Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Recalled from alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was recalled from the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield on Wednesday and is expected to join the team for an afternoon workout, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Having already endured his own bout with coronavirus this summer, Cabrera will now help shore up a roster that's been significantly depleted for the time being due to the COVID infections of multiple players. The southpaw has been been sharp during bullpen sessions and batting practice in Springfield, and he should be capable of filling a multi-inning role out of the bullpen if necessary.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Solid BP despite hard contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera allowed a double and home run during Wednesday's live batting practice at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield but was otherwise effective, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw yielded the two-bagger to John Nogowski and the homer to Dylan Carlson, but reports indicate he was sharp overall. How well Cabrera is recovering from the BP session will play a part in when he's seriously considered for a move up to the active roster, with manager Mike Shildt noting "it's really just about checking off the boxes to get back into game-ready shape" with respect to both Cabrera and fellow hurler and alternate training site mate Alex Reyes.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Live BP on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (illness) is scheduled to throw live batting practice at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield on Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Cabrera and fellow hurler Alex Reyes have both been building their arms up in Springfield the last several days after positive COVID-19 tests delayed their arrivals to summer camp. Cabrera was described as "progressing nicely" by manager Mike Shildt earlier in the week and has already thrown a pair of bullpen sessions that he's recovered well from. If the live BP session goes smoothly Wednesday, Cabrera could potentially be added to the big-league roster shortly thereafter.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Doing well in Springfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (illness) is "progressing nicely" at the Cardinals' alternate training site in Springfield according to manager Mike Shildt, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Cabrera was a late arrival for summer camp after a positive COVID-19 test and was therefore left off the Opening Day roster in order to make up for lost time. He's apparently been putting his Springfield deployment to good use, having already thrown one bullpen session that he recovered well from and lining up for a second one no later than Monday. If all continues smoothly, Cabrera will move on to facing hitters in live batting practice before being considered for activation.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Cleared and playing catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (illness) reported to camp Saturday and played catch at Busch Stadium, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The young southpaw was absent from the first couple weeks of summer camp after testing positive for COVID-19, but he's now cleared the league's testing protocols. Cabrera may not be ready for the start of the season with less than a week until Opening Day, especially as manager Mike Shildt indicated the 23-year-old won't be rushed into game readiness.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Getting close to camp arrival?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was described by manager Mike Shildt on Friday as "getting closer" to making his summer camp debut, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Cabrera recently produced a second positive COVID-19 test after initially generating one during the team's summer camp intake process. However, Shildt's comments offer reason for optimism, although it's also important to note Cabrera would likely not be ready to pitch in the earliest stages of the regular season even if he arrived in the coming days. Shildt also noted Cabrera would not be rushed once he is on site, although anticipation is high for the southpaw due to his 96 mph fastball and a curve he focused on improving this past offseason.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Has second positive COVID test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera produced a second positive COVID-19 test and consequently remains under quarantine, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports. "Every day that goes by that they're not here is more of a challenge," manager Mike Shildt said about the players being ready for Opening Day. "The biggest two factors will be when they get here, that alone might [impact] their ability to start the season with us, but if they do get here, we still have an opportunity to work into ... how they look and how they can get ready without the feeling of rushing."

The southpaw initially tested positive during intake screenings for summer camp, and he evidently hasn't overcome infection more than 10 days later. Shildt did report Cabrera is asymptomatic, but he'll have to test negative twice within a 24-hour span before being allowed to join the team.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera has tested positive for COVID-19.

Cabrera was held out of the Cardinals' first workout of camp due to a pending test result, and he'll now be forced to miss more time after his test came back positive. Whether or not he'll be available for the start of the regular season remains to be seen.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Non-participant pending test result
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was unable to participate in the Cardinals' first summer camp workout at Busch Stadium on Friday due to a pending COVID-19 test result, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Cabrera was one of four players -- Carlos Martinez, Ivan Herrera and Elehuris Montero being the other three -- that had been in the Dominican Republic during the shutdown and was awaiting the results of his test. Cabrera and the rest of the group were tested Thursday morning, approximately a day later than originally planned because of a flight delay. Assuming a clean bill of health, the 23-year-old southpaw may have his test results back in time to participate in Saturday's workout. Assuming good news, he'll soon resume his competition for a bullpen role.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Projected for middle-relief duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera would be a strong candidate for middle-relief work during an abbreviated 2020 season, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The virtual certainty of expanded rosters during any 2020 season that unfolds makes the versatile Cabrera one of the team's likely multi-inning bullpen options in Goold's view. The 23-year-old southpaw was optioned to Triple-A Memphis back on March 26 in a procedural move; however, with teams expected to manage starters' innings more closely than usual during a potential 2020 season, it's likely the Cardinals keep pitchers capable of handling robust workloads such as Cabrera at the ready.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Likely promotion candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera would be a likely beneficiary of expanded rosters in an abbreviated 2020 season, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The southpaw was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on March 26, but Hummel notes both Cabrera's stuff and ability to serve as a spot starter when necessary render him an appealing resource to utilize an extra roster spot on. The 23-year-old can exceed 96 mph with his fastball and flashed his ability to miss bats during spring training, posting a 1.50 ERA and 8:2 K:BB across six innings over four appearances (two starts). Another factor that could contribute to Cabrera's chances of opening the campaign on the big-league roster is the chance the minor-league season is canceled altogether, a development that would offer the Cardinals further incentive to keep the promising pitcher in an environment where he can still see occasional game action.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Moved to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

