The San Francisco Giants just acquired Sanchez from the Pirates.
Leaving no ambiguity about their intention to chase a playoff spot this season, the Giants dealt heralded minor league pitcher Tim Alderson — seen by many as a cornerstone of the team’s future rotation — to the Pittsburgh Pirates for All-Star second baseman Freddy Sanchez. San Jose Mercury News.
Alderson was the number four prospect in a relatively decent Giant farm system. Yo. That’s a steep price to pay for a guy who is obviously declining, not great, and going to be massively overpaid next year.
