BY foxsports • July 28, 2013

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed outfielder Travis Snider on the 15-day disabled list with discomfort in his left big toe.

To take Snider's place on the 25-man roster, the Pirates have recalled catcher Tony Sanchez from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Sanchez was hitting .288 with 26 doubles, 10 home runs, 42 RBI and 35 runs scored. He also was the MVP in the Triple-A All-Star game on July 17.

This is Sanchez's second stint this year with the Pirates. He was recalled on June 21 and made his big league debut on June 23 at Anaheim, Calif., where he doubled in his first career at-bat off Joe Blanton.
