PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have traded minor league catcher Mike McKenry to the Pittsburgh Pirates for either a player to be named or cash.

The 26-year-old McKenry was hitting .274 with three home runs and 12 RBIs at Triple-A Pawtucket. The Red Sox got him from the Colorado organization on March 29.
