2003 Ooo. Them’s good eatin’. Jose Cabrera’s World Whiplash Tour ’02 was painful to watch, as he was taken deep by pretty much anyone with a bat. His velocity and movement were both absent, and hitters broke into spontaneous knife fights for the opportunity to get up the plate and leave Bud Selig’s signature indented on their bats. He’ll be hard-pressed to find a lot of opportunities after that performance, instead calling around for an NRI.
2002 Cabrera is an example of the easy availability of good relief help at less than the Ed Wade rate. He was snagged from the Astros on waivers in April. For a couple of months, Cabrera was the best right-handed reliever in the pen. He’ll make a mistake against lefties more often than you’d like; other than that, he’s a useful middle reliever.
2001 Of all the problems the Astros had in their bullpen last year, Jose Cabrera’s complete inability to build on his 1999 performance was the knockout blow. There was nothing wrong with Cabrera’s arm; he simply couldn’t finish off hitters. All eyes this spring will be on the status of Billy Wagner, but which Cabrera shows up this year could have just as much impact on the Astros’ hopes.
2000 There’s an awful lot to like here. Cabrera was acquired from the Indians in 1997 for Alvin Morman, but he lost almost all of 1998 to injury just as he made a place for himself in the Astros’ bullpen. He came back as good as ever, and his dominance down the stretch did wonders for a bullpen that was hurting after Scott Elarton moved into the rotation. Cabrera is a very good bet to pitch well. There’s something about him that whispers “Mariano Rivera” to me, but maybe that’s just a reminder to refill my prescription.
1998 Brought over from Cleveland for Alvin Morman, the Astros are generally pleased with him. He has a good fastball, although it lacks movement. He’s expected to be in Triple-A in ’98.
