Astros reassigned LHP Edwar Cabrera to minor league camp.

Cabrera signed a minor league deal with the Astros this winter after posting a 3.91 ERA across 78 1/3 innings in the Rangers' minor league system last season. The 28-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 as a member of the Rockies.

Astros signed LHP Edwar Cabrera to a minor league contract.

Cabrera, 28, posted a 3.91 ERA across 78 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A with the Rangers last season. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 and is simply a depth addition.
Jan 22 - 2:30 PM

Rangers sent LHP Edwar Cabrera outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Cabrera did not make an appearance in 2013 due to lingering shoulder issues. The 26-year-old left-hander will try to get his career back on track next season.

Rangers activated LHP Edwar Cabrera from the 60-day disabled list.

The 25-year-old left-hander didn't pitch in 2013 due to a shoulder injury, but he was considered one of Colorado's top pitching prospects in the recent past. The Rockies designated Cabrera off the 40-man roster in October and Texas claimed him off waivers in hopes of salvaging value from Cabrera's lively left arm.

Rangers claimed LHP Edwar Cabrera off waivers from the Rockies; transferred him to the 60-day disabled list.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reported earlier in the day that Cabrera was going to be removed from the 40-man roster. The 25-year-old left-hander didn't pitch in 2013 due to a shoulder injury, but he was considered one of Colorado's top pitching prospects not too long ago.

Edwar Cabrera (left shoulder impingement) threw a 45-pitch bullpen session last month.

We've read nothing further regarding Cabrera, which probably means he isn't close to a rehab assignment. The 25-year-old lefty was placed on the 60-day disabled list in February. He's eligible for activation, but not healthy enough to pitch. Cabrera ranked as Colorado's ninth best prospect by MLB.com this offseason.

Rockies placed LHP Edwar Cabrera on the 60-day disabled list with a left shoulder impingement.

The move cleared a 40-man roster spot for new infielder Reid Brignac. Cabrera can be activated in late May.

Rockies optioned LHP Edwar Cabrera from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He was sent down in order to make room for Todd Helton's return from the disabled list. Cabrera allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over 3 1/3 innings Tuesday in a spot start against the Diamondbacks.

Rockies recalled LHP Edwar Cabrera from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He'll get the ball Tuesday in place of Drew Pomeranz (arm), but Pomeranz is expected to make his next start, so Cabrera could be sent right back down. Given how badly he struggled in his major league debut, he should be avoided against the D'Backs.
Tue, Jul 24, 2012 07:05:00 PM

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are expected to call up left-hander Edwar Cabrera.

He'll presumably start Tuesday in place of Drew Pomeranz, who was scratched due to biceps soreness. Cabrera was knocked around for seven runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks against the Nationals in his major league debut on June 27. He's not worth a look outside of deeper NL-only leagues.

Rockies optioned LHP Edwar Cabrera to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Well, that was fast. Cabrera was rocked in his major league debut on Wednesday night, allowing seven runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks in a loss to the Nationals. The Rockies have called up Tyler Chatwood to replace him on the active roster.
Fri, Jun 29, 2012 04:50:00 PM

Making his major-league debut, Edwar Cabrera allowed seven runs (five earned) on five hits and three walks in just 2 1/3 innings of Colorado's 11-5 loss to the Nationals.

So much for that. Cabrera notched just one strikeout while serving up three home runs. A 24-year-old with just 98 career innings above Single-A, Cabrera is off the fantasy radar in all formats.

Rockies recalled LHP Edwar Cabrera from Double-A Tulsa.

Cabrera will make his major league debut on Wednesday night against the Nationals. He's struggled this year at the Double-A level and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Wed, Jun 27, 2012 06:44:00 PM

The Rockies are expected to call up Edwar Cabrera for a start Wednesday against the Nationals.

Cabrera has surrendered 15 home runs in 98 innings this season for Double-A Tulsa, which doesn't bode well for his odds of success at Coors Field. The 24-year-old left-hander should be ignored in all fantasy leagues.
