Pirates Acquire Denny Bautista

According to Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pirates acquired 27 year-old reliever Denny Bautista from the Tigers today for 23 year-old minor league reliever Kyle Pearson.

Bautista seems like a reasonable project for the Bucs to toss into the back of their bullpen.  Bautista averages 94-95 mph with his fastball, but five organizations have already given up on him.
