SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Pirates on Thursday night acquired infielder/outfielder Edward Salcedo from Atlanta in exchange for right-hander Bryton Trepagnier, in a purely Minor League transaction.
Salcedo, 23, spent most of the 2014 season with Triple-A Gwinnett, batting .212 with moderate power (21 doubles and 10 homers in 364 at-bats). The Dominican native mirrors the versatility of every player added to the organization this winter by the Bucs, having seen considerable action at third, short and in right field during five Minor League seasons.
Salcedo has not been added to the list of non-roster invitees to the Major League camp in Spring Training.
Trepagnier posted a 2.53 ERA in 38 appearances in 2014 for Class A Advanced Bradenton. He was taken in the 41st round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft.
