Giants get veteran SS Cabrera for OF Neal

Saturday, July 30

CINCINNATI — Still intent on shoring up their infield, the Giants obtained 15-year veteran Orlando Cabrera from the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night for Minor League outfielder Thomas Neal.

Cabrera, 36, has played 83 games this season at second base for Cleveland, which has Asdrubal Cabrera at shortstop. But moving back to short, where he has played 1,807 games, shouldn’t be a problem for Cabrera, who’s hitting .244 with four home runs and 38 RBIs.

Neal, 23, had spent six years in the Giants organization. He was batting .295 with two home runs and 25 RBIs in 60 games for Triple-A Fresno.

Good stuff. That’s a good surprise

Send Crawford back down, dude can’t hit for #%#

You got your wish

Speaking of minor leaguers . . . any chance we’ll see Brett Pill up this year? What about Mark DeRosa?

I doubt you’ll see Brett Pill; I’m so slow to respond that you already know about DeRosa
