Andino dealt to Pirates in Minor League deal

BOSTON -- Veteran infielder Robert Andino was traded by the Mariners to the Pirates on Wednesday in a Minor League deal for a player to be named or cash.

Andino, 29, was playing for the Mariners' Triple-A Tacoma club after being acquired from the Orioles last offseason for outfielder Trayvon Robinson.

Andino was batting .229 with three home runs and 12 RBIs in 44 games for Tacoma after being outrighted by the Mariners on May 27. He began the season with Seattle and hit .184 in 29 games before being designated for assignment on May 24.

Andino has eight seasons of Major League experience with the Marlins and Orioles. The 2002 second-round Draft pick started at second base for Baltimore for much of the 2011 and '12 seasons and is a career .232 hitter in 468 games.
