RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Mauricio Cabrera.
Control issues and a forearm injury plagued Cabrera's 2014 season, as he issued 21 free passes in 33 innings between the Gulf Coast League and High-A Lynchburg and struggled to a 7.23 ERA in 16 appearances out of the Lynchburg bullpen after his return from the forearm issue. The 21-year-old right-hander got off to a strong start upon his promotion, with a 2.61 ERA and .189 BAA in his first three starts in the Carolina League, and he did have success against lefties (.170 BAA, 16 strikeouts in 12.2 innings at Lynchburg), lending hope to a suddenly pitching-depraved Braves system that the results will be much better with a return to full health. Cabrera figures to return to a starting role to begin 2015, but until his secondary offerings start catching up to his mid-90s fastball, there will still be those that think he eventually ends up in the bullpen full-time.
Cabrera gave up just three home runs in 131.1 innings with Low-A Rome in 2013, but he walked batters at a 4.9 BB/9 clip and uncorked 16 wild pitches. Just 20 years old, he's a ways away from making an impact in the majors, but the right-hander throws hard and could at least catch the eye of those in dynasty leagues in 2014.
