Cabrera fumbles in the field

Extra Bases

March 24, 2008|By JEFF ZREBIEC

Orioles starting pitcher Daniel Cabrera spent the first two weeks of spring training taking extra PFP, an acronym for pitcher's fielding practice. And if manager Dave Trembley has his way, Cabrera will probably spend the last week of workouts doing the same thing.

Cabrera, who has always had a hard time fielding his position, struggled mightily yesterday in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Twins, probably costing himself three runs because of his inability to make a routine play.

He was assessed two errors, but he could have easily been credited with four.

"The fielding wasn't good," Trembley said. "That's something that we'll continue to work on."
