Kris Watts Traded to Washington

The Pittsburgh Pirates traded catcher Kris Watts to the Washington Nationals for cash considerations on Thursday.

Watts, 27, appeared in nine games for Triple-A Indianapolis this season where he hit for a .250/.357/.292 line over 24 at-bats. He was drafted by the Pirates in 2006 and split the 2011 season at Double-A Altoona and Indy.

After promoting catching prospect Tony Sanchez to Triple-A last week, the Indians had a log jam behind the plate. The club already had Eric Fryer and Jose Morales and Watts became expendable.
