Pirate Draft Options at SS: Yordy Cabrera

Yordy Cabrera was mentioned by Jason (that guy is funny and now smart too!?) in the comments so we have some videos up for everyone to enjoy on this snowy weekend.  I took a look at this kid and immediately thought, holy hell.

Cabrera is a 6’4″ SS at Lakeland HS.   Scouting reports say he is very strong, projects to hit with plus power, and has a major league arm.  If he weren’t such a solid position player, he could be successful as a pitcher reports say as his fastball touches 94-95. 

This report lists Cabrera as the fifth best SS in the upcoming draft with one scout hammering the swing and his fielding skills projecting him as an eventual corner outfielder.  He is a big guy and we will keep an eye on his senior year this season because as MLB Bonus Baby said, if he has a great year he could draw Jio Mier comparisions.

He played on the Under Armour Franchise team and has verbally committed to Miami.  Cabrera will be 20 years old shortly after he graduates this year.  Jonathan Mayo has Cabrera as the third ranked SS and 20th overall check it out here.

Yordy and Bryce are just a few of the players featured in the 2009 AFLAC All-American Weekend (Christian Colon was the MVP of this event in 2007) video below:
