Minor league C McKenry dealt to Pirates
McKenry, 26, had been acquired by Boston from Colorado on March 29. With Triple-A Pawtucket this season, he hit .274 (26-for-95) with 5 doubles, 3 home runs, 12 RBIs, 10 runs and 14 walks in 29 games, all at catcher.
The right-handed hitter spent the 2010 season with Colorado’s Triple-A Colorado Springs club before making his major league debut in September, appearing in six games with the Rockies and making one start behind the plate.
The deal opens a spot on Boston's 40-man roster.
