Update 1:53 ET: According to LaVelle E. Neal of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Twins are also getting cash in the deal, but she doesn't mention how much.
Update 1:18 ET: According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today the Minnesota Twins have acquired A's shortstop Orlando Cabrera for prospect Tyler Ladendorf.

Cabrera signed a one-year $4 million contract this offseason, so he will be a free agent after the season, which means most likely this would be 2 month rental at worst for the Twins.
At 34, Cabrera isn't getting any younger, and likely wouldn't command a huge market as a free agent, which should give the Twins a chance to resign him in the offseason, should they choose to do so.
