PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay traded All-Star designated hitter Corey Dickerson to Pittsburgh on Thursday in exchange for relief pitcher Daniel Hudson, minor league infielder Tristan Gray and cash.

The 28-year-old Dickerson was designated for assignment last Saturday. He was the AL's starting DH in last summer's All-Star game, but struggled at the plate the second half of the season. The trade lets the Rays shed Dickerson's $5.95 million salary.

Hudson is a 30-year-old right-hander who went 2-7 with a 4.38 ERA in a career-high 71 appearances in 2017. He's 37-30 with a 3.98 career ERA over eight seasons with the Pirates, Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks.
