Pirates Prospect Ramon Cabrera Wins Florida State League Batting Championship

Pirates catching prospect Ramon Cabrera has won the Florida State League batting title with a .343 average. His Bradenton Marauders teammates Eleyvs Gonzalez and Adalberto Santos came in second and fourth. In addition, the Marauders are headed to the Florida State League playoffs.

Cabrera is a very short and stocky catcher, and not many players with his body type end up being successful in the big leagues. But his numbers this year are undeniable - in addition to the batting average, he also walked more often than he struck out and posted a .410 on-base percentage as a 21-year-old in Class A+.

The Marauders play in one of the Florida State League's more favorable hitter's parks, so it isn't all that surprising that so many of their hitters put up huge numbers, but their pitchers' raw numbers were also about average, making Bradenton a well-above-average team overall.
