PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — The Pittsburgh Pirates traded with Kansas City for infielder Yamaico Navarro Wednesday evening.

In turn, the Pirates traded away minor league pitcher Brooks Pounders and infielder Diego Goris.

Navarro, 24, played in 36 major league games with the Boston Red Sox and six with the Royals last season. He hit .206 in the big leagues and .264 with seven home runs in the minors.

The Pirates are expected to make a move with their 40-man roster Thursday to compensate for the trade.
