Braves Trade Drew Sutton To Pirates For Ca$h

According to a tweet from a Pirates beat writer, the Braves have traded utility infielder Drew Sutton:

Sutton was hitting .270/.374/.372 at triple-A Gwinnett, showing his value as a good on-base guy. I find it strange that the Braves traded him, as he represents good utility infield depth stashed away in the minors. Perhaps this signifies the organization's confidence in Andrelton Simmons if something were to happen to Tyler Pastornicky or Jack Wilson. Or perhaps it shows that they don't view Sutton as a backup at short, with better options to backup the other infield spots in case of injury.

Not a big trade, but curious.
