RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sanchez spent most of the 2012 season working as a starter at Low-A Lansing, where lapses with control (5.1 BB/9) offset an impressive ability to miss bats (9.7 K/9) and record a large number of outs on the ground (2.22 G/F). If his secondary pitches don't develop as expected, Sanchez possesses a big enough fastball to succeed with a transition toward a late-inning relief role. Still just 20 years old, the Jays can afford to give Sanchez plenty of time to hone his command in the lower levels of the minors, and it's possible that he will return to the Midwest League to start 2013 before getting his first exposure to High-A.
The tall, lanky (6'4", 190) righty flashes plus-velocity with an easy delivery and many scouts believe he has a very high upside. He needs to wok on his control but the 18-year old held his own in 2011, striking out 56 batters in 54.1 innings between Rookie and Low-A.
