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.

Yankees' Drury hopes new swing pays off

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) After watching J.D. Martinez transform into one of baseball's most powerful sluggers, Brandon Drury decided his career could lift off with some of that long-ball technique.

So Drury commuted from his Las Vegas home to Southern California a half-dozen times during the offseason to work with the coaches who rebuilt the swings of Martinez and Chris Taylor. Launch angle is baseball's in vogue buzzword, and Drury wants some buzz.
