Pirates Acquire Carlos Paulino For Jim Negrych

The Pirates traded infielder Jim Negrych to the Marlins for catcher Carlos Paulino, tweets MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch.

Negrych, 26, hit .283/.369/.384 in 457 plate appearances at Double and Triple-A last year, playing second base, third base, and left field.  He last appeared in a Baseball America Handbook two years ago, ranking 24th among Pirates prospects after being named the team's minor league player of the year.  His main ability is to hit for average, and he profiles as a utilityman if he reaches the Majors.

Paulino, 21, hit .184/.214/.234 in 216 plate appearances in Low-A last year.  He's never appeared on a BA Marlins top 30 prospects list.
