Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Sharp to begin spring
Cabrera gave up two hits and struck out two over two scoreless innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.
The 25-year-old righty posted a 15.2 percent walk rate over 99.2 innings last season and has fought his control throughout his career, but Cabrera looked sharp in this one and tossed 21 of 31 pitches for strikes against a Houston lineup headlined by Chas McCormick and Yainer Diaz. Cabrera isn't quite a lock to break camp in the Miami rotation, but considering he's out of minor-league options it would likely take a complete meltdown this spring to cost him a spot....

Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Flounders against Pirates
Cabrera did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks over 3.2 innings against the Pirates. He struck out three.
With the Marlins in the thick of the NL wild-card race, manager Skip Schumaker didn't give Cabrera a long leash. The 25-year-old struggled with his control again Friday night, a common theme for his 2023 campaign as he entered the start with an ugly 5.9 BB/9. Cabrera ends the season with a 4.42 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 118:66 K:BB over 99.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Drawing Friday's start
Cabrera will start for the Marlins on Friday in Pittsburgh, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Cabrera was seemingly either going to start Friday or Saturday and the Marlins have decided to hand him the ball in the series opener. Given the state of Miami's pitching staff, they could really use some length out of Cabrera on Friday. Unfortunately, he hasn't gone six innings in a start in the majors since early June....

Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Solid in seventh win
Cabrera (7-7) earned the win Sunday against Milwaukee, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out five.
After struggling in a recent outing against the Brewers on Sept. 12 in which he allowed six walks, Cabrera displayed much better control and was able to secure the win Sunday. Since being recalled Sept. 6, the 25-year-old pitcher has a 1.89 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 22:10 K:BB in 19 innings over four starts. He has allowed two or fewer walks in three of those four outings. Cabrera's last start of the season is currently scheduled to be on the road against Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Yields one run
Cabrera allowed one run on four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in Monday's loss to the Mets. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Cabrera made his first MLB start since July 31 and looked efficient with 51 strikes on 77 pitches. In three appearances since rejoining the Marlins, he's registered a 1.93 ERA and a 17:9 K:BB through 14 frames. He now owns a 4.35 ERA across 91 innings at the MLB level. Cabrera is currently projected for a home matchup with the Brewers this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Set to start Monday
Cabrera is expected to start Monday's game against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The right-hander worked as the bulk pitcher in his first two appearances back with the Marlins, but he's set to start Monday's contest. Cabrera has still had control issues with eight walks in those two outings, but he's allowed just two runs on two hits with 13 strikeouts over 8.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Walks six in bulk relief
Cabrera (6-7) took the loss Tuesday against the Brewers. He allowed two runs on one hit and six walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings.
Cabrera followed up JT Chargois -- who tossed one scoreless frame as an opener -- and dished out six walks for the second time in his last three appearances. Despite his lack of control, Cabrera held the Brewers to just two runs on one hit. Since being called up from Triple-A Jacksonville on Sept. 6, Cabrera has worked exclusively as a bulk reliever, posting a 2.08 ERA and a 13:8 K:BB through 8.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Likely to work in bulk relief again
Cabrera is expected to serve as a bulk reliever behind opening pitcher JT Chargois in Tuesday's game in Milwaukee, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Though he hasn't started since being called up from Triple-A Jacksonville last Wednesday, Cabrera looks to be the fifth member of the Miami rotation after Sandy Alcantara (forearm) was recently placed on the injured list. In his return to the big leagues last week, Cabrera was used behind Chargois in an 11-4 win over the Dodgers, tossing four scoreless frames and striking out eight while picking up the win. Given the strong results Cabrera provided in the bulk-relief role in his last appearance, the Marlins will likely deploy him in that capacity again with the hope he can deliver a repeat performance....

Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Sharp as bulk reliever
Cabrera (6-6) picked up the win in Wednesday's 11-4 victory over the Dodgers, allowing one hit and two walks over four scoreless relief innings. He struck out eight.
While initial reports suggested the right-hander would be joining the rotation, particularly after Sandy Alcantara (forearm) landed on the IL, Cabrera was instead deployed as a bulk reliever and didn't take the mound until after three other Marlins pitchers had worked a combined four frames. The gambit by manager Skip Schumaker paid off, as Cabrera generated 25 called or swinging strikes on only 72 pitches as he dominated the Dodgers and collected his first first big-league win since early June. It's not clear what his usage will be moving forward, but if he stays on turn, the 25-year-old's next outing would come early next week in Milwaukee.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Recalled to rotation
Miami recalled Cabrera from Triple-A Jacksonville ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Dodgers.
The initial plan had been for Cabrera to return as a sixth starter for the Marlins, but he's now entering a five-man mix with Sandy Alcantara getting sent to the 15-day injured list Wednesday because of a flexor strain. Cabrera, 25, was sporting a 2.22 ERA and 30:12 K:BB in 28.1 innings (five starts) since his Aug. 1 demotion to Jacksonville. He's worked to a 4.79 ERA and 93:52 K:BB in 77 innings (17 starts) this season at the MLB level.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Expected to start Wednesday
Cabrera joined the Marlins' taxi squad Tuesday and is expected to be called up from Triple-A Jacksonville to start Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Cabrera is set to join a six-man rotation down the stretch while the Marlins look to claim one of the three National League wild-card spots. The 25-year-old pitched to a 2.22 ERA and 30:12 K:BB in 28.1 innings (five starts) with Jacksonville following his Aug. 1 demotion.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Candidate for call-up Wednesday
Cabrera could be called up from Triple-A Jacksonville to start Wednesday's game against the Dodgers in Miami, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins appear set to break in a new member of the rotation this week, as Miami has already confirmed Jesus Luzardo (Tuesday) and Braxton Garrett (Thursday) as starting pitchers for two of its games against Los Angeles while having yet to name a starter for the middle game of the series. Assuming the Marlins don't opt to treat Wednesday's game as a bullpen day, Cabrera would seemingly be the top candidate to fill the opening. Since being optioned to the minors Aug. 1, Cabrera has shown improved command over his five starts with Jacksonville, accruing a 2.22 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB while allowing just two home runs in 28.1 innings....

Marlins' Edward Cabrera: Making progress with command
Cabrera has looked good in two starts for Triple-A Jacksonville since his demotion, allowing just two earned runs over 12 innings with a 13:3 K:BB, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
Both runs came on solo homers, but the Marlins are more concerned with Cabrera simply getting the ball into the strike zone consistently, trusting that the movement on his plus stuff will take care of the rest. "You watch him, [but] you don't watch the results," manager Skip Schumaker said Saturday before the right-hander's most recent outing, in which he struck out 10 over six scoreless innings against Norfolk. "When you're watching him, he's commanding all of his pitches again, which is what we're looking for. Hopefully he continues to do that. If he continues to do that and knock the door down, he'll come back up." Cabrera is eligible to return to the big-league roster as soon as Wednesday, and with Eury Perez struggling to last five innings since rejoining the Miami rotation, the two young hurlers could switch places for this weekend's road series against the Dodgers....
