BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Minor-league closer Jesus Sanchez keeps his walks down with excellent command of a low-90s fastball, and he flashes a solid changeup; as with every biped they can get their mitts on, the Brewers will give him a look for the bullpen this spring.
2011 Jesus Sanchez was the catcher in the Bobby Abreu deal; he is now a converted pitcher with good control but no clear out pitch. He signed with the prospect-starved Brewers after being released by the Phillies in December.
2010 Like Monasterios, Jesus Sanchez came over in the ugly Bobby Abreu deal with the Yankees; a catcher who couldn't hit, he converted to pitching in 2009 and showed a surprising amount of command to go with a strong arm.
2007 One of three minor leaguers the Yankees gave up to get Bobby Abreu, the 19-year-old Jesus Sanchez is already considered to be an elite defender with a quick release and a strong arm, but has a long way to go as a hitter.
