The Pirates have claimed infielder Dean Anna off of waivers from the Yankees, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. The Yankees had designated Anna for assignment on Thursday.
Anna, 27, made his major league debut on April 4 and stuck with the Yankees through April 22 before he was optioned back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. In 25 plate appearances, Anna posted a .518 OPS with one home run and three runs batted in. His numbers are similarly underwhelming at Triple-A this season, but he performed well last season as part of the Padres organization, posting an .892 OPS with a league-leading .331 average.
