Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Indians want three or four prospects back in a trade for Asdrubal Cabrera.
Hoynes writes that the Indians had the framework of a deal in place to acquire a major league pitcher and two high-level prospects for Cabrera. However, the deal fell apart after the Indians asked for a third prospect as part of the return. While the team in question planned to change Cabrera's position, there should be no shortage of teams who view him as a shortstop. The 26-year-old is signed for $16.5 million through 2014 and can block trades to the Yankees, Red Sox, Tigers, Nationals, Giants, and Mets.
