MLB Draft Countdown: #41, Daniel Cabrera, OF, LSU

Player: Daniel Cabrera Draft Day Age: 21
School: LSU Position(s): OF
Height: 6’1” Weight: 195 lbs. Bats: Left Throws: Left
Hit: Leg kick but good balance. Gets barrel to ball quickly. Ball can jump. More gap power but plenty of hope for more HR production. Will always be contact first, type of guy who can flirt with .300 and develop 20 HR power.
Field: Left fielder first two seasons, moved to right in 2020 but shortened season left scouts wanting to see more. Arm should be enough to hold down right. Has run well when timed in 60, but play speed is more average. Decent base runner, makes good reads in field. Average all around in field and run.
Summary: Hard to argue with the production he put forth at LSU. Three-year starter in elite conference. Watching LSU Cabrera has stood out since freshman year and been on scout’s radars since HS. Purely on tools, he can be overlooked, but the totality of his game gives him a first round track record. I would not have any issue with a team taking him in the 15-25 range, but wouldn’t be shocked to see him fall to round three either.
