The New York Yankees acquired 3B/OF Martin Prado from the Arizona Diamondbacks for C Peter O'Brien.
Fantasy Tip: Prado instantly gains fantasy value and will be a popular AL-only crossover FAAB piece. O'Brien is a fine power prospect who's in the midst of a breakout year in the minors. Watch for him in the next season or two to arrive in the majors, depending on Miguel Montero's future.

Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera is being looked at by the Toronto Blue Jays as they look for an everyday second baseman. Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Martin Prado and 2B Aaron Hill are considered to be too expensive. Cabrera is hitting .249 with nine home runs and 40 RBIs this year.
Fantasy Tip: A move to Toronto for Cabrera and into a better lineup would look good for increasing his fantasy value. He'd be in a much more potent lineup and in a home environment that is more conducive to power hitting.
