Van Every traded back to Pirates for Peley

According to Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com, the Boston Red Sox have traded outfielder Jonathan Van Every to the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for catcher Josue Peley. Van Every was acquired from Pittsburgh earlier this season on April 24th for a player to be named later, but was designated for assignment on May 22nd when Jacoby Ellsbury returned briefly from the disabled list. In parts of three seasons with the Red Sox, Van Every hit .255/.327/.447 in 47 at-bats.

The 22-year-old Peley was originally drafted by the Pirates in the 35th round of the 2006 MLB draft and signed the next season as a draft-and-follow. In parts of three minor league seasons, Peley has hit .205/.257/.260 in 131 games, and was hitting .179/.222/.239 in 19 games with the West Virginia Power in the Class-A South Atlantic League this season. An infielder before he was drafted, Peley moved to catcher after signing with Pittsburgh.
