Pirates trade Drew Sutton to Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays have acquired infielder Drew Sutton from

Pittsburgh, just one day after the Pirates made a trade to get

him.

The Rays got the switch-hitter on Monday for a player to be

named or cash considerations.

Tampa Bay announced the deal before their game against

Toronto.

Pittsburgh sent cash to Atlanta on Sunday for Sutton. He had

been at Triple-A Gwinnett, hitting .270 and mostly playing third

base.

Sutton has spent parts of three seasons in the major leagues

with the Cincinnati Reds (2009-10), Cleveland Indians (2010) and

Boston Red Sox (2011).
