Orlando Cabrera is now a member of the Minnesota Twins, according to two sources with knowledge of the talks.
The A’s will receive minor-league shortstop Tyler Ladendorf, according to an A’s team source….
Top Twins prospect Danny Valencia was thought to be the A’s original target, but Landendorfwas a second-round pick last year.
I’m not sure what to make of Ladendorf. But I said last week that I would be happy to get Wallace for Holliday and anything at all for Cabrera, so I guess I’m happy.
Also, in other A’s news, Justin Duchscherer’s rehab start tonight at Triple-A Sacramento has been scrapped. No reason has been stated, but his return from elbow surgery has twice been interrupted by back trouble.
