Cabrera, 25, spent the entire 2013 season on the 60-day disabled list with a shoulder injury. He made his big-league debut in June of 2012 and pitched in only two games at the level, allowing seven earned runs in 5⅔ innings.

The Rockies signed Cabrera as an amateur free-agent in 2008. He worked his way toward becoming a legitimate prospect by displaying a change-up that was near-MLB-ready before the injury. In 2012, Cabrera posted a 3.05 ERA in 129⅔ minor league innings while striking out 121 batters and walked only 35.

Cabrera is currently rated as the No. 19 PuRP.

The Rockies also removed Manny Corpas and Jeff Manship from the 40-man roster on Wednesday.
