BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2020-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Edward Cabrera have enough of a third pitch to remain a starter?
(Yanni from Playing with my mustache)
Yes. Cabrera's change-up has taken a big step forward and flashes above-average with improved velocity separation. The main question is whether his command will continue to trend in the right direction for him to profile in the rotation. At the moment, it is still borderline. Both his curveball and change-up could also use some refinement (as with nearly every pitcher). (Jesse Roche)
2020-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)What type of contribution do you expect Edward Cabrera to make in MIA this season?
(Craig from Chicago)
He only has a handful of starts above A-ball and there is even more uncertainty around the minor league season than the major league one. I suspect at worst there will be some sort of taxi squad for 40-man guys (which Cabrera is one), but even in a normal season I don't know that you'd see him before Late Summer. In this surely-truncated one, you probably won't see him at all. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2020-03-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig! Thanks for the chat. If you had to pick a pitcher and a hitter currently out of the fantasy 101 that could leap into the top 50 by mid season (or 2021 If you prefer), who would it be?
(Dynasty from Dynasty land )
I like Jose Garcia and Liover Peguero as options for hitters (Monte Harrison too, but he'd get too many ABs if he does well enough to jump that high), and Edward Cabrera and Nick Lodolo as arms. Brailyn Marquez has that talent, too. (Craig Goldstein)
2020-03-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)What is your expectation for Edward Cabrera and Nick Neidert when they come up this year? Is one of them more ready to pitch effectively this year than the other?
(Craig from Chicago)
Cabrera is the better pitching prospect by a fair amount, and I think he could be an above-average starter pretty quickly. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2020-02-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey thanks for the chat. How would you rank pitchers S Howard, Lodolo, J Gray, E Cabrera, and B Marquez??
(sykklone from IA)
Spencer Howard, gap, Josiah Gray, gap, Nick Lodolo / Edward Cabrera / Brailyn Marquez (Jesse Roche)
2019-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)There are going to be guys in the Top 101 with pretty similar AA stats, at basically the same age, as Cristian Javier. I know nothing about scouting. What keeps him from joining their ranks?
(Jim from Georgetown)
So I think there's two ways to approach this. On the one hand the line between backend 101 arm and Javier isn't that big in some ways. A little less size, a little less fastball, you have to squint a little harder to find average command. But that stuff adds up, and projecting all of those bumps (and yeah, he's not getting any taller) takes us past the bounds of our 75th percentile OFP. The K numbers are nice but they imply better stuff than is there at present, and an above-average curve will always rack up Ks in Double-A. It's nice to have in the majors too, but the stuff around that limits the upside some for Javier compared to oh say Tarik Skubal or Edward Cabrera. (Houston Astros Top 10 Chat)
2019-07-31 12:00:00 (link to chat)Any reports on Edward Cabrera? Seems like the control has taken a step forward this year. What kind of upside does he have?
(Dillon from PA)
Keanan Lamb saw him for us two weeks ago. Sits int he mid 90s, bumped 98. Good breaker in the low/mid 80s and the change was firm. Definitely think he has taken a step forward this year. He's someone I really like. I think he could be better than a midrotation arm if it clicks. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-31 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Adrian Morejon still has a shot at TOR kind of guy? His stuff doesn't seem to be playing up yet. On another note, any underrated pitching prospects you can think of?
(Jake from SD)
Yes, I think he has that kind of stuff and has showed it throughout this year. Bigger question to me is whether he will hold it deep into games/deep into seasons. I talked about Edward Cabrera earlier and I don't think he gets enough national shine. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Craig: Love your chats. I'm in a kpr. pts. league and decided to become a seller at the trade deadline (7/15). I acquired Mauricio Dubon along with my trade partner's #1 in next year's draft. It's a 12 keeper league, so I traded Didi to clear out some of my MI types. I still have K. Marte, K. Hiura, C. Seager and C. Kieboom on my prospect bench. I have N. Pearson on my prospect bench. With Montas's suspension, I'm probably only keeping two SPs. Is there any young starter that's flying under the radar right now that you'd recommend for deep leagues? Thanks!
(balticwolf from Bethesda MD)
I don't think Dubon should be cracking a top 12 keepers especially with those guys ahead of him. As far as starters, I'm not sure if you mean prospects or MLB starters but assuming the former, I am coming around on Edward Cabrera for Miami. Sean Hjelle is a lower profile name that is closer to the majors. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Braxton Garrett, Josiah Gray, or Edward Cabrera?
(Buff from Colorado)
I'll take Cabrera. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-06-12 20:00:00 (link to chat)Sixto and Zac Gallen get most of the publicity, but am I crazy to think Edward Cabrera is the Marlins best pitching prospect?
(Carl from Florida)
Cabrera definitely looks like a promising project for a Yankees-influenced Marlins development staff. It's still quite early, though, and he's really not in the same prospect universe as Sixto at the moment. (Zach Crizer)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Zac Gallen or Anthony Kay?? Both?? Neither?? Is it close??
(sykklone from IA)
Gallen, for me. He experienced a bit of a velocity uptick last year, and it appears the Marlins have a good pitching development team in place (see: Edward Cabrera, etc.). In the end, I'm more confident that Gallen can stick in the rotation long-term, while Kay might need to move to the bullpen. (J.P. Breen)
2019-05-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Edward Cabrera has been flat out dominant this year. Are we witnessing a breakout?
(Paolo from South Beach)
Definitely possible. He's been 95-97 with a plus slider. That's a good basis for a breakout season. (Craig Goldstein)
