Huh. He's 20 years old, hitting for a high average and is a switch hitter. Maybe he gets called up this year and we see him on the team the year after? Lord knows that once Youkilis is gone after this year we're going to need someone to play 3B.

That is what I am hoping. He doesn't hit for power but if he hits .300, I don't really care

I'm personally always fearful of guys that hit for absolutely no power in the minors. I'm not saying the guy has to absolutely mash the ball, but if you can't hit for any power in A+ and AA ball, that's worrisome for MLB production. Lots of ground balls that make it through the infield in the minors are webgems in the Majors. Lots of little flares that fall in front of OF in the minors are relatively easy plays in the Majors. Lots of pitches you foul off or sneak into play on a bad swing will absolutely buckle your knees in the Majors.

I'm happy to see Sanchez have such a good season and have success in leagues that are a bit advanced for his age, but you ultimately have to hit with some authority if you're going to be an everyday player in the Majors.

Unless this guy can ****ing fly, in which case that makes up for it sometimes.

Sanchez is a 2B. His hit tool is great, but he doesn't project to have much of any power.

KG was asked about him last night on Twitter again:

Kevin Goldstein ‏@Kevin_Goldstein
Can really hit, but VERY few secondary skills. RT @samelladad1: @Kevin_Goldstein how about wsox 2b prospect carlos sanchez? any info?

Trayce Thompson promoted to Birmingham, goes 1- 4 in debut. It will be interesting to see how that ballpark affects his power numbers.

Erik Johnson (2nd rd. 2011) has been cruising along in WS. Got the win last night: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 10 K. Through 38 IP, his ERA is 1.64 with an OBA of .187

Carlos Sanchez reports to Charlotte today. Maybe a September call-up?

Is he being moved up fast just to be trade bait? He doesn't sound like he can replace Beckham, unless he's a great fielder.

Not unless a roster move is made with the 40 man roster because it stands at 40

Does that include John Danks? If so, the Sox can move him to the 60-day DL and free up a spot on the 40-man.

Danks is on the 60-day already. Bruney could be moved there too.

Eric Grabe named to 2012 Appy League all-star team.

Kanny should be a better challenge for him next year.
