The Pittsburgh Pirates acquired left-hander Dillon Peters from the Los Angeles Angels on Monday in exchange for cash considerations and assigned him to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Peters, 28, was designated for assignment last Wednesday by the Angels after going 2-2 with a 4.35 ERA in eight starts at Triple-A Salt Lake this season.

He is 7-8 with a 5.83 ERA in 31 career games (24 starts) with the Miami Marlins (2017-18) and Angels (2019-20).

To make room on the 40-man roster, Pittsburgh designated right-hander Kyle Crick for assignment.

Crick, 28, went 1-1 with a 4.44 ERA in 27 relief appearances this season with the Pirates.

He is 7-11 with two saves and a 3.51 ERA in 180 career games (no starts) with the San Francisco Giants and Pirates.

Pittsburgh acquired Crick and outfielder Bryan Reynolds in the January 2018 trade that sent former MVP Andrew McCutchen to the Giants.
