Marlins’ Edward Cabrera throws change as Jacob deGrom

If you looked at the scoreboard at Coors Field in Colorado during the second inning of the season opener of the Big leagues of Edward Cabrera for the Marlins on Wednesday, they would have seen the following: “95.5 mph – Gearbox“.

It was real. Cabrera, the Marlins’ No. 4 prospect according to MLB Pipeline (and the No. 48 prospect in baseball), was called up to make his season debut in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Rockies. He didn’t disappoint: The 24-year-old right-hander from Santiago, Dominican Republic was sitting between 93 and 99 mph on his four-seam fastball, and yes, he threw 35 changeups with an average speed of 93.6 mph and a max of 95.5 mph. It was the hardest changeup ever recorded, according to Baseball Savant.

Cabrera’s 95.5 mph changeup went viral for his power to trick opposing hitters and was immediately compared to the one thrown by the New York Mets’ ace, Jacob deGromwho has repeatedly used it when he has been seen healthy and pitching for the Metropolitans.
