."
Cabrera did recall how tough it was almost two weeks ago to be traded, though he was happy to be going to the playoff-contending Royals.
"It was kind of difficult because I played here 2 1/2 years," he said, "but that's part of the business. I have a lot of good memories. I know the guys. It's kind of sentimental. It's tough to be in that situation."
Cabrera did praise White Sox fans who made him one of their favorites.
"I'm just thankful for their support," Cabrera said. "I came here to play hard and I think that is why they supported me so much."
