John Perrotto isn't so sure:
Freddy Sanchez has not played in three weeks because of a sprained right knee. Though the Pirates are painting an optimistic picture of the reigning NL batting champion being ready for the April 2 opener, he isn't so optimistic.If Freddy's not ready, at least Jason Bay could hit third.
"It's just the same old same old," Sanchez said. "I'm getting frustrated not being out there."
