2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: At 6-4 and 210 pounds, Cabbage is a tremendous athlete. That athleticism went viral when his put-back dunk broke the rim in a basketball game last year. He enjoyed basketball, but it was baseball that was his best sport. He is believed to have one of the sweeter left-handed swings to come out of the prep ranks for the 2015 draft. At Grainger High School in Tennessee, he hit .495 with eight home runs in his senior season. He was also 3-1 with a 1.25 ERA on the mound. When the Twins made him their 4th round pick, and signed him for significantly over slot value, he gave up a scholarship to the University of Tennessee. He has a strong arm and played primarily at shortstop in high school. However, he will likely play third base as a pro though outfield may be his ultimate position. He is very smart as evidenced by his 4.0 GPA. He also has a very strong work ethic.
