August 9th Minor Moves: Miguel Perez, Robbie Kilcrease

Published:

Two minor league moves today:

-The Pirates traded catcher Miguel Perez to the Washington Nationals, according to Adam Kilgore.  They had acquired Perez from the Nationals early in the year when they were experiencing a lack of upper level catching options.  Now that Jason Jaramillo is healthy, and Eric Fryer is back in AAA, there is no need for Perez.

-Robbie Kilcrease has been promoted from the GCL to State College.  The left hander was an undrafted free agent this year, and put up a 3.75 ERA in 24 innings in the GCL, with a 6.8 K/9 and a 2.6 BB/9.  State College is a more appropriate assignment for him, as he came from the college ranks and is 22 years old.
