Bucs trade Craig Wilson to Mariners

Pirates/MLB Videos

By The Associated Press
Thursday, July 10, 2008
 

On a busy day in the Pirates' minor league system, the team traded former starting outfielder Craig Wilson to the Seattle Mariners for a player to be named on Thursday.

Wilson was hitting .230 with 10 homers and 27 RBIs at Triple-A Indianapolis.

The Pirates also acquired right-hander Dan Reichert and infielder-outfielder Ryan Mulhern from the Indians, also for a player to be named.

Reichert was 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA in eight games since joining Triple-A Buffalo, where Mulhern had a .250 average with seven homers and 26 RBIs in 58 games.

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington was a former Indians executive before taking the Pirates' job last year.

Also, the Pirates recalled right-hander Luis Munoz from Double-A Altoona, where he was recently sent after being demoted from Indianapolis.

Munoz takes the roster spot of former first-round draft pick John Van Benschoten, who was returned to Indianapolis for the second time this season after lasting 4 2-3 innings Wednesday night against Houston.
