SP,RP - STL
Genesis Cabrera pitched the final inning and two thirds, striking out three and not allowing a baserunner as the Cardinals topped the Pirates 5-4 on Saturday. The Cardinals are now 25-24 and in Second Place in the NL Central.
Cabrera has a 4-1 record with one save and a 2.89 ERA in 18 2/3 innings pitched for the Cardinals this season. He has gotten lucky with BABIP, his .129 season mark is .131 points lower than his .260 BABIP career average, as his luck evens out expect his ERA to rise. With Giovanny Gallegos scheduled to rejoin the team next week, don't expect Cabrera to receive too many more save opportunities. Owners in standard 12-team redraft leagues can leave him on the Waiver Wire.
Genesis Cabrera pitched one inning allowing a walk and recording a strike out as the Cardinals beat the Twins 6-4 in Game Two Tuesday. It seems kind of silly that Cabrera could record a win in a game that Cardinals' starter Daniel Ponce de Leon left with a lead that was never surrendered, despite Cabrera not pitching past the fifth inning himself, but those are the rules. The Cardinals move to 18-17 with the win and are in second place in the NL Central.
Cabrera is 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA, 19 strike outs and 10 walks in 13 1/3 innings pitched this season. He has pitched capably in middle relief for the Cardinals but has not recorded a hold or save this season. Owners in 12-team standard redraft leagues can leave Cabrera on the Waiver Wire.
Genesis Cabrera (COVID-19) will likely be activated prior to the Cardinals' series with the Cubs that begins on Friday.
Cabrera tested positive for the virus back during summer camp but is "luckily" in a better spot than his teammates following the club's recent outbreak. The lefty will work out of the bullpen once he returns.
Genesis Cabrera is dealing with a cracked fingernail on his left hand that forced him to exit Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins.
Cabrera allowed two walks and one hit while striking out one across a scoreless inning before exiting Monday's 6-1 win over the Twins. He appears to have avoided a serious injury and is currently day-to-day. Cabrera has been a starter most of his minor league career, but will come out of the bullpen in 2020. He is someone to keep an eye on in NL only leagues.
