Pirates Sign Jonathan Sanchez

Seems like a perfect match.

The Pirates announced that they signed left-hander Jonathan Sanchez to a minor league contract…

Sanchez spent the 2012 season with the Rockies and Royals, struggling with both teams. He posted a 8.07 ERA with more walks (53) than strikeouts (45) and a 39.7% ground ball rate in 64 2/3 total innings pitched. He also spent time on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis this past season.

However, the 30-year-old is not so far removed from the 2010 season that saw him post a 3.07 ERA with 205 strikeouts in 193 1/3 innings for the Giants.

Probably a decent buy low candidate for a minor league deal. He can't be any worse than he was last year, and if he still sucks, you can stash him in AAA. He's still youngish and he used to be able to miss bats.

I have not seen a player that seemed less interested in his performance since Kevin McReynolds though. I'm not one to buy into "rah rah" guys, and everyone expresses themselves differently, but man he seemed bored out there.

In fairness to Sanchez, I imagine it does get boring watching batter after batter reach base one way or another.
