Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 70 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 55

Signed for $100,000 out of the Dominican Republic in 2015, Cabrera has become the best prospect from the Marlins' crop of international talent that summer. He's still more thrower than pitcher but made strides during his full-season debut in 2018 after missing part of the previous season with a forearm strain.

Cabrera boasts a lively 93-97 mph fastball that has reached triple digits, though he has difficulty commanding it at higher velocities. He throws a hard breaking ball in the 82-85 mph range that's more slider than curveball but lacks consistency at times. He also shows flashes of a solid changeup though it's often too firm to be truly effective.

Miami has handled Cabrera with care because he has as much upside as any pitcher in the system, and his 100 1/3 innings last year were a career high. To reach his ceiling, he'll have to do a better job of locating his pitches and improve his secondary offerings. If he can't, he still could be a late-inning reliever.
