Pirates claimed utilityman Drew Sutton off waivers from the Rays on Sunday afternoon.
Itâ€™s been a season of travel thus far for Sutton, a 28-year-old former 15th-round pick. He signed a minor league contract with the Braves in November, was traded to the Pirates on May 20, then acquired by the Rays one day later for a player to be named later. And now heâ€™s back on Pittsburghâ€™s 40-man roster after being designated for assignment by Tampa Bay last week.
Sutton owns a weakÂ .261/.320/.391 career slash line in the major leagues. But heâ€™s seen action at first base, second base, third base, shortstop and both corner outfield spots over the course of his four-year MLB career.
