Giants reportedly targeting Indians' Mike Aviles, Asdrubal Cabrera

Sunday July 20th, 2014

The Giants are targeting Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and utilityman Mike Aviles, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports tweeted Saturday. 

The 28-year-old Cabrera -- an All-Star in 2011 and '12 -- is due $10 million this season before he becomes a free agent. He's .250/.310/.399 with nine homers and 38 RBI. A move to San Francisco would likely mean a change to second base, as the Giants already have Brandon Crawford.

The 33-year-old Aviles, is making less this year -- $3 million -- and has a $3.5 million option the Indians can pick up for 2015 with a $250,000 buyout. 

Cleveland is second behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central while the Giants sit atop the NL West.
