I'm in a 14 team league. He's been pitching pretty good of late. My question is: Isn't Cabrera one of Baltimore's top prospects?
He's only 23

He's among them, and the fact is the O's have a nice stockpile of pretty good prospects. Cabrera's stock dropped some last season as he lost the strike zone frequently and was very erratic. But as it turns out, his mom was ill back in the D.R. and this had to be a contributing factor.

I'm impressed by his poise, and if adds another pitch down the road, his mid-90's fastball will become more of a strikeout pitch. Because the K's are so minimal this year, I don't think he's worth much for '04 in a typical 5x5 league. But he's definitely worth a moderate investment in an auction keeper league, as he's got a high ceiling.

Cabrera didnt have a good minor league career, but he has added a pitch in his arsenal thats why the O's were confident enough to call him up for a big role.

Cabrera tops out at 94 with his fastball and throws a nasty curveball. He mixes that with an average changeup and he's locating his pitches better as the season goes on. So basically here's a guy with two plus pitches and an average one. A 3 pitch guy who has a lot of upside.

I'd pick him up now.
