Gaby Sanchez makes the best out of a rare start
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Gaby Sanchez made the best out of a rare start Friday night against the Reds, launching his seventh home run of the season in a 3-1 victory.

Sanchez took Mike Leake deep in the fifth inning for a solo home run. He finished 1 for 3 with a walk, run scored and an RBI. He is hitting .233 with seven homers and 33 RBI over 257 at-bats.

Gaby Sanchez homers for first time in three months
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

First baseman Gaby Sanchez didn't start Thursday for the Pirates, but he was pretty much their entire offense.

Sanchez arrived as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning in Detroit and promptly slugged a two-run homer that provided both of his team's runs. It was his first tater since May 15.

First base experiment starting for Pedro Alvarez
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Pirates will experiment with playing Pedro Alvarez at first base for the remainder of the season, manager Clint Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Saturday.

Alvarez has been taking grounders at first base, and has agreed to the experiment. He could see time at third base as well, though Gaby Sanchez has also begun taking grounders at third to increase the team's overall versatility.

Alvarez has never appeared at first base in his major-league career, but is making the move to first after racking up a career-high 23 throwing errors in just 105 games.

Pirates not ready to change infield alignment
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Despite the continued success of Josh Harrison, Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday the team is not considering moving Pedro Alvarez to first base to clear up regular at-bats for Harrison at third base. Huntington added he likes the duo of Ike Davis and Gaby Sanchez at first base.

"Ike, the power hasn't been maybe what it was in the past, but he gives us quality, professional at-bats and has played solid defense for us there," Huntington said. "If we can get Pedro back on track to 30-something home runs, being a productive major league hitter and playing adequate defense at third, that's a pretty good tandem to have on the corners."

Huntington said Harrison will continue to fill a utility role for Pittsburgh.

"To play a 162-game season this year, in this environment, it's about depth," Huntington said.

"We're working through all different scenarios, but right now what we feel very comfortable with is Josh bouncing around giving everybody rest."

Gaby Sanchez sparks comeback win for Pirates
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Gaby Sanchez had quite the performance off the bench during Monday's 5-3 comeback win against the Mets.

Sanchez cut the Pirates' deficit to one when he opened up the eighth inning with a pinch-hit home run off Scott Rice. Sanchez then gave Pittsburgh a 3-2 lead when he drove in Neil Walker with an RBI single in the ninth inning off Jose Valverde. Sanchez had two runs in the win.

Sanchez entered play Monday mired in a 7-for-31 slump in his previous 15 games (six starts) since a four-hit outing May 1 at Baltimore.
