Enos Milton Cabell, Jr. (pronounced "ca-BELL", born October 8, 1949 in Fort Riley, Kansasmarker) is a former third baseman and first baseman in Major League Baseball who played 15 seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, the Houston Astros, the San Francisco Giants, the Detroit Tigers, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cabell is a cousin of center fielder Ken Landreaux.

Cabell is best known as the leadoff hitter for the Astros in the late 1970s. He averaged a .277 batting average for his career. On February 28, 1986, Cabell and six others were suspended for the entire season for admitting during the Pittsburgh drug trials that they were involved in cocaine abuse. The suspensions for all seven were avoided after agreeing to large anti-drug donations and community service.

Currently, he serves as a special assistant to Astros General Manager Ed Wade.

In December 2008, Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young filed suit against Cabell and two others for applying for a trademark to use Young's initials and "Invinceable" nickname to sell products without Young's permission in 2006. The suit claims that their use of Young's name has damaged endorsement deals for Young; he is asking the court to give him the exclusive rights to use the initials and nickname. Cabell denies any wrongdoing.
