Yankees designated LHP Cesar Cabral for assignment.

Not an unsurprising move after completely losing his control and hitting three batters in the eighth inning of Friday's loss to the Rays. While it's possible he'll generate some interest on waivers, the most likely scenario is that he returns to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where he'll attempt to get back on track.
Apr 19 - 12:07 AM

Cesar Cabral was ejected from Friday's game against the Rays after hitting three hitters in the eighth inning.

It was an epic meltdown for Cabral, who seemed to legitimately have no idea where the ball was going. With David Robertson's impending return from the disabled list on Tuesday, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the southpaw return to Triple-A for more seasoning.
Apr 18 - 11:51 PM

Yankees recalled LHP Cesar Cabral from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He'll take the place of the injured David Robertson (groin) on the active roster and will give Joe Girardi a third left-hander out of the bullpen. Cabral appeared in eight games with the big club last season and had a 5.40 ERA with 43 strikeouts over 36 2/3 innings in the minors.
Apr 8 - 9:57 AM

Yankees optioned LHP Cesar Cabral from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The 25-year-old southpaw was outstanding in Grapefruit League play, hurling 9 1/3 scoreless innings while compiling a 10/6 K/BB ratio. Even so, he lost out to Vidal Nuno for the final spot in the Opening Day bullpen somehow. He'll get another shot with the Yankees at some point early in the 2014 season no doubt.
Mar 29 - 8:38 AM

Yankees purchased the contract of LHP Cesar Cabral from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Cabral holds a 5.40 ERA with 43 strikeouts over 36 2/3 innings across multiple minor league stops in his first year back from elbow surgery. He'll give the Yanks another southpaw in the bullpen.

Yankees sent LHP Cesar Cabral outright to Double-A Trenton.

The move was made to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Chris Bootcheck. The 24-year-old southpaw missed the entire 2012 season with a stress fracture in his elbow, and has struggled this season, posting a 6.75 ERA and 2.08 WHIP through his first 12 innings in the minors.

Cesar Cabral (elbow) threw a scoreless inning Wednesday in an extended spring training game.

Cabral worked around a single by Delmon Young to complete the frame. The 24-year-old left-hander missed all of 2012 with a stress fracture in his elbow. It's not clear when he'll begin an official minor league rehab assignment.
Wed, Apr 17, 2013 11:52:00 AM

Yankees placed LHP Cesar Cabral on the 60-day disabled list with an elbow injury.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly-claimed Dan Otero. The 24-year-old left-hander missed all of 2012 with a stress fracture in his elbow and isn't expected to pitch in games until May.

Cesar Cabral (elbow) isn't expected to be ready to pitch in games until May.

Cabral missed all of 2012 with a stress fracture in his left elbow, and he obviously still isn't 100 percent. The positive with the injury is that the Yankees will be able to bring the Rule 5 pick along slowly with minor league rehab games.
Fri, Feb 15, 2013 12:41:00 PM

According to Chad Jennings of the Journal News, Cesar Cabral (elbow) is not expected to be 100 percent healthy by the start of the 2013 regular season.

Cabral was a Rule 5 Draft selection before the 2012 season, but he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left elbow during spring training and missed the entire summer. He'll be a question mark again in 2013.
Sat, Feb 2, 2013 10:32:00 PM

Yankees transferred LHP Cesar Cabral from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Matt Antonelli on the 40-man roster. Cabral, a Rule 5 pick, was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left elbow during spring training.
Thu, May 17, 2012 04:05:00 PM

Rule 5 pick Cesar Cabral was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left elbow.

He's a candidate for the 60-day disabled list. Cabral had a solid spring as the Yankees' left-handed specialist, posting a 1.74 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings. Clay Rapada is now set to begin the year on the Opening Day roster.

Rule 5 pick Cesar Cabral Cesar Cabral will undergo X-rays and an MRI on his left (pitching) elbow.

Cabral's arm is in a sling, so he doesn't appear to be dealing with just garden-variety soreness. Fighting for a spot as a lefty specialist in the Bombers bullpen, Cabral has had a solid spring, posting a 1.74 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings. It looks like it could all be for naught, however.
Fri, Mar 30, 2012 10:48:00 PM

Rule 5 pick Cesar Cabral got all six of his outs via the K in relief against the Rays on Wednesday.

Cabral allowed two hits and intentionally walked a batter. He also threw a wild pitch and committed a balk, but he didn't allow a run. The Yankees may very well keep the former Red Sox farmhand as the second lefty in their pen.
