Indians acquired OF Aaron Cunningham from the Padres for RHP Cory Burns.

Cunningham, who was acquired from the Athletics in the Kevin Kouzmanoff deal, spent most of the 2011 season with Triple-A Tucson. The former top prospect has a lousy .231/.290/.375 batting line over 392 plate appearances in the big leagues, but bats from the right side and can play all three outfield positions. He could be a useful bench player for the Tribe.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that the Indians have acquired outfielder Aaron Cunningham from the Padres in exchange for relief prospect Cory Burns.

Cunningham spent most of the 2011 season at Triple-A and raked there, batting .329/.398/.532 with nine homers over 384 plate appearances. He hit only .178/.257/.367 over 101 plate appearances in his time with the Padres. The 25-year-old should get some playing time against left-handed pitching. Burns was not ranked by Baseball America among the Indians' top-30 prospects coming into the season, but he boasts a 2.02 ERA and 11.5 K/9 rate over 130 career minor league games. He finished 2011 at Double-A.

The Padres' outfield is in a state of flux at the moment, so the former top prospect could grab semi-regular playing time if he gets off to a hot start.
