The Pittsburgh Pirates designated infielder Michael Chavis and outfielder Greg Allen for assignment on Monday.

The moves come a day after the Pirates claimed infielder/outfielder Miguel Andujar off waivers from the New York Yankees. Pittsburgh added Andujar to the active roster on Monday.

Chavis, 27, was batting .229 with 14 home runs and 49 RBIs in 129 games this season. He’s a career .237 hitter with 40 home runs.

Allen, 29, was batting .186 with 17 runs and eight stolen bases in 46 games. He’s a career .232 hitter.

The Pirates also selected catcher Jose Godoy from Triple-A Indianapolis. He appeared in five games for Pittsburgh last month — going 0-for-7 with one RBI — after the club signed him off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.
