WASHINGTON (AP) With Ryan Zimmerman sidelined indefinitely, the Washington Nationals moved swiftly to bolster their infield by acquiring two-time All-Star infielder Asdrubal Cabrera from the Cleveland Indians.
The NL East leader obtained Cabrera and cash from the Cleveland Indians for shortstop Zach Walters at Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.
"He's battle-tested," Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said of Cabrera. "He's been in the playoffs before. He's been through pennant races. He's a terrific two-way player. He's a great defensive middle infielder."
