Outfielder Willie Cabrera joins Revs
Free agent outfielder Willie Cabrera has joined the Revolution, replacing the inactive Desmond Henry on York’s roster.
Cabrera, in his 10th professional season, spent the last three with the St. Paul Saints of the American Association, enjoying great success. In 238 games with St. Paul, the right-handed bat hit .316, with 36 home runs and 158 RBI from 2012-2014. His best overall season for the Saints came in 2013, when he hit .317 with 13 homers and 63 RBI in 85 games.
Cabrera’s best season as a pro came at A-Advanced Myrtle Beach in the Atlanta Braves system in 2008, where he hit .290 with 16 home runs and 78 driven in, in 116 games. After a call-up to Double-A in 2008, he spent all of the 2009 through 2011 seasons at Double-A Mississippi and Triple-A Gwinnett with the Braves prior to joining St. Paul.
The Los Angeles native was signed as an amateur free agent by the Braves in 2006, making his professional debut that season.
