Heim has been traded to Tampa Bay for Steve Pearce, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Despite a .344 slugging percentage at High-A Fredrick, Heim has swatted seven homers in 329 plate appearances this season. The switch-hitting catcher is just 21 years old, so it's possible that he'll repeat High-A to begin 2017 if he doesn't show improvement at the plate during the final month-plus of the minor league season.
