PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Phillies have traded right-hander Joaquin Benoit and cash to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league right-hander Seth McGarry.

Benoit was 1-4 with two saves and a 4.07 ERA in 44 appearances. The 40-year-old joins his eighth team in his 16 seasons in the majors.

McGarry had a 1.34 ERA in 31 games for Single-A Bradenton this season. He was selected in the eighth round of the 2015 draft from Florida Atlantic.

Philadelphia also traded veteran reliever Pat Neshek, starter Jeremy Hellickson and infielder/outfielder Howie Kendrick in the past week. Pittsburgh traded lefty reliever Tony Watson to the Dodgers earlier Monday.
