The Cleveland Indians have acquired right fielder Kosuke Fukudome and cash from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for minor league right fielder Abner Abreau and minor league right-hander Carlton Smith. The Cubs will pay all but $775,000 of the roughly $4.65 million owed to Fukudome for the balance of the season.
