BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 The Dodgers picked up Jonathan Sanchez after the lefty allowed seven homers in 13-plus innings with Pittsburgh, then sent him to get knocked around the PCL.
2013 Like Oliver Perez and Dontrelle Willis before him, Sanchez is left-handed and used to be good. Colorado acquired Sanchez in July but shut him down after three starts due to left biceps inflammation that previously had cost him five weeks in May and June. Sanchez doesn't throw as hard as he once did, and his walk rate keeps rising while his whiff rate keeps falling. Last year he added allowing hits and homers to his increasingly volatile bag of tricks. Sanchez hasn't been effective against right-handed hitters since 2010, so maybe he can reinvent himself as a reliever à la Perez. The other option is to keep riding the D-Train into oblivion.
2012 It's never been easy to know what to do with Sanchez—he's always on the cusp of excellence, on the brink of collapse, less expensive than market-rate, and due for a raise. That was still true after 2011, arguably his worst season. His lifelong experimentation with bases on balls turned into walkaholism in 2011. His teammate Sergio Romo walked five batters all season; Sanchez walked six or more batters in four starts. Shoot, Sanchez walked four pitchers. It's possible that the Giants' World Series run caught up to him. Including the 2010 postseason, he threw 50 more innings than he had ever thrown. Consequently or coincidentally, he lost a mile off his fastball. He also struggled with his stamina, according to his manager, working just 5 1/3 innings per start and failing to complete the fifth inning in any of his final five outings. The Giants traded him to Kansas City early in the winter, so instead of having to earn a rotation spot in spring, he'll be his staff's ace.
2011 The Giants had the second-best Park Adjusted Defensive Efficiency in the majors behind that of their World Series opponents, and Sanchez was the biggest beneficiary. As was not the case with Romo, the only difference between Sanchez’s 2009 and 2010 seasons was the performance of his defense, which helped him lead the majors with just 6.6 hits allowed per nine innings, in turn shaving more than a run off his 2009 ERA. As a result, the only progress Sanchez really made in 2010—actually, the only progress he’s made in three years as a full-time starter—was adding 30 innings to his previous career high. He's due to regress, but all the external factors—league, park, and defense—and one big internal one, strikeouts, are in his favor, so the readjustment might be mild.
2010 The frustration with Sanchez is sort of like the Bay Area's answer to the Oliver Perez problem. Is the real problem one of expectations, or inconsistency? Broadly speaking, he appeared to make little or no real progress from his 2008 season, struggling with his command. He can get well and truly hammered when he falls behind, and struggles in his second and third passes through a lineup, an ugly combination for a starting pitcher that encourages Bochy to make quick hooks. However, Sanchez's redemptive no-hitter in July against the Padres fended off a challenge to his job security, and his next 10 starts gave a taste of the Perez-like possibilities: six quality starts, 75 strikeouts against 27 unintentional walks in 59 2/3 IP. Had he turned the corner? In his last five turns, he failed to get out of the sixth inning, and allowed 36 baserunners and six homers in 25 IP. If that's a corner turned, it's because he's just going around the same block, over and over.
2009 After two years of jerking Sanchez between starting and relieving and the majors and the minors, the Giants finally just stuck Sanchez in the rotation and let him pitch. Sanchez revealed himself to be a promising young lefty starter with a strong strikeout rate, though one prone to inconsistency and wildness. After blowing by his 2007 innings total (majors and minors combined) by 60 frames, Sanchez landed on the DL with a shoulder strain. He only missed the minimum, but when he hit the DL his ERA was 4.53, and in his five starts after returning it was 7.83. Altogether, Sanchez’s innings more than doubled from 2007 to 2008 and surpassed his career high from three years prior by 32 1/3. For a pitcher already struggling with control, that’s worrisome.
2008 At the start of 2006, Sanchez was a 23-year-old coming off an impressive season in the Sally League, prone to fighting his command and mechanics but otherwise very talented. That season the Giants jerked him around between Double-A and the majors and between starting and relieving, resulting in a season broken into four stints with three teams in two roles with no more than eight weeks spent in any one place. Last year was more of the same, minus Double-A, but plus a recurring oblique injury. If there is a plan to all of this, it's well concealed. The Giants still don't know what they want him to be, and while making up their minds they've wasted two years of Sanchez's career. No one mishandling a million-dollar asset this badly should be allowed to keep their job.
2007 Sanchez lasted until the 27th round in the 2004 draft. The Giants thought he had bad mechanics that could be fixed, and they`ve turned out to be right. He swung between the pen and rotation last year as the team wrestled with short-term (he could come up and help in relief right now) versus long-term (he`d be more valuable as a starter). His performance--2.91 ERA in relief, 7.36 as a starter--gives the short-term hawks a lead, but the long-term doves will see that he gets more chances. His fastball and changeup are good, but he`s had trouble with overthrowing his curve. Top PECOTA comp Ron Moeller was a 1956 Baltimore Bonus Baby whose career never happened; Frank Bertaina had one good season in a six-year career; Conroy had potential but never mastered his control. That leaves veteran lefty swinger Mercker as the high upside.
