Sanchez began last season with the Pirates, but was released after posting an 11.85 ERA over four starts and a relief appearance. He moved on to pitch for the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque.

by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com

Jonathan Sanchez might be skipped Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2013) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Sunday he's still mulling his starting-pitcher options for Wednesday's game at Milwaukee, which is Jonathan Sanchez's turn in the rotation. Sanchez is appealing a six-game suspension for hitting the Cardinals' Allen Craig with a pitch Friday, but he might be skipped regardless because of his poor performance (0-3, 12.71 ERA), according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Hurdle said Francisco Liriano, who is rehabbing an arm injury in the minors, is not an option to start Wednesday. Hurdle said no final decision has been made, but Jeanmar Gomez might be an option to make a spot start.


Jonathan Sanchez banned six games


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2013) Pirates pitcher Jonathan Sanchez was suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for hitting the Cardinals' Allen Craig with a pitch Friday. He is appealing the suspension, which would cost him a turn in the rotation.

Sanchez allowed back-to-back homers and a single to open Friday's game before plunking Craig in the helmet near his ear and earning an ejection. He had thrown just 17 pitches before the early departure.


MLB mulling suspension for Jonathan Sanchez


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2013) Though he insisted he did not intentionally throw at the Cardinals' Allen Craig, Pirates pitcher Jonathan Sanchez could be hit with a suspension by Major League Baseball, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Sanchez was ejected during the first inning of Friday's game after hitting Craig in the helmet with a pitch.

"In these cases, there's a protocol that's followed," manager Clint Hurdle, who was also tossed, said Saturday. "That's one of the topics that's discussed."


Jonathan Sanchez still in rotation, for now


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2013) Despite allowing three runs without recording an out during his latest outing Friday night against the Cardinals, starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez's place in the starting rotation appears to be safe.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said the left-hander would throw a bullpen session Saturday after tossing just 17 pitches in his brief outing Friday night.

"Too soon," Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review when asked if Sanchez would remain in the rotation moving forward.

Sanchez was ejected in the first inning of the 9-1 loss to St. Louis after hitting Allen Craig in the helmet following back-to-back home runs by Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran.

Sanchez, who saw his ERA balloon up to 12.71 following his latest outing, is slated to make his next start Wednesday at Milwaukee.

Jonathan Sanchez gets the boot


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2013) Pirates starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez was ejected from his start Friday night at St. Louis after hitting Allen Craig in the helmet during the first inning.

Sanchez allowed the first three batters he faced to reach base, including Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran, who took the left-hander deep for solo home runs. Matt Holliday followed with a single, which brought Craig to the plate.

Sanchez hit Craig on the head with his first offering of the at-bat, resulting in an immediate ejection from Tim Timmons.

He allowed two runs on three hits without recording an out during his brief outing, increasing his ERA to 12.71 in the process.

The last time a Pirates starting pitcher has failed to record an out in game was Ryan Vogelsong versus the Reds on Sept. 24, 2004, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Jonathan Sanchez remaining in rotation


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2013) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle told MLB.com on Monday that Jonathan Sanchez will remain in the rotation despite his early struggles.

Sanchez has gone 0-2 with an 11.12 ERA through three starts and lasted just three innings in his previous outing. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Cardinals.

"So [Sanchez] will have another opportunity to get some side work in, and then I'm of the opinion right now that we'll move on right in sequence with the rotation," Hurdle said, adding that he still needed to discuss the situation with general manager Neal Huntington.

Jonathan Sanchez stuck on 12.96 ERA


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(12:20 am ET) Pirates starter Jonathan Sanchez had his outing against the Cardinals Tuesday night washed out due to rain.

The storm hit at the end of the second inning with Pittsburgh leading 4-2, and the game was called after a delay of 1 hour, 24 minutes.

The left-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits over his two innings of work. He also struck out three and walked one, but none of the stats will count.

Sanchez (0-2) still has a 12.96 ERA through two starts.

His next outing is scheduled for Sunday against the Braves.

Jonathan Sanchez blasted by D-Backs


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2013) Pirates starter Jonathan Sanchez took his second straight loss to begin the year on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. He allowed nine runs on eight hits with four walks over 3 1/3 innings in the 10-2 defeat.

