Genesis Cabrera
24-Year-Old PitcherRP
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Cabrera has been a starter throughout most of his minor-league career but pitched primarily out of the bullpen in his rookie season with St. Louis. That was not all by plan; the southpaw received a pair of first-half starts but fared poorly in both. Cabrera may be best suited to a relief role in the long run, anyway, as he possesses a big arm but struggles with his command, posting an 11.1 BB% last season that was in line with his minor-league numbers. He throws a four-seam fastball that clocks in at 96-97 mph and a changeup with which he limited batters to a .243 BAA last season. His third pitch -- a curveball -- was much less effective (.444 BAA) and has graded below average. While Cabrera has yet to translate his ability to throw heat into big strikeout numbers, he's only 23 and is still refining his craft. He's too raw to expect big things from in 2020 but could be a name to watch down the line. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a contract with the Rays in November of 2013. Traded to the Cardinals in July of 2018.
Records first save
PSt. Louis Cardinals
September 20, 2020
Cabrera recorded a five-out save, striking out three in the process during the Cardinals' 5-4 win over the Pirates on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
The 24-year-old has long been regarded as a top-15 prospect for the Cardinals and has the pedigree of a strikeout machine. He has thrown 18.2 innings in 2020, logging a 2.89 ERA with 28 strikeouts.
