(PR) The Trenton Thunder, Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, announced Friday that LHP Cesar Cabral, a member of the Yankees’ 40-man roster who is currently on the 60-day disabled list, has been transferred to the team from Class-A Tampa to continue his Major League rehab. Additionally, the Major League rehab for both Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis has ended.
Cabral, 24, made five rehab appearances this season with the Tampa Yankees and went 0-0 with a 2.57 ERA (7.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 8 BB, 5 K). He missed the entire 2012 season with a left elbow fracture suffered during Spring Training.
The Yankees acquired Cabral in a trade from the Kansas City Royals following the 2011 season, only weeks after the Royals had selected him in the Major League Rule V draft. Cabral spent the first six years of his career in the Red Sox minor league system and has never pitched above Double-A.
