Padres deal P Cunningham to Indians for OF Burns

The San Diego Padres acquired right- league pitcher Cory Burns from the Cleveland Indians for outfielder Aaron Cunningham.

The 25-year-old Cunningham was primarily a fourth outfielder and pinch-hitter during his two years with the Padres. He hit just .178 with three home runs and nine RBI in 52 games last season.

Burns, 24, had 35 saves and a 2.11 earned run average in 54 relief appearances with Double-A Akron last season.
