The Pittsburgh Pirates traded infielder Hoy Park to the Boston Red Sox for a minor league pitcher on Wednesday night, a day after designating him for assignment.
The Pirates received Inmer Lobo, an 18-year-old left-hander who pitched in the rookie-level Dominican Summer League this year. Lobo was 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in five starts, striking out 28 in 22 innings and walking just two.
Park played in 23 games for the Pirates in 2022 and hit .216/.276/.373 with two home runs and one stolen base. He made eight starts at second base, four at third base, three at shortstop and two in right field.
Park, 26, was DFA’d when the Pirates claimed first baseman Lewin Diaz off waivers from the Miami Marlins.
