I’ve seen him live many times, even before his jaw breaking episodes and was not impressed with his swing. He reminded me a lot of Tom Prince and Prince hit better in AA than Sanchez.

Then he was hit in the jaw in a barroom fight. He may still be gun shy and may need another year to overcome the the effects of being hit. I would give him another year and then I would be concerned.

IMO that Hanson and Bell has the biggest upside at WV.

Or, perhaps Tony will be backing him up next year?
