Hey guys, it's worth noting that many are speculating, including me that last night's terrible outing probably got Cabral DFA'd. There is no question I was pretty annoyed about the Yankee bullpen totally imploding last night. I wasn't pleased with Adam Warren, and I was definitely unhappy with Cesar Cabral. Read WHEN GOOD FRIDAY TURNS BAD for more.
According to Marly Rivera of ESPN, Cabral was just designated for assignment:
Cabral just told me he was designated for assignmentNow look,one bad outing down not a pitcher make. You really need to gauge a guy on his body of work. That being said, the Yankees are making a statement here. They weren't pleased with last night, no one was.

As Jeff Todd of MLBTradeRumors.com points out: " In his best season as a reliever, 2011, he worked to a 2.95 ERA in 55 innings at the High-A and Double-A level." Hey, maybe that's where Cabral needs to stay for a bit and get some confidence, or maybe over time, the Yanks will release the guy entirely... we shall see.
