Scouting Team USA: OutfieldersUSA Baseball
Position player notes from a recent five-game look at the USA CNT, starting with the Outfielders.
Replaced an injured Antoine Duplantis on the roster and ignited a sleepy CNT offense with a home run and RBI single in his first game. Cabrera is a natural hitter with gifted hands and easy power. Great balance with a leg lift load. Stayed back well. Has a great positive move toward the baseball, allows the ball to travel to him and connects his back hip, elbow and hands extremely well. Let’s his hands work independently from his body and gets great extension through the ball. Ranked No. 1 in D1Baseball’s top freshman hitter analytics.
Look for Cabrera to be a key bat in the CNT lineup this summer and next. He should also anchor the LSU lineup over the next couple seasons as he develops and solidifies his status as a potential first-rounder in 2020.
