Aaron Cunningham has sat out the Indians' past two intrasquad games due to a sore left hand.

The 25-year-old outfielder is expected to be back to full health and available for live action by the weekend. With Grady Sizemore out 8-12 weeks following back surgery, Cunningham could be in line for a decent amount of playing time over the 2012 season's first few months.

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.

Padres called up OF Aaron Cunningham from Triple-A Tucson.

Cunningham will make the start in right field Monday and bat sixth against left-hander Clayton Kershaw. The 25-year-old outfielder is 2-for-12 (.167) with the Padres this season and was batting .329/.398/.532 nine homers and 63 RBI over 384 plate appearances in the minors. 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.

Padres optioned OF Aaron Cunningham to Triple-A Tucson.

Cunningham went 2-for-12 in a little over a week with the big league Padres. He will head back to Triple-A and function as organizational outfield depth.

Padres recalled OF Aaron Cunningham from Triple-A Tucson.

Tue, May 31, 2011 11:02:00 PM

Padres optioned OF Aaron Cunningham to Triple-A Tucson.

It certainly wasn't because of his play on the field. Cunningham batted .326 with two homers, five doubles and eight RBI over 46 at-bats this spring. He suffered a high calf strain last week, which could be a significant reason why the Padres ultimately decided to carry Cedric Hunter as a reserve outfielder.
