A native of Venezuela who has suited up for Cleveland for all of his 914 career appearances since 2007, Cabrera racked up a .270 average, 82 homers, 211 doubles and drove in 430 runs while crossing home 475 times. He has also accumulated a .978 fielding percentage in that time.

Walters has participated in 40 games over the last two seasons with the Nats, batting .234 with three homers and six RBI. The 24-year-old Wyoming native and switch-hitter batted .300 with 15 homers and 48 RBI in 60 games with Triple-A Syracuse this year.
