The Santiago native had a good debut allowing just four hits against the Nationals
Wednesday night came the long-awaited opportunity for the young Dominican pitcher Edward cabrera to debut from a mound in the majors.
The 23-year-old right-hander had a quality start with 6 1/3 innings of just 4 hits, three earned runs, 3 transfers and two strikeouts.
Edward Brany Cabrera (Estrellas Orientales in LIDOM) started with everything by not allowing hits until the third inning with a Luis García hit to right field.
Things got complicated for the Dominican in the sixth inning when he walked Alcides Escobar and was able to dominate the fearsome Juan Soto with a fly to center. The problems continued with back-to-back home runs by Josh Bell and Yadiel Hernandez.
The Dominican left without a decision, in a game that ended in ten innings with a 4-3 victory for the Marlins, but he looked confident and with character during the first innings of a game that did not look like his debut.
The future looks bright is this look for the Miami marlins and the fruits are already being seen.

At 25 years of age, Sandy AlcantaraHe has a great future ahead of him and has remained one of the best Dominican pitchers of the season despite his record of only 7 wins and 12 losses, being the head of the Marlins’ rotation.
But the Florida franchise has other promises within its ranks with the 23-year-old also right, Sixto Sanchez, which many predicted with the possibility of competing for the Rookie of the Year award this season but that sadly a surgery to correct a tear in his shoulder left him out for the rest of the season, after debuting in 2020.
The Marlins also have an 18-year-old right-hander named Eury Perez who signed for a $ 200,000 bond in 2019 that in the last year has grown 4 inches to a height of 6 feet 8 inches at 200 pounds, and is listed as the 7th prospect of the entire organization.
According to Baseball America, the Marlins are the fifth best farm in the Major Leagues and Dominican pitchers are an important factor in this assessment.
