The Toronto Blue Jays Melky Cabrera, currently on a rehabilitation assignment in Florida, was accused by a waitress of being a little tight on a tip at a local Chili’s. Cabrera played his first rehab game in Dunedin, Florida, on Friday and apparently treated his teammates to dinner after the game (unless he rang up a $70 bill himself). Unwritten rules dictate the veterans on rehab in the minors always spread some of that major league salary love to the lower level kids trying to make ends meet. However, the love wasn’t necessarily extended to the waitress. According to Facebook updates and Tweets from a Melissa Dickson (@whitesoxdiaries), the near 2012 NL batting champion and 2012 MLB All-Star Game MVP was a little tight on the tip.
