2021 Fantasy Outlook
Cabrera dealt with right shoulder discomfort and a back issue at the alternate site in late July and didn't resume mound work until September. He likely would have made his MLB debut last summer if he'd been perfectly healthy. As with any young hurler who can touch triple digits, Cabrera has always been a high-risk prospect from a health standpoint. Add in the fact that he recently dealt with an arm/shoulder issue, and the risk of him missing significant time in the near future is up there with any top-100 pitching prospect. When fully healthy, Cabrera can match the high ceilings of the rest of Miami's young high-voltage starters. He pairs a plus breaking ball with his plus-plus fastball, while his third-pitch changeup is still a bit of a work in progress. If he develops average command, Cabrera could be a No. 2 starter. He will likely head to Triple-A and could debut in the first half if he stays healthy. Read Past Outlooks

October 1, 2021
Cabrera (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday.
ANALYSIS
Cabrera was lifted after three innings Thursday due to a blister on his right middle finger, so he had already pitched for the final time this season regardless of whether or not he was put on the IL. The 23-year-old ended 2021 with a 5.81 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 28:19 K:BB across 26.1 innings (seven starts). He should be back to full health early in the offseason.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
A projectable 6-foot-4, 175-pound righty, Cabrera had a breakout year across stops at High-A and Double-A, and now projects as at least a mid-rotation starter. He was unsurprisingly dominant (24.2 K-BB%) in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League, then kept rolling (19.2 K-BB%) in eight starts in the Southern League. His sinking mid-90s fastball can touch triple digits and projects as a 70-grade pitch. The big development last year was that his slider and changeup now project as plus offerings, giving him the arsenal of a No. 2 starter. He has kept his walk rate under 10% at each stop in full-season ball, and should continue to improve as a strike thrower in his age-22 season. He missed a couple weeks with a back injury and almost a month with an infection. Building up to 120-plus innings will be a big goal for 2020. Nonetheless, he is on a clear starter's track, and should be a rotation fixture in 2021.
