Cabrera (biceps) made his most recent rehab appearance at Double-A Pensacola on Saturday, covering 4.1 innings while striking out seven and giving up one run on two hits and one walk. Cabrera was making the third appearance of his rehab assignment and his first with Pensacola after having made his prior two starts at Low-A Jupiter. Considering Cabrera built up his pitch count to 67 on Saturday, he could be ready to slot back into the Triple-A Jacksonville rotation during the upcoming week.
Cabrera (biceps) will make another rehab start for Low-A Jupiter on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Having impressed Sunday in his first rehab appearance, Cabrera appears to be nearing his return to Triple-A Jacksonville. The righty is one of the Marlins' most prized pitching prospects, so they'll surely exercise caution in timing his recovery from biceps inflammation in his throwing arm.
Cabrera (biceps) threw 35 pitches over two innings in an extended spring training game Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. After he faced hitters in live batting practice last week, Cabrera was expected to repeat the activity this week, but the Marlins opted to turn him loose in a controlled game setting instead. Assuming Cabrera's right biceps feels fine coming out of Tuesday's outing, the Marlins could begin to etch out a minor-league rehab assignment for the right-hander. Once he's built up his pitch count for starting duty, Cabrera will likely be included in the Triple-A Jacksonville rotation.
Cabrera (biceps) is scheduled to throw a second live batting practice session later this week, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Cabrera experienced no setbacks with his left arm after throwing 20 pitches against live hitters Saturday, so he'll repeat the activity again before potentially beginning a minor-league rehab assignment. The Marlins will likely have the 23-year-old build up his pitch count over at least a couple outings at the lower levels of the minors before he eventually settles into the rotation at Triple-A Jacksonville.
Cabrera (biceps) has been throwing from 105 feet without issue, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Cabrera continues to increase his throwing distance since being shut down in mid-February. There remains no clear timetable for his return to game action.
