PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates have acquired outfielder Ryan Ludwick from the San Diego Padres for a player to be named or cash considerations.

Ludwick was scratched from the starting lineup two minutes before the start of the Padres game Sunday against Colorado.

Ludwick batted .238 with a team-leading 11 home runs and 64 RBIs in 378 at-bats. The right-hander was acquired by San Diego from the St. Louis Cardinals at the non-waiver trading deadline last July 31 in a three-team deal with the Cleveland Indians.
