Genesis Cabrera

Cabrera, acquired at last year's trade deadline, has shown two different versions of himself since coming over from the Cardinals. The left-hander made 29 post-trade appearances for the Jays last year, sporting a 2.66 ERA, 3.68 FIP and 162 ERA+ across 23.2 innings of work.

Things have gone much differently for him in 2024, though. Cabrera has 25 outings under his belt already but is sporting an ERA in the mid-5.00s and has ran into trouble in the vast majority of those games. His strikeout rate is down, his walk rate has skyrocketed and he's also allowing over 11 hits per nine innings, which is nearly double his rate from last year.

Alongside Tim Mayza, the Blue Jays want to have at least one more left-handed reliever in the bullpen, but Cabrera hasn't seemed to be the answer so far. Brendon Little has also gotten some playing time, too, but he hasn't been sharp either. This puts the Jays in a weird spot if they want to continue to roster two LHP in the 'pen.

Cabrera is still under team control for at least one more year, as he's arbitration-eligible this offseason and then slated to hit free agency at the end of the 2025 campaign. He's also still got minor league options, so his 26-man spot is in much more jeopardy than his 40-man spot.
