Pirates send Jonathan Sanchez to bullpen, Jeanmar Gomez to rotation

Dilip Vishwanat

Jeanmar Gomez will start in place of Jonathan Sanchez Wednesday, with Sanchez moving to the bullpen.

This is smart, in that it usually doesn't make much sense to give the other team a six-run head start before the game even begins. I continue to be unsure as to why Sanchez is on the roster at all, but maybe he has some fragment of upside out of the bullpen. I don't know; I'm really trying here.

The Pirates will soon have better options than Gomez in the rotation, obviously.
