Pirates Trade Drew Sutton to the Tampa Bay Rays


The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded the recently acquired Drew Sutton to the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named.   He was a Pittsburgh Pirate in theory only, the infielder will join the Rays big league club tonight.  Sutton helps the Rays while Evan Longoria and Brandon Allen recover from injuries.

The Bucs picked up Sutton yesterday for cash considerations.  The 28-year old Sutton has a .258/.322/.403 batting line line in 178 MLB plate appearances.

Looking at the Rays system for the corresponding player will be interesting for Bucs fans to ponder over.     Who would you like to see?
