A 19-year-old with plus raw power and elite contact skills (17.8 percent strikeout rate) who led qualified Midwest League hitters with a .305 average needs to be taken very seriously, yet Sanchez still seems incredibly underrated. While he won't contribute with his legs in the same way peers like Taylor Trammell and Leody Taveras will, Sanchez's hit tool is special, and batting average is almost as scarce as speed these days. With a really quick bat and loose wrists through the zone, he is able to showcase excellent plate coverage, spraying the ball to all fields. He is better against righties, but posted a respectable .794 OPS against same-handed pitching, so a platoon may not be necessary. Sanchez's lean physique allows him to move fairly well now, but as his 6-foot-3, 210-pound frame continues to fill out, he will start to access 25-plus homer power, while slowing down considerably. The Rays have not promoted him aggressively, but it would not be surprising if he took another developmental leap this year and accelerated his ascent to the majors.

  2. Jesus Sanchez 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The 19-year-old Sanchez's arrow trended upward for the second time in as many seasons, as he slashed .323/.341/.530 over 173 plate appearances for the Gulf Coast League Rays, while rapping out 18 extra-base hits overall, including a whopping eight triples. He was then promoted to the Appalachian League and performed even better, posting a 170 wRC+ with three home runs in 53 plate appearances, albeit with a .412 BABIP. His strikeout rate increased from 17.9 percent to 22.6 percent after the promotion, but that is still a manageable range for an 18-year-old who is producing at that clip. Sanchez is an above average runner, but his baserunning is one area where he'll look to improve in 2017, as he swiped only two bags on seven attempts last season. At 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, Sanchez is already close to physically mature, which is why he is already able to show such impressive game power for his age. This is the time to invest in dynasty leagues, as Sanchez will be in high demand if he continues to rake after an assignment to Low-A Bowling Green.
