Chris Stewart Reinstated From Disabled List, Tony Sanchez Sent to Indianapolis


The Pittsburgh Pirates have officially announced the roster move that we knew was coming with the announcement yesterday that Chris Stewart completed his rehab assignment. Stewart has been reinstated from the disabled list for tonight’s game and Tony Sanchez has been optioned to AAA Indianapolis. Our First Pitch article this morning dealt with this move and how it affects the catching in the Majors and at AAA.

Stewart caught two games for Altoona, then three games at Indianapolis, including back-to-back days on Tuesday and Wednesday. Sanchez went 3-for-8 at the plate in three games, collecting three singles. He was 1-for-3 throwing out base runners.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
