The Chicago White Sox traded outfielder Melky Cabrera to the Royals on Sunday for two prospects. The Royals sent right-hander A.J. Puckett and left-hander Andre Davis from Kansas City.
The Royals also received cash considerations in the deal. Cabrera is making $15 million this year and will become a free agent after the season. Cabrera, 32, is hitting .295 with 13 home runs and 56 RBIs in 98 games (428 plate appearances).
“I will go there [and] try to help the team win games,” Cabrera said. “They acquired me for a reason. I hope to help them.”
