Pirates Trade Gorkys Hernández For Marlins Gaby Sanchez

Miami Marlins NewsThe Pittsburgh Pirates made more trade news, trading outfielder Gorkys Hernández and a competitive balance pick to the Miami Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez.

Sanchez had fallen out of favor with the Marlins this season, hitting .202/.250/.306 in just under 200 plate appearances. Sanchez did it 19 home runs in 2010 and 2011.

Hernandez has a .281/.343/.377  career batting line.

Pirates general manager  Neal Huntington has made a number of moves, including trading for Wandy Rodriguez, Travis Snider and now Gaby Sanchez.

Sanchez could prove to be a perfect fit for the Pirates, who have been looking to add more offense to their lineup.

The Pirates are playing winning baseball for the first time in 19 seasons.

Meanwhile, the Marlins have gone a completely different direction than the Pirates, having traded Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to the Tigers, and Hanley Ramirez and Randy Choate to the Dodgers earlier.

The Marlins were also said to be shopping Josh Johnson, Carlos Lee, and Ricky Nolasco
