Rays acquire Minor League infielder Sutton

ST. PETERSBURG -- A day after the Braves traded him to the Pirates for cash, Minor League infielder Drew Sutton found himself traded to the Rays for a player to be named later or cash considerations on Monday.

A roster move is in the works and Sutton is expected to be in uniform for Monday night's game against the Blue Jays.

Sutton, 28, was hitting .270 in 38 games for Triple-A Gwinnett. He has played in 86 Major League games for the Reds, Indians and Red Sox, batting .258 with 24 RBIs in 159 at-bats. He signed a Minor League deal with the Braves last offseason after hitting .315 for Boston in limited time.

He played mostly second base for Gwinnett, appearing in 30 games there, seven at third base and one at first.
