Jolbert Alexis Cabrera (born December 8, 1972 in Cartagena, Colombia) is a Major League Baseball outfielder/infielder for the Baltimore Orioles organization. Cabrera played with the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks in Japan's Pacific League for two years. Previously, he played in Major League Baseball for the Cleveland Indians (1998-2002), Los Angeles Dodgers (2002-2003), and Seattle Mariners (2004). Cabrera hits and throws right-handed. He is the older brother of shortstop Orlando Cabrera. The two played together during the 1997 season while members of the Ottawa Lynx, the Montreal Expos Triple-A affiliate.

Cabrera is a highly versatile player able to play every position but pitcher and catcher and holds his own wherever he goes. He is basically a line-drive hitter with some pop in his bat. As a runner, he has above-average speed and also can get the occasional bag.

During the 2006-2007 offseason, Cabrera signed a minor league contract with the St. Louis Cardinals that included an invitation to spring training; after spending most of the year with their Triple-A affiliate, the Memphis Redbirds, Cabrera was released and signed a minor league contract with Colorado Rockies. Cabrera became a free agent at the end of the season.
