Twins acquire Orlando Cabrera

Update 12:20 PM: It has been confirmed. The Twins have traded 21-year-old Tyler Ladendorf for 34-year-old Orlando Cabrera. I like this move a lot for both teams. The Twins get 'their guy' while the A's get a promising prospect.

The Twins have reportedly acquired Orlando Cabrera from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for shortstop prospect Tyler Ladendorf.

On first thought, I think it's a fair trade. While Ladendorf is a promising young prospect, he's not a "Top Prospect" and this should please the players.

Stay tuned as we hear more developments.
