Tony Sanchez promoted to AAA

2009 1st round pick (4th overall) Tony Sanchez has been promoted to AAA-Indianapolis from AA-Altoona.

Sanchez, who was repeating AA after struggling last season, was hitting .277/.370/.390 over 40 games for the Curve. He’s really been swinging a hot bat lately and his defense has reportedly been very good.

Last season, Sanchez hit just .241/.340/.318 for Altoona as his top prospect status took a huge hit, so this is nice to see because it would be great if Sanchez can turn out to be a ML catcher for the Pirates. It is a position that has lacked consistency over the past few years for the Bucs, so having a clear-cut guy to man the position for a long time would be pretty nice.
