Pirates Swing Minor Trade With Blue Jays; Acquire RHP Jeremy Beasley



Jeremy Beasley, pittsburgh pirates

The trade deadline was ultimately a quiet day for the Pittsburgh Pirates, but the club swung a minor trade at the buzzer. The Bucs announced that they acquired right-hander Jeremey Beasley from the Toronto Blue Jays for cash considerations.

The Pirates have optioned Beasley to Triple-A Indianapolis.

The 26-year-old has made nine appearances with the Blue Jays this season, posting a 4.80 ERA in 15 innings out of the big league bullpen.

The bulk of his season has come in Triple-A, where the right-hander posted a 2-1 record with a 1.89 ERA  and 43 strikeouts in 38 innings across 19 appearances (three starts). He’s limited opposing batters to a .153 batting average against.

Beasley was originally selected by the Los Angeles Angels in the 30th round in the 2017 draft.

The move comes a day after the Bucs shipped pitchers Jose Quintana and Chris Stratton to the St. Louis Cardinals for two young players.

With the addition, the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 40-man roster is now full.
