Tony Sanchez blames himself for Edinson Volquez's poor start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Volquez gave up six earned runs in just 2 2/3 innings against the Orioles. Sanchez said it was the first time he had ever caught Volquez, and could tell the pitcher was uncomfortable for most of the start. It's Volquez's first season with the club, and he'll have to get on track with his catchers. Russell Martin is expected to be the team's primary catcher during the regular season.


Pirates option Jeff Locke, Tony Sanchez to Double-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) The Pirates optioned pitcher Jeff Locke and catcher Tony Sanchez to Double-A Altoona Wednesday. Locke was scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Cardinals, but the team will give him a little time off instead.

"This move allows us to give Jeff Locke a short break," general manager Neal Huntington said in a statement.  "It also allows Tony Sanchez to get back to the Major Leagues as soon as the rules permit us to do so. In addition, this gives us the opportunity to maintain a full roster until both Jeff and Tony can return to the club on September 3. That is when the Double-A season is over and when the club intends to recall both players."

Locke, who hasn't won a game since July 21, is 0-2 with a 7.02 ERA since picking up his last win. Sanchez has hit .220/.267/.341 with one home run and four RBI in 41 at-bats.

Sanchez has hit .288/.368/.504 with 10 home runs and 42 RBI in 260 at-bats for Triple-A Indianapolis.


Pirates looking for depth at catcher


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2013) Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday the team is pleased with how rookie backup catcher Tony Sanchez has performed, but the team will look to add another catcher, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Huntington said the team is expected to carry three catchers when rosters expand in September.

"We're looking for different ways to upgrade the club," said Huntington, who indicated the organization might search for a catcher it could send to Triple-A Indianapolis for depth.

'Throwing challenges' is last hurdle for Tony Sanchez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2013) While Pirates catcher prospect Tony Sanchez is having a resurgent year offensively for Triple-A Indianapolis, Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday the former top 100 prospect has to clean up his defense before he's promoted to the majors for an extended stay.

"Tony's last box to check off is to work through his throwing challenges," Huntington said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.


Tony Sanchez takes 'long road' back to success


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2013) Pirates catcher prospect Tony Sanchez belted a three-run homer off Astros prospect Jarred Cosart, helping the International League All-Stars to a 4-3 win over the Pacific Coast All-Stars in Wednesday's Triple-A All-Star game. 

Sanchez, who was considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America in 2010 and 2011, is having a resurgence for Triple-A Indianapolis. He's batting .282 with a .502 slugging percentage, .866 OPS, nine home runs, 26 doubles and 40 RBI in 70 games.

"It's been a long road these last few years," Sanchez said to MLB.com. "Just to be an All-Star really is a testament to the offseason."

Though, Sanchez -- who worked on improving his at-bats in the offseason -- will have to bide his time in the minors with veteran Russell Martin ahead of him.

"They're playing really well," Sanchez said. "I've caught them all, but still, I know it's hard to throw another catcher out there with a No. 1 staff. To go in there and expect to be the top catcher is unrealistic."
