Future Stars Edward Cabrera (MLB 21)

If you played MLB The Show 21, you knew the insanity that was Future Stars Edward Cabrera. Another NL East Team Affinity award, the Miami Marlins’ right-hander is up there with ‘21 Jacob deGrom, ‘20 Corey Kluber, or ‘19 Clayton Kershaw. The card was released with Team Affinity Season 2, and for an early/mid-season card, it was good attribute-wise, but it played like a 99 for many players.

Cabrera’s Future Stars card had just one attribute above 100: his hits/9 at 101. His control was not great, with just 74 BB/9 and 86 control. But his sinker was next to unhittable. Cabrera’s sinker sat 95, but with the outlier quirk, it regularly hit 98-101 MPH. On top of that, it had immense break. Not to mention, he had a four-seam fastball that also hit 100 MPH, a slider, a curveball, and a change-up. This card gave players nightmares and definitely won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
