Prospect Spotlight

Sanchez played all last season as a 20-year-old, posting a strong .301/.331/.462 line in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League and reaching Double-A by year’s end. A lanky 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, his long and athletic frame provides plenty of natural leverage for power. He doesn’t walk much and has movement in the swing that seems prone to strikeouts, but above-average barrel-feel has bailed out his swing-happy approach to date. Sanchez will need to prove his low-walk, high-average outputs translate to upper-minors competition, and presuming he’s able to get more selective, the ceiling is an above-average regular in RF.
