PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan)- The start of the 2013 season is just more than a week away for the Pittsburgh Pirates and there a few positions not quite set in stone.

One of those positions is first base, where both Gaby Sanchez and Garrett Jones are the likely candidates. Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington told Bob Pompeani that Sanchez has had a good spring.

“He’s come into camp in great shape, he’s giving us consistent quality at-bats, obviously he’s a great defender there,” Huntington said.

With Jones’ ability to play the outfield, the club is still working on determining what the best option is. But Huntington added that the great thing about baseball is that nothing is set in absolute stone.

The Pirates’ rotation is another area that isn’t set in stone. Jonathan Sanchez, a free agent signing, is in the mix for what is likely one open spot.

“Jonathan has thrown the ball really well his last few outings,” Huntington said.

In 2010, Sanchez won 13 games for the San Francisco Giants.

“He could definitely be an addition to our club if we get the guy that was out there in 2010 and 2011,” Huntington said.
