One morning this week, Cabrera and pitching coach Rick Kranitz reviewed videos of a 2005 stretch when Cabrera pitched well. They decided Cabrera was best when using a more erect delivery that allowed him to use his 6-foot-9 frame to his advantage. "You saw (Cabrera) today," Orioles manager Dave Trembley said. "He never slouched, he never hunched over. He was tall all the time on the mound, and his tempo was very good. He got the ball and threw it. There was not a lot of time between pitches and he was good out of the stretch." The Orioles might be on to something here. If Cabrera can harness his stuff and lower his walks, he could emerge as an elite Fantasy starter. Of course, we've said that for years now. Target him late in Fantasy.
I know it's still a big if, but if he can get control he could be in for decent year with solid Ks. Wins might be lacking though.
