Braves sign Dominican pitcher

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Because thats what the team needs: even more minor league pitching depth! There is no such thing as a pitching prospect, as we all know. The Braves always seem to be able to make fantastic splashes in international free agency, signing guys like Julio Teheran, Randall Delgado, and most recently, Edward Salcedo. Now, another man joins the list. Today, the team inked 16 year old Mauricio Cabrera of the Dominican to a six figure contract. After news of the signing broke, I reached out to ESPN's Keith Law on Twitter and asked if he thought Cabrera would start off in some complex ball, or start off right away in the DSL. Law said that (in a general tweet...not one to me) that he thought Cabrera was an "athletic kid, avg FB now, chance for 3 pitches". Considering that he's only16 years old, I'll take the average fastball at the moment with his velocity increasing as he ages. And the chance for 3 pitches...gotta love it. Looks like the depth of the system just got a tad bit deeper.
