DateQuestionAnswer
2015-02-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Toronto closer: Aaron Sanchez? Brett Cecil? You must have seen these guys in the Int, no?
(CyMature from fountain of youth)
Yes. Saw Sanchez at New Hampshire last year. He wasn't around AAA a long time. The guy is one of the biggest arms around the game. Mid 90's with ease. Tons of natural life and run. I was told he has those big Pedro Martinez fingers that create a natural rifling effect as he releases the ball. Even long tossing he would appear to be throwing 15 degree away from the catcher and the ball ran back that much. I think this is a big reason for his command issues. The other big problem is his short striding. I don't like it and it's not helping him repeat better at all. Two Plus or better pitches and the change has a ton of potential. Big, strong, athlete who can throw hard all day. He'd be a waste in the pen in many ways - it wouldn't hide his command deficiencies, for one. If you're having trouble locating that doesn't really improve if you suddenly ONLY pitch high leverage innings. In either case though, he doesn't need to improve his command to get big leaguers out. He can be effectively wild because the stuff is just so good. Our own Mark Anderson used a AJ Burnett comp I liked a lot. Burnett has basically been a thrower and not a pitcher his whole career and yet he's made a hell of a career of that. Sanchez could do the same and has the potential to evolve into a better type of pitcher (READ: NOT saying better career than Burnett neccesarily ). EDIT: Rambled and Forgot Cecil. Cecil was the Closer for Maryland in College and he's more than capable. I also wouldn't sleep on Aaron Loup. He gets out LHs and RHs and is a pretty strong arm. Neither of those guys has a more impressive resume than Casey Janssen when he took over, no? (Al Skorupa)
