Pirates get minor-league infielder Kervin Pichardo from Padres in exchange for LHP Jackson Wolf

The Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday traded left-handed pitcher Jackson Wolf, who was designated for assignment on March 28, to the San Diego Padres for minor-league infielder Kervin Pichardo.

The Pittsburgh Pirates traded left-handed pitcher Jackson Wolf to the San Diego Padres for minor-league infielder Kervin Pichardo. Wolf had been designated for assignment on March 28.

Last year, 22-year-old Pichardo played on the Padres’ High-A and Double-A farm teams, hitting .257 (67 for 261) with 10 home runs, eight doubles, and 43 RBIs.

His on-base percentage was .370, and he achieved an OPS of .772 in a total of 85 games.

Pichardo, now assigned to Double-A Altoona, has participated in 239 minor-league games and holds a career slash line of .226/.351/.360.

Wolf, obtained from San Diego last season in a trade involving pitcher Rich Hill and first baseman Ji-Man Choi, was reassigned to Altoona by the Pirates in early March after being one of the club’s first cuts in spring training.

Last year, 24-year-old Wolf made one start for San Diego and eight for the Curve, where he posted a 0-4 record with a 4.25 ERA in 36 innings.
