I was a bit worried by the last PP report that had him losing quite a bit of velo in the middle innings, as that was a big knock against him prior to this year.

As for Sanchez, does he do a better job behind the plate than McFort? If so, that IS high praise, indeed.

I agree that the Pirates should use quality prospects to close games. No reason not to, and it prepares them for pressure situations they will face later, hopefully in the big leagues. I am also a bit dissapointed that they have such strict innings limits. I think there are several organizations that are moving toward extending these younger arms so they are prepared to go 7-9 innings at the big league level. Finally, it would be nice to see some movement of players for the last couple of weeks of the season to get their feet wet for the following year.
