Type A free agents Orlando Cabrera and Juan Cruz have struck deals with new teams, resulting in the creation of two additional supplemental first-round choices and the reassignment of two second-rounders.
Cruz, who spent last season with the Diamondbacks, signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Royals on Saturday. Arizona will receive a sandwich pick (currently No. 41) and Kansas City’s second-rounder (currently No. 59) as compensation.
Cabrera, late of the White Sox, agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Athletics on Monday. As a result, Chicago gets a supplemental first-rounder (currently No. 38) and Oakland’s second-rounder (currently No. 60).
