Pirates DFA Jonathan Sanchez

Posted by Scott Wuerz on April 30, 2013 

The Cardinals won't have Jonathan Sanchez to kick around anymore in their race for the National League Central Division crown.

The hurler, who St. Louisans last saw when he gave up home runs to Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran to lead off a game against the Pirates before surrendering a single to Matt Holliday and then going head hunting against Allen Craig, has been designated for assignment by Pittsburgh.

Sanchez was 0-3 with an 11.85 ERA in five starts for the Pirates.
