Pirates Designate Drew Sutton For Assignment


To clear room on the 40-man roster for newly acquired outfielder Travis Snider, the Pittsburgh Pirates have designated infielder Drew Sutton for assignment, the team announced today. In another related move, the team recalled right-handed reliever Daniel McCutchen.

The Pirates will have a ten-day window to find a taker for Sutton or they will likely lose him for nothing. The utility man has batted .254/.292/.393 in 130 plate appearances, but a team(s) interested would be willing to live with that given his defensive value.

The 29-year-old has played second base, both corner infield positions and both corner outfield positions this season alone. Any team looking for infield depth will be a suitor here and wouldn't need to give up anything of value.
