• The team acquired right-hander Joel Cesar from the Pirates as the player to be named later in the trade for left-hander Austin Davis. Cesar has been added to the 60-man player pool. Cesar, 24, had a 3.02 ERA in 37 appearances (one start) between Class A Advanced Bradenton and Double-A Altoona last season.