Sanchez was tagged with a three-spot in the first before surrendering a three-run homer to A.J. Pollock the following frame. Then in the fourth, Pollock led off the inning with a solo shot off the left-hander and Sanchez was pulled after putting two more men on. The bullpen allowed both inherited runners to score.

Sanchez, who threw 93 pitches, also struck out two.

His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Cardinals. In one start against St. Louis last season, he gave up six runs over 5 2/3 innings in the no-decision.


Jonathan Sanchez surprises with solid outing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2013) Pirates starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez was surprisingly effective in his first start of the season Friday against the Dodgers.

Sanchez tossed five solid innings and allowed just three runs, on six hits and just one walk. Sanchez, who walked 53 batters in just 64 2/3 innings a year ago, threw 54 of his 88 pitches for strikes. Despite the solid outing, Sanchez was unable to get out of the sixth inning and earned the loss in a 3-0 game. Sanchez struck out four batters in the outing.

Sanchez is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, a team that tagged him for five earned runs in four innings a year ago.  


Jonathan Sanchez rediscovers rhythm as starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2013) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said the mental adjustments starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez made during the spring allowed him to land a spot in the team's rotation, according to MLB.com.

"He was out there pitching," Hurdle said, "after being too cerebral and mechanical the first couple times. His rhythm and execution improved."

Sanchez began the spring working in relief before getting a chance to start games. He said the shift to the rotation was key.

"It was like old times," Sanchez said. "I was just getting ahead, throwing strike one and going from there. Fixed little things, made little adjustments. Not having been in the 'pen for a long time, I just felt more comfortable starting games. That's where I belong. Once I started, everything clicked, the way I used to be. I started having success."

Sanchez will make his season debut Friday at L.A. Dodgers. He will be opposing Zack Greinke.


Pirates add Jonathan Sanchez to roster


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2013) The Pirates purchased the contract of pitcher Jonathan Sanchez from Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.

Sanchez, who was named the team's No. 4 starter, has a 5.50 ERA in seven Grapefruit League outings.

Jonathan Sanchez improves strikeout total


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) Pirates starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez took the mound during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against Toronto and yielded four runs and seven hits over 4 2/3 innings. Sanchez, who was named the team's No. 4 starter before the game, struck out six and walked one. He has a 5.50 ERA with 16 strikeouts in seven appearances this spring.

Pirates see change in Jonathan Sanchez


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) After riding a wave of inconsistency most of his career, veteran pitcher Jonathan Sanchez seemed to hit the bottom last season. The left-hander bounced between Kansas City and Colorado, making a combined 15 starts, and finished with a 8.07 ERA and more walks (53) than strikeouts (45) for the first time in his wild career. Still, the Pirates recognized enough promise in the 30-year-old to make him the fourth starter in the rotation to begin the season.

"In spring training, he's looked much closer to the guy he was in 2011 and 2010 than the guy who struggled in 2012," general manager Neal Huntington told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "Jonathan's last two starts have been very encouraging. The off-speed pitches have been very effective and the fastball command has been good."

Sanchez went 13-9 -- his only season with double-digits in wins -- and amassed a career-high 205 strikeouts over 34 games (33 starts) for the Giants during the 2010 season. However, he also walked 96 batters in 193 1/3 innings.


Jonathan Sanchez not a promising arm


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) Pirates starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez might not have had the worst spring of all-time, which is why he landed a spot in the team's rotation, but that doesn't mean Fantasy owners need to be buying into the left-handed hurler.

I point out that Sanchez still has control problems, walking nine batters in 13 1/3 innings, and he's really just a stopgap option until Francisco Liriano and Charlie Morton are ready to come off the disabled list. Shoot, he might only be a stopgap option until prospect Gerrit Cole is ready to be promoted.

The days of waiting for Sanchez to fill his full potential are a distant memory. There's more downside than upside for Fantasy owners.


Pirates add Jonathan Sanchez to rotation


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) After being discarded by Colorado in the offseason, veteran pitcher Jonathan Sanchez has parlayed a minor-league deal into the fourth spot in the Pirates' starting rotation. Sanchez was awarded the position Tuesday over a host of other competitors despite being limited by poor command this spring, which has become his trademark.

The left-hander has posted a 4.73 ERA with 10 strikeouts and nine walks over six Grapefruit League games (13 1/3 innings).
