MLB set to announce a "one time" exception to the rules, Cabrera is ruled ineligible for the batting title after MLB and the union reached an agreement.  Cabrera had asked to be removed from consideration for the award.

Under the deal, the rule saying that a batter falling one PA shy of the batting title gets an 0-fer for that PA will not apply to suspended players.
