The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting that the Brewers have agreed to trade Matt LaPorta and prospects to the Indians for C.C. Sabathia and prospects.
According to the Tom Haudricourt, each team will swap two lower level prospects in addition to the big names involved, but Alcides Escobar and Mat Gamel will stay with Milwaukee. Sabathia would make his debut for the Brewers on Tuesday against the Rockies, and he'd get a boost pitching to pitchers in the NL. LaPorta, meanwhile, has a clear path to the majors and can be snagged by AL-only teams looking to add some power to their lineups.
