Cabral signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday, Baseball America reports. The southpaw, who will be 28 in February, has not had much of an opportunity to show off his stuff in the big leagues, as he's pitched just two innings in the majors over the past three seasons, including none last season. He allowed nine earned runs over just 8.1 innings at Triple-A Norfolk last season before the Orioles released him. If he even makes the team, he isn't likely to serve as anything more than organizational depth next season.
Cabral was released by the Orioles on Tuesday, according to Baseball America. The 27-year-old lefty had more walks than strikeouts and a 9.72 ERA in 8.1 innings at Triple-A, so the Orioles had seen enough and cut him loose.
Cabral will begin the season in the minor leagues, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports. The lefty reliever was in camp as a non-roster invitee after signing a minor league deal with Baltimore in November. Cabral will likely begin the year in Triple-A, where he spent the bulk of the 2015 season.
Cabral signed a minor league contract with the Orioles on Tuesday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. The lefty reliever's contract also comes with an invite to spring training. He debuted in the big leagues in 2013, but has pitched just 5.2 innings in the majors, posting a 6.35 ERA.
Cabral has filed for free agency, Rich Dubroff of Comcast Sports Net reports. Cabral made just two appearances with the Orioles this season, walking one batter in just an inning of work. While his numbers at Triple-A Norfolk (4.95 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 43:19 K:BB in 40 innings) were certainly down, he will likely get a chance to impress with another team during spring training.
