Pirates designated INF-OF Drew Sutton for assignment.

Sutton batted .254/.292/.393 over 130 plate appearances for the Rays and Pirates this year. Sutton, who signed a minor league deal with Atlanta in November, was traded to the Pirates in May, swapped to the Rays a day later, DFA'd by Tampa in June and subsequently claimed by Pittsburgh. The switch-hitter will likely be on the move to a new organization in the next few days.

Drew Sutton walked off the Pirates Tuesday with a solo blast in the bottom of the ninth against the Astros' Wesley Wright.

Sutton also had a couple singles and scored a run earlier in the game. He's been a pleasant surprise since being re-acquired by the Pirates last month, batting .407 with a homer and four RBI over eight games. He should continue to see regular time in right field with Jose Tabata in the minors and makes for a worthwhile NL-only play.
