Somebody recorded the Giants newest wunderkind during a tryout at the Giants' Dominican training camp just a few short weeks ago. He posted it to youtube, so we now have the first known video of Cabrera in a Giants uniform. You have to love the sound of the ball coming off of his bat.
UPDATE: It looks like this clip is no longer available, but I do have a still photo of it in the comments section
For those of us that can't get enough of seeing him in action, here's a few more clips of Cabrera over the past 12 months. He's raw, but what kid who turned 16 years old just 5 months ago isn't? He's got a strong arm, but it's not accurate or consistent. Basically, somebody needs to coach him up on the proper mehanics to use when throwing from the OF. He's got a simple swing, quick hands and strong wrists, but needs to work on being quicker to the ball. You can see that his swing mechanics have progressed from a big leg kick and some wasted motion to where he now just lifts his heel off the ground and then plants his front foot quickly back down to trigger his swing.
