I do think that Gimenez’ signing could signal that Sanhez is gonna start at AA instead of AAA, but we’ll see.

Burnetts

Has an .837 OPS in the minors. They could do worse for AAA depth.

you see, each MLB team has a farm system with about 6-8 teams.  they are called minor league teams.  the minor leaguers are paid by the MLB team.  each minor league team HAS TO HAVE players.

see a pattern?

I guess they have to make up for the hopeful good news of possibly getting Burnett though.
Can’t have too much potentially good news for a Pirates fan, it always has to be balanced with some lousy news to keep things normal.
