Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera traded to Washington Nationals for INF prospect Zach Walters

By Stephanie Storm Published: July 31, 2014

For the second time in as many days, the Indians have traded a veteran player for a minor league prospect.

After underachieving starting pitcher Justin Masterson was shipped to St. Louis Wednesday for outfield prospect James Ramsey, and hour before Thursday’s 4 p.m. trade deadline, Tribe shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera was shipped to the Washington Nationals for infield prospect Zach Walters.

Walters, 24, is primarily a shortstop, but has recently seen time at a few other infield spots this season. He hit .300 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI and had a .965 OPS at Triple-A Syracuse before recently being called up by the Nationals to make his major league debut.

Cabrera, 28, is a two-time All-Star, but is batting just .246 with 22 doubles, two triples, nine home runs and 40 RBI in 97 games with the Tribe this year.
