1. RHP Edward Cabrera – Miami Marlins No. 4 Prospect
Arguably the next top prospect that we could see make his MLB debut is right-handed pitcher Edward Cabrera.
Originally signed by the Marlins out of the Dominican Republic back in 2015, Cabrera has always been a prospect that fans have looked forward to. However, hype has begun to build recently as a potential debut from the Marlins No. 4 prospect and No. 52 prospect in baseball is appearing to loom closer and closer.
After struggling during the early part of his career, Cabrera enjoyed a breakout 2019 season where he posted a 2.23 ERA in 19 starts across two different minor league levels. While Cabrera would’ve potentially made his big league debut last season if he didn’t suffer a minor injury, 2021 seems like a real possibility.
After making three starts so far this season posting a 0.87 ERA across 10.1 innings pitched, the 23-year old right-hander appears to be nearing that potential much-anticipated debut. While a few starts in Triple-A make sense before he recieves the call, Cabrera’s electric stuff will allow him to succeed at any level.
While Cabrera’s fastball consistently flirts with triple-digits, the 23-year old also displays a plus-slider with a strong changeup. It’s clear to see why fans are so excited about Cabrera, and why he will be a major part of the Marlins rotation going forward.
While there is a chance we still might not see these prospects until the 2022 season, 2021 is still a possibility. If these three do receive the call as well, expect Marlins’ games come August and September to be must-see when these top prospects are on the field.
