The Pittsburgh Pirates today traded infielder Drew Sutton to the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Sutton was acquired on Sunday from the Atlanta Brave for cash considerations. The 28-year-old was originally expected to report to Triple-A Indianapolis today. Sutton will report straight to the Tampa Bay Major League club in the trade.
Sutton, 28, played in 38 games for Triple-A Gwinnett this season where he hit .270 with 19 runs, 10 doubles, two triples and 15 RBI.
