Cesar Cabral designated for assignment by Yankees after rough night on the mound

Yankees left-hander Cesar Cabral had an eventful Friday night. And not in a good way. Cabral faced six batters in the bottom of the eighth inning against the Rays last night and failed to retire any of them. After replacing Adam Warren, he gave up a single to Ben Zobrist before throwing a wild pitch and giving up an RBI single to Brandon Guyer. He then Evan Longoria and James Loney...

Cesar Cabral Designated After Last Night’s Debacle

The Yankees looked like they were on the way to another win early on. Hiroki Kuroda pitched well, but once turned over to the bullpen things got ugly. Especially for left handed reliever Cesar Cabral. Cabral could not find the strike zone or record an out to save his life. He ended up hitting 3 batters and was ejected from the game just as manager Joe Girardi was about to pull him...

One week after the great humilation, the questions are taking form

Six nights ago in Boston, the Yankees had clawed back from a four-run deficit to tie the game in the seventh. Joe lifted Hiroki Kuroda with a man first. Cesar Cabral hit big Papi. And then we brought in Preston Claiborne, thinking, "Thank God we don't have to use Joba!"Thus ended the New York Yankees, as we once knew them. Within five minutes, Boston was dancing...

Why Not Take Both Clay Rapada and Cesar Cabral?

Earlier in the week Mike Silva wrote a piece about whether the Yankees should take Clay Rapada or Cesar  Cabral. His points are valid and I agree that Cesar Cabral should be kept on the team. I am not a big fan of having two lefties in the bullpen just for the sake of having two lefties, but I do like the fact of having two effective lefties in a bullpen, especially if it helps...

Why Taking Cabral Makes the Most Sense

The Yankees roster has pretty much been set since the start of spring. They have 13 positional players and 11 pitchers locked. The final probably comes down to the Yankees taking one of the two situational lefties: Clay Rapada or Cesar Cabral. Originally I thought it would be a far easier choice, as Rapada only has a little over a year of service time and wouldn’t be able to reject...

Keep on Eye on Cesar Cabral for 25th Spot

The Yankees 25-man roster is virtually set after just one spring training game. Assuming everyone stays healthy, there are 11 “locks” on the pitching staff and 13 “locks” on the positional side. That leaves one roster spot open, will it be a twelfth pitcher, DH-type or additional middle-infield depth? One name to keep an eye out for is Cesar Cabral. Selected in the December...

Red Sox Trade for Marco Duarte, Draft Gerardo Olivares, Lose Cesar Cabral in Rule 5 Draft

DALLAS –– The Red Sox have made a move, just not on the scale that many expected. After selecting third baseman Marwin Gonzalez from Miami in the Rule 5 draft on Wednesday, Boston shipped him to Houston for right-hander Marco Duarte –– who, along with cash, the Astros tabbed from the Rockies’ Triple-A affiliate in the draft. The 25-year-old has thrived the Mexican League...

Royals pick reliever Cesar Cabral in Rule 5 Draft before trading him to Yankees

The Royals pulled off a bit of misdirection Thursday in the Rule 5 Draft at the Winter Meetings by selecting a lefty reliever - an identified area of need - and immediately flipping him to the New York Yankees for $100,000.
