Gaby Sanchez homers twice in suspended game
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Gaby Sanchez went 2 for 4 with two solo home runs in Monday's suspended game that ended in an 8-7 win over the Pirates Tuesday.

The home runs were the first of the season for Sanchez, who is 4 for 16 in limited action. Both of the right-handers home runs came off righties, and he could continue to see some action against right-handed pitchers moving forward.

Gaby Sanchez already sitting Monday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Gaby Sanchez will not get the start Monday against the Cubs.

Sanchez will be replaced in the starting lineup by Travis Ishikawa, who will hit seventh. Sanchez was expected to see a fair share of playing time this season, but has always been utilized as part of a platoon. While manager Clint Hurdle said the two players wouldn't be part of a "platoon by definition," his first lineup suggests otherwise.

Gaby Sanchez to see a lot of playing time at first
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Gaby Sanchez is expected to receive the bulk of the workload, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The team had been rumored to be seeking a first baseman throughout most of the offseason, but decided to stand pat with Sanchez. Manager Clint Hurdle said Sanchez and Travis Ishikawa will see time at the position, but added that it won't be a "platoon by definition."

Sanchez has never been a strong hitter against righties, but believes that will change with more consistent playing time. "I definitely think that the more you play, like any one of us, the more comfortable you’re going to feel," Sanchez said. "The more in tune and rhythm you’re going to be."

Sanchez hit .254/.361/.402 in 264 at-bats last year.

Gaby Sanchez scratched from Saturday game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Right knee soreness has Pirates first baseman Gaby Sanchez ruled out for the Saturday game against Tampa Bay. He is considered day-to-day.

Sanchez is seeking an opportunity to shed his platoon player tag and earn every-day consideration. But he has 14 home runs and 66 RBI in 563 at-bats in the last two seasons combined. Those are numbers far below what the Pirates would require from their starting first baseman.

Gaby Sanchez wants to be everyday player
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Garret Jones now with the Marlins, there's an opportunity for Gaby Sanchez to emerge with regular at-bats at first base for the Pirates. However, the Pirates are working outfielder Andrew Lambo at first base this spring, which means Sanchez could remain in a platoon role in 2014, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"If it turns out that we're back in that platoon, we're back in that platoon," Sanchez said. "I'll help the team do whatever I need to do. But of course my goal is to always be an everyday guy."

The problem for Sanchez is that he hasn't fared well against right-handed pitchers. In his career, he's a .242 hitter with a .387 slugging percentage against righties, while batting .300 with a .496 slugging percentage against lefties.

"He's a smart guy. He understood what he needed to do leaving and, as the winter's played out, the opportunity that's in front of him," manager Clint Hurdle said.
