Sixto Sanchez: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sanchez, who was signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2015, made his stateside debut last year as a 17-year-old in the Gulf Coast League. He was impressive in 11 starts, going 5-0 with a 0.50 ERA and a 44:8 K:BB in 54 innings. Sanchez is just six feet tall, but he has a mid-90s fastball with movement that tops out at 99 mph. He has shown good command of that pitch for someone of his age and experience. Sanchez also boasts a curveball and changeup that each have a chance to be plus offerings in time. While he is shorter than most starting pitching prospects, Sanchez is a sturdy 200 pounds, and has a starter's repertoire and command. Dynasty league owners will only hold a pitcher's size against him for so long, so this is a good time to buy. He is expected to open the season at Low-A Lakewood, and if he starts missing more bats with his secondaries, he will go from trendy sleeper to top-100 prospect in a hurry.
