Pirates trade for Keon Broxton

Gregory Shamus

The Pirates announce that they have acquired outfielder Keon Broxton from the Diamondbacks for a PTBNL. Broxton will join the Altoona Curve. This is purely a depth acquisition -- Broxton is a former third-round pick, but he hasn't hit  much as he's made his way through the minors. Last year, he posted a .231/.296/.359 line at Double-A Mobile, striking out 116 times in 334 at bats. He'll be 24 in May.
