After playing parts of seven seasons in the majors, Jolbert Cabrera played in Japan for the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks in 2005 and 2006. In 2005, he hit .297 with 8 home runs in 131 games for the team but dropped off to .260 with 8 homers in 90 games the next year. In 2007, he signed with the St. Louis Cardinals organization and hit .231 in 45 games with the Memphis Redbirds before being released in August. He was immediately signed by the Colorado Rockies, and he hit .329 in 19 games with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. After the season, he became a free agent and was signed by the Cincinnati Reds organization.
Cabrera is the brother of Orlando Cabrera and the son of scout Jolbert Cabrera, who was responsible for signing Edgar Renteria for the Florida Marlins. The two Cabrera brothers were originally signed by the Montreal Expos, but Jolbert had left the organization as a minor league free agent by the time he made his major league debut with the Cleveland Indians in 1998. He was originally a middle infielder in the minor leagues but became a utility player in the majors, logging most of his playing time in the outfield, and also spending time at third and first base in addition to the two middle infield positions.
Cabrera became a coach with the AZL Reds in 2014 and Billings Mustangs in 2015. He coached for Colombia when they won one of the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers to win a trip to the 2017 World Baseball Classic, their first World Baseball Classic trip. Moving to the San Francisco Giants' chain, Cabrera was a coach for the AZL Giants in 2016.
