Freddy Sanchez traded to Giants for Tim Alderson

The Pirates have traded Freddy Sanchez to the Giants for Double-A pitcher Tim Alderson.  Alderson, a first round draft pick in 2007, is 20-years-old and performing well in Double-A.  He is a very good prospect that projects as a top of the rotation starter.  The Pirates focused on quality as opposed to quantity in this deal, and received a nice return for Freddy.  A very impressive day for Neal Huntington.
