Antonio Cabello
19-Year-Old OutfielderOF
2019 Fantasy Outlook
A catcher-turned-center fielder, Cabello netted $1.35 million last winter on the strength of a well-rounded toolset that allowed him to make that extremely rare position change. He quickly showed he was too advanced for the Dominican Summer League and was sent stateside to the Gulf Coast League, where he was the league’s best hitter (174 wRC+) by a wide margin, despite being the the sixth-youngest hitter on the circuit. A plus runner, Cabello is still learning how to use his speed on the bases and in the field. He has a chance to be a plus hitter with plus power, but will need to start using the whole field (57.1 Pull%) as he climbs the ladder. His season was cut short in mid-August when he dislocated his non-throwing shoulder. The injury required surgery but he will be ready for spring training. Cabello has a lower realistic floor than some of the other top teenagers who broke out in rookie ball last season, but his ceiling is up there with any of them. Read Past Outlooks

Awaits short-season assignment

April 4, 2019
Cabello is being held back in extended spring training until he can be sent to a short-season league in June, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cabello had an incredible pro debut last year, splitting time between the Dominican Summer League and Gulf Coast League, but it was unrealistic to expect the Yankees to bump him up to Low-A to start this season. He will either be sent to the Appalachian League or the New York-Penn League in mid-June.
