YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – For the second time in as many days, the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets made a trade.
On Saturday, the Bucs dealt catcher Michael Perez to the Mets in exchange for cash considerations.
The 29-year-old was designated for assignment on Friday. The lefty hit .150 with six home runs and 11 RBIs in 39 games.
Earlier this year, Perez had a three home run game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
On Friday, Pittsburgh sent Daniel Vogelbach to the Mets for Colin Holderman.
