Well, It's been made official! Just as I wrote about this morning, The Twins have landed Orlando Cabrera. In exchange for Cabrera, the A's Receive minor league shortstop Tyler Ladendorf from the Twins. The teams had been in discussion since last week about this possible trade. Ladendorf has been playing at the Class A level for the Twins with their Beloit team. He was batting .233 in 15 games. Ladendorf has spent a majority of the season with Rookie Ball Elizabethton where he batted .410 with 4 Home Runs and 17 RBIs.
