Pittsburgh Pirates Wiretap
Jonathan Sanchez has cleared waivers and been unconditionally released by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
In five appearances (four starts), Sanchez has a 11.85 ERA and 15 strikeouts in more than 13 innings. He has allowed seven home runs and walked eight batters.
Stephen Strasburg is expected to make his next start after experiencing no pain during a bullpen session Wednesday before the Nationals played the Braves.
"He had a great bullpen," Johnson said. "Didn't have any discomfort."
