Prospect Spotlight

A prep arm from California, Sauer went to the Yankees in 2017’s second round. He stayed back in Extended Spring Training to begin 2018 before reporting to Short-Season Staten Island in June, making 13 solid starts in the New York-Penn League. Sauer has a durable frame and the chance for three average pitches, profiling as a swingman or low-end #5 starter. He could take a jump with a strong showing in full-season ball.
