Pirates Acquire Russ Canzler In Trade From Orioles

The Pirates acquired 1B/OF Russ Canzler from the Orioles this afternoon, in exchange for RHP Tim Alderson. Canzler is twenty-seven years old, and has limited big league experience, playing twenty-nine games between 2011-2012. The Pirates added him to the forty man roster, and optioned him to Indianapolis immediately. Canzler is a career .278 hitter in the minor leagues, but lacks power in his bat.
