Jonathan Sanchez back with the Giants

Jonathan Sanchez is back with the Giants after his Puerto Rico team was not
sanchezWBC.jpgable to survive the second round. He thought he was going to throw a little more than what he did for team Puerto Rico. He did pitch in 6 2/3 innings for team Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic. Once Sanchez made it back to the Giants training camp. He immediately threw a bullpen session on Thursday for the Giants and he will start for the Giants on Sunday against the Brewers. The 26 year old Sanchez has a live arm and I’m sure he will do a great job for the Giants in the 5th spot of the rotation. Giants were considering trading Sanchez for a bat this off-season, but no moves were made.

    Now, aint it good to get those players back to camp from the WBC?! The Mets are still missing four or five guys, but they just got back 11. Mad nice. Sanchez’s .518 ERA looks like it can damage your rotation, but, for being the fifth starter, I can’t really complain with Livan Hernandez in the lead for our fifth spot in the rotation.

    Hey Donnie,

    Sanchez is actually better than what his era shows. He’s a good up and coming pitcher. The Giants had a chance to trade him for a bat this offseason but didn’t want to trade him cause they really like him as a pitcher. He’s a #5 starter for now but will move up to a higher spot in the rotation by next season. I’m sure you will start to hear more about him soon.
