Did Not Play

The Angels haven’t done much to make an international splash in the past few years, but all that changed last summer when the Angels signed Ricardo Sanchez. The Angels may have gotten a steal in him, signing him to a reported $580,000 bonus.

Sanchez made a name for himself when he pitched in the 15-and-under World Championships. He showed a low-90s fastball and a put away curve. He has a changeup that is under development, but is not quite as polished as his other pitches. 

Sanchez projects as a player with his stuff as is. However, he is just 17, and projects to add power to his pitches, making him a potential frontline starter. 

Traditionally, a club would take it a bit slowly with a 17-year old. Thus, it’s most likely that Sanchez would start in the Dominican Summer League. However, the Angels have been much more aggressive in player development, and it’s possible that they could send him to the Arizona League to get some work in this summer.





Love to hear what you think!
