The Pirates acquired first baseman Hunter Morris from the Brewers on Thursday in exchange for a player to be named later.

Morris' career has stalled since he was named Milwaukee's Minor League Player of the Year in 2012. Morris has a career .272/.321/.478/.799 slash line over five seasons (574 games) in the minors. Morris hit 20-plus home runs in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
