Fernando Cabrera Designated For Assignment

A news item I missed on the hectic trade deadline day - the Indians designated 25 year-old reliever Fernando Cabrera for assignment.  He'll be claimed on waivers.  As far as I can figure, Cabrera might as well start looking for an apartment in Tampa Bay - they should have first dibs on him and would have no reason to pass him up.  They can stick him in the Major League bullpen, another advantage.

Cabrera throws in the mid to high-90s and complements that with a nasty splitter.  He was once considered the Indians' "Closer Of The Future."  That tag seems like a curse - see Craig Hansen, Travis Bowyer, and a host of others. We'll see if the D-Rays, Rangers, or some other team can pick him up and teach him some control.
