José Alberto Cabrera (born March 24, 1972) is a Dominican Republic baseball player whose American career as a middle-relief pitcher in Major League Baseball lasted from 1997 through 2002. Listed at 6 ft., 200 lbs., he has batted and thrown right-handed.
Born in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic's second-largest city, José Cabrera entered the majors in 1997 with the Houston Astros, playing four years for them before joining the Atlanta Braves (2001) and Milwaukee Brewers (2002). His most productive season came in 2001 with the Braves, when he posted career-highs with seven wins (7) and a 2.88 ERA in 55 appearances coming out of the bullpen. Before the 2002 season, he was sent by Atlanta, along with Paul Bako, to Milwaukee in the same transaction that brought Henry Blanco to the Braves. He went 6–10 in 50 games, including 11 starts, and set career-numbers in strikeouts (61) and innings pitched (103 1⁄3).
Following his major league career, Cabrera pitched for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the International League during the 2003 season. In 2008, he signed with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball.
