O’s Cabrera a Work In Progress
How do you guys feel about Daniel Cabrera? I love his Ks and his potential, but I usually strive for consistency.
There’s no denying Cabrera has electric stuff, but consistent he is not! The walks are still a major problem, and in Cabrera’s four big league seasons, his walk rate hasn’t gotten much better. This year, Daniel’s actually posting the best BB/9 rate of his career. That’s not saying much considering it’s 4.7! As long as this trend continues, I’d stay away from Cabrera for fantasy purposes. He remains nothing more than a speculative late round draft pick. He may eventually put it all together, but let another owner take that gamble. Get your strikeouts from someone else. For the time being, banking on Cabrera isn’t worth it.
