It is already known that Ubaldo Jimenez has been traded to the Indians, but the team recently made another move. Orlando Cabrera has been traded to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for minor league outfielder Thomas Neal.
Jordan Bastian reported the trade on Twitter, and other sources have confirmed the deal.
Cabrera was a great veteran presence on the team, but it was only a matter of team before he was moved. Jason Kipnis is seen as the future at second, and the future is now for the Indians. The front office is clearly pushing for the playoffs, as they gave up top prospects in Alex White and Drew Pomeranz in order to acquire Ubaldo Jimenez.
Expect more trades before the deadline.
