The Pirates have acquired 28-year old utility infielder Drew Sutton from Atlanta for cash. With both Chase d’Arnaud and Jordy Mercer in AAA, he will probably serve as a backup unless one of those two players are called upon to join the ML club.

In 38 games for AAA-Gwinnett, Sutton was hitting .270/.374/.372 in 137 AB. He has played 86 career games in the majors between Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Boston hitting .258/.322/.403 with three home runs.
