Despite a last ditch effort from Sanchez’s camp to work out a contract extension, the Pirates are moving forward and will trade their All-Star second baseman today.
The Pirates remain engaged in talks with the Giants. Word from Minnesota is that Pittsburgh has not halted talks with the Twins to this point and they remain somewhat in the mix.
The ball is in San Francisco’s court right now.
There hasn’t been much discussions with the Cubs today relating to Sanchez.
