2014

Sanchez was the top pitching prospect in Venezuela, and possibly all of Latin America, when he signed with the Mariners in 2011 at age 16. A year later, he debuted at short-season Everett. At 18, he threw a no-hitter at Low-A Clinton. At 6-0, 255, Sanchez has been described as a "bull," a "tank" and a "bowling ball." No matter the adjective, it's clear Sanchez can pitch. He has excellent control, and his fastball can touch the mid-90s. Better command of his fastball and continued development of his slurve and changeup should help his strikeout rate improve as he advances. It shouldn't take long before Sanchez is knocking on the door.
