BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 After a May return from the fractured elbow that cost him most of 2012, Cesar Cabral took time to get reacquainted with the strike zone, but settled in and made a case for situational work by fanning 40 percent of the lefties he faced across four levels.
2013 Lefty reliever Cesar Cabral struck out 12 and walked two in 11 1/3 innings last March, making a strong case for inclusion on the Opening Day roster, but he suffered a stress fracture in his elbow late in the exhibition schedule, which ended his season and allowed Rapada to make the team instead.
2011 Cabral looked great at relief in Single-A, punching out five times as many hitters as he walked with his above-average heater and mix of secondary stuff. His ERA ballooned with a promotion to High-A, but he still missed plenty of bats and maintained his excellent control. The Rays scooped him up in the Rule 5 draft, and the lefty may work as a LOOGY out of the pen.
