Tony Sanchez has been getting a lot of buzz lately, with his five game hitting streak. With the Pittsburgh Pirates catching woes, many of you have been asking about the Buccos first rounder.

Sanchez is starting to heat up for AA Altoona as he has seven hits (with three doubles) in his last 22 at-bats during his hitting streak.  Last night after Curve teammate Brock Holt homered, Sanchez stepped into the box and was promptly beaned in the left leg.   Ouch.

The Pirates catcher of the future has been getting some twitter love lately. Here are some of the highlights.
