I retract my statement about Sanchez being a UI at best: His best projection is as a solid starting 2B.

He's strong defensively, but not enough to be a day-in, day-out SS. He makes good contact and can hit for average, but lacks power. He has speed but isn't an instinctive base stealer. Whether he's a starter or a utility man will depend largely on how high he can keep his batting average.