Cabrera is on track to open the year in the minors with the delayed start to the regular season giving the Cardinals extra time to get healthy. It's unclear whether Cabrera will work as a starter or reliever with Memphis after being deployed in both roles last season.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Slated to pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera (fingernail) is listed as an available relief option Sunday for the Cardinals in their Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Cabrera has received the green light to resume pitching in games after exiting early in his previous appearance Monday against the Twins with a cracked fingernail on his left hand. Assuming the fingernail presents no further issues with locating his pitches, Cabrera should have a good case for breaking camp with the Cardinals as a long reliever. Cabrera saw his odds of joining the Opening Day roster improve Saturday, when president of baseball operations John Mozeliak admitted that Andrew Miller (arm) will likely begin the season on the injured list.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Leaves with cracked fingernail
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera is dealing with a cracked fingernail on his left hand that forced him to exit Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Cabrera appeared to avoid a serious injury after leaving Monday's game, and it's unlikely that he'll miss much, if any, time as a result. The southpaw allowed two walks and one hit while recording one strikeout over one scoreless inning against the Twins prior to his departure.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Exits Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera exited Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins with an apparent injury, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Cabrera had an impressive outing during his first start of the spring Wednesday, but he was forced to exit Monday's game with trainers while potentially favoring his hand. The exact nature and severity of the injury are not yet known. The southpaw is in contention for a spot in the Cardinals' bullpen to begin the season, but it's unclear whether he'll be forced to miss time as a result of his injury.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Dominates in first spring outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera started Wednesday's Grapefruit League win over the Astros, firing two scoreless innings during which he allowed one hit and no walks while recording two strikeouts.

The hard-throwing left-hander, who's considered one of many candidates for one of the two open spots in the Cardinals' rotation to start the season, made a very strong case for his candidacy in his first taste of spring action. Per Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cabrera allowed just one ball to leave the infield over his pair of frames and was able to hit 96 mph on the radar gun with his sinker. The 23-year-old also recorded two called third strikes with his curveball and was extremely sharp, throwing 19 of 23 pitches for strikes, including 10 over an 11-pitch stretch in the second inning. Goold also reports Cabrera is focused on being more aggressive this spring, especially with his breaking pitch, with the goal throwing it from the same arm slot and with the same velocity as his fastball.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Candidate for short-term starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera is one of several pitchers that could temporarily fill Miles Mikolas' (forearm) spot in the rotation while the latter is sidelined, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Cabrera has garnered plenty of starting experience during a minor-league career that dates back to 2015, and he even logged a pair of starts during his initial big-league stint last season. The 23-year-old southpaw is therefore a candidate to take Mikolas' spot while the latter recovers from a flexor tendon injury over the next month-plus, but Cabrera faces competition from a crowded field of candidates that includes Kwang-Hyun Kim, John Gant, Ryan Helsley and Daniel Ponce de Leon.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Nabs save in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was credited with his first career save in a win over the Giants on Thursday, firing three scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and recorded three strikeouts.

Saves are not normally associated with 10-0 victories, but the fact Cabrera preserved the lead for the final three innings technically qualified him for such. It was the 22-year-old southpaw's first appearance since his most recent callup last Sunday, and he should continue seeing occasional relief work throughout the balance of the season.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Stays with big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was recalled by the Cardinals on Sunday.

Cabrera served as the 26th man for the team's doubleheader Saturday but will stick with the team as rosters expand. He'll have the opportunity to improve his 6.17 ERA and 1.89 WHIP across 11.2 big-league innings for the season while closing the campaign in the Cardinals' bullpen.

Cardinals' Genesis Cabrera: Up as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds.

Cabrera will provide the Cardinals with bullpen reinforcements with the team set to play four games in two days. With rosters set to expand Sunday, the left-hander is expected to stick with the big club following Saturday's twin bill. He owns a 6.17 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB in 11.2 big-league innings this season, with his last appearance coming in June.
