Pirates | Tony Sanchez coming up

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 15:03:30 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates are expected to call up C Tony Sanchez from Triple-A Indianapolis Friday, June 21. SP Brandon Cumpton will be sent back to Indianapolis in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez already had a career-high nine homers at Indy this year, although he'll probably provide moderate power in the majors due to lackluster contact skills. His defense may be the best part of his game at this point. Russell Martin is still in the picture, too, so Sanchez is nothing more than a backup.

Pirates | Russell Martin out again

Mon, 13 May 2013 11:46:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Russell Martin (neck) is out of the lineup again Monday, May 13, but the team is hoping he can return Tuesday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Mike McKenry is getting all the playing time with Martin hurting. Tony Sanchez, the team's former first-round pick, was on call last weekend in case Martin needed to be placed on the disabled list. It looks like Martin will avoid a trip to the DL, so sit tight for now.
