The London Majors are happy to announce the signing of former big-league left-handed pitcher Cesar Cabral.
Cabral, 33, played parts of three seasons in the MLB, split between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles, striking out nine batters in 5.2 innings over 14 appearances from 2013-2015. The Sabana Grande de Palenque, Dominican Republic native made his MLB debut on September 2, 2013, tossing a scoreless inning while striking out two batters against the Chicago White Sox.
The hard-throwing left-handed pitcher played for the Licey in the Dominican Winter League this winter and spent time pitching internationally, where he played in Japan with the Tokushima Indigo Socks, then two stints in the Atlantic League with the Sugar Land Skeeters and York Revolution from 2018-2019.
The 6-3, 250 lb. pitcher is known for being deceptive, as he throws the ball at three different arm angles while featuring a mid-90s fastball, sinker and several breaking balls. He also spent 10 seasons in the minor leagues, where he had a 4.15 ERA in 474.2 cumulative innings, holding an 8.9 strikeout per nine and a 3.6 walks per nine while keeping the ball in the ballpark well with a 0.3 home runs per-nine rate.
“We are excited to add a player like Cesar Cabral to our team. He has MLB experience and will be someone I lean on to help us win games. I always like to have solid pitching and defence and Cabral will be another top arm that I can hand to ball to whether it be to start games or out of the bullpen”, says Roop Chanderdat, GM & Field Manager.

The 100-year old summer league is one of the oldest baseball leagues in the world, with the league established in 1919, drawing significantly more fans, in a friendly ballpark experience, than any league of its kind.
