The Cleveland Indians have traded Orlando Cabrera to the San Francisco Giants for prospect Thomas Neal. Neal is currently batting .295 with 13 Doubles, 3 Triples, 2 Home Runs, and 25RBI. The 23 year old has seen his power numbers fall significantly over the last three seasons. He had a career year for High-A San Jose in 2009 hitting .337 with 41 Doubles and 22 Home Runs. The average remained solid but the power numbers fell in 2010 as Neal hit .291 with 40 Doubles, 12 Home Runs, and 69 RBI’s for the Double-A Richmond Flying Squirrels.
