Jonathan Sanchez makes Pirate rotation

Here's what's up with the other half of the Melky Cabrera trade, mlb.com says. 

The Giants won't see the Pirates until June 11 so the Pirates may have had quite enough of Sanchez by then.  

Craig Calcaterra of Hardball Talk is not impressed  --

I want the Pirates to break the string of sub-.500 seasons because people in Pittsburgh are nice people and good baseball fans and it would mean a lot and be great story and all of that. But man, if Jonathan Sanchez makes your rotation, and if he’s not even the fifth starter, which he likely isn’t here, you have a pretty precipitous falloff afoot.
I feel like that no-hitter a few years ago is keeping him in the league way longer than he would have been otherwise. I also feel like the Pirates are gonna be shuffling around the back end of that rotation before the calendar hits May.
