Paul Mainieri on Daniel Cabrera:
“Before he is done with his career at LSU, Daniel Cabrera will impact the baseball program in an enormous way. I have been so anxious to have him begin his career at LSU, as he has certainly made his mark on prep baseball in Louisiana. Daniel is a very developed hitter who rarely strikes out and also hits the ball with authority. He is playing in a collegiate summer league prior to his freshman year at LSU, made the All-Star team in the Cal Ripken League, and is tearing it up at the plate. He is an outstanding defensive outfielder that possesses a strong and accurate arm. He is also capable of being a good left-handed pitcher, if we want to pursue that route.”
