Hear me out on this one as I know some of you might be fuming. Edward Cabrera might be the best arm in the minors right now, but with the number of young arms in the system and those already on the MLB roster, where does he fit?
Cabrera figures to start at Triple-A Wichita this season and reach the Majors at some point after the All-Star Break. From there, it’s a crapshoot if he can remain on the roster. Miami has 12 legitimate young pitchers who can start for this team between now and the start of 2021.
With great pitching comes the chance to turn an arm around for good hitting. Miami is not going to part with Sixto Sanchez. The belief is Nick Neidert can win a spot in the rotation in camp. Cabrera made vast improvements in Double-A last season and could be fast-tracked to the parent club with a deal in place by July.
