You probably haven't paid much attention to the Braves this season, but earlier in the week they provided a new reason to tune in to their games now and again: right-hander Mauricio Cabrera.

Cabrera has since appeared in three games, completing two innings on 21 pitches. It's a small sample, but you can learn more about pitchers than hitters from a series' worth of games -- especially relievers, who often make multiple appearances. For instance, you can get a good look at their mechanics, and a feel for their pitch quality. You can also figure out how hard they throw. In Cabrera's case, he's already validated one long-standing belief about his game: that he possesses elite arm strength.

Cabrera has thrown 17 fastballs thus far, and each and every one of them has clocked in at or above 100 mph, according to PITCHf/x data. Brooks Baseball lists his average fastball velocity as 102 mph. What's more is Cabrera has touched 103 mph on a few occasions, just as he did in the clip above. Aroldis Chapman is the only pitcher to do it more times, per MLB Advanced Media's Daren Willman -- and, again, Cabrera is less than a week into his big-league career:

You might wonder where Cabrera has been hiding out these past few years for him to not be a bigger deal. The truth is, he used to be considered a promising young starter. Injuries and stagnation caused him to be shifted to the bullpen prior to the 2015 season, and the results haven't been as spectacular as you'd think -- in 51 Double-A innings, he's posted a 4.06 ERA. Cabrera did pitch better this season, however, and the Braves felt good enough about his current state to skip him past Triple-A.

Where does Cabrera go from here? His path hinges on his ability to mimic effectively wild relievers like Carlos Marmol and A.J. Ramos -- pitchers who walked plenty, but atoned for their poor control by limiting balls in play and suppressing quality of contact. If Cabrera can master the same formula, then he could find work in a high-leverage role. Otherwise? Cabrera's likely to join the class of up-and-down types, like Juan Dominguez and Juan Jaime, who couldn't make the most of their million-dollar arms. As the old song goes, bless your body, bless your soul, pray for peace and Cabrera's fastball control.

For Cabrera's sake, yes -- but also for our own entertainment.
