2011-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)Edwar Cabrera moved up to Modesto last night and had another great start. Is there anything you can tell us about him and how you think he'll do at higher levels?
(Steve from Boston)
He's a bit of a trick pitcher who throws a plus-plus changeup at any point in the count and then changes speeds with his fastball, kind of pitching backwards. I think he's good, but not nearly as good as the numbers. (Kevin Goldstein)
