Pirates Acquire Jonathan Van Every

The Pirates reacquired outfielder Jonathan Van Every from the Red Sox for catcher Josue Peley, reports MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch.  The Sox had acquired Van Every from the Bucs on April 24th, but designated him for assignment ten days ago.

Van Every, 30, missed most of the '09 season due to knee surgery.  In '08 he hit .263/.360/.524 in 442 Triple A plate appearances.  He's played mostly center field in the minors.

Peley, 22, has struggled mightily with the bat in his minor league career, most recently with the Pirates' Low A club.  Peley was a 35th-round draft and follow pick in '06; the Pirates converted him from middle infield to catcher.
