The Wizard of Os: Who is Oswaldo Cabrera?

With the record-smashing start to the season the New York Yankees had, you could not have convinced me that they would reserve a postseason roster spot for a rookie other than maybe Anthony Volpe. Aside from Aaron Judge's historic season, this may be the biggest surprise of all. There's another rookie in town, and he has more than earned the pinstripes number 95.

With just 42 games played in the Majors, Oswaldo Cabrera is hitting .245 with six home runs and 19 RBI.

As to where you can spot him on the field, it's anyone's guess. He's been seen at first base, second base, third base, shortstop, right field, and left field.

Is there anywhere Oswaldo Cabrera Can't Play?

When Meredith Marakovits asked if he could handle it behind the plate, he referenced his time, "back in the day" as a catcher. Is there anything he can't do? Time will tell, but one thing is sure - he has proven to be a vital piece of your everyday New York Yankees roster. 

Where's Oswaldo Cabrera in the postseason? We know one thing, Toto, he's not in Scranton anymore.

The Yankees round out their regular season play in Arlington against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday at 4:05 p.m. and will open postseason play on Tuesday, October 11.
