Remember Melky Cabrera? He Could Make an Appearance in 2006
Friday, December 16, 2005

You may remember little Melky from last summer when he was called up from Trenton to show the Yanks what he could do in centerfield. He didn’t do much then; strikeouts were a big problem and he didn’t bat in any runs. Despite doing well defensively in the minors, he struggled in the field as well. He looked even younger than his twenty-one years and seemed to be severely overwhelmed and overmatched.

Since being sent back to the minors after just six games in the Bronx, Melky has been doing his best to improve his reputation as a player. He has been busy this winter playing in the Dominican, and he has been tearing up both the field and the batters box. In eighty-four at-bats, Melky has struck out just nine times while walking eleven times, and his BA is .298, including six doubles and a triple.

What could this mean for the future of the Yankees? Melky’s name hasn’t been mentioned as an option for the opening in centerfield, but I wouldn’t rule it out yet. Cano has shown Cashman and the rest of the organization just how fast a young kid from the Dominican can bring his game up to speed. At the very least, Melky’s winter ball performance will ensure that his name will be in the Yankees’ minds for a bench player or extra outfielder.

    I think Melky will do well and possibly be a lead-off guy. When you are nervous, forgetaboutit! You must have confidence to perform. Eventually Melky will get there... when he knows he will get a solid chance, and doesn't feel he is 'playing' for his position.
