Earlier this year, he one-hit the Rockies over six innings and also two-hit the Nationals over six. In fact, if you take out a seven-hit outing at the Astros just before he landed on the IL, Cabrera has allowed a total of four hits over 29 innings in his last six starts between the majors and minors.
His return to the mound Friday is the headliner from this weekend, but he’ll need to keep it going for another four starts to live up to Reid Detmers‘ return. The Angels‘ left-hander was strong again over seven innings Sunday. Meanwhile, Cabrera’s teammate, Jesus Luzardo, looked good in his second start back from the IL Sunday. Likewise, Jean Segura just returned from a two-month absence for a broken finger, and Paul DeJong is back after a three-month banishment to Triple-A. Even little-known Michael Massey is a returnee of sorts after getting a brief look early in July.
They’re all among the eight players featured in today’s Waiver Wire.
