Pirates get Ludwick from the Padres

SAN DIEGO – One year to the day after landing outfielder Ryan Ludwick, the Padres on Sunday dealt their best run-producer to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Ludwick, who is hitting .238 with 11 home runs and a team-best 64 RBIs, was shipped to the Pirates for a player to be named later.

Ludwick, who turned 33 on July 13 and can play left and right field, will be a free agent following the season. He’s making $6.775 million this season.

Ludwick was in the original starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the Rockies but he was later scratched.
