Angel Sanchez, Altoona – 71 GS (4/26), 57 GS (4/20)
Line: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 0 HR (4/26)
4.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K, 1 HR (4/20)
Notes: Sanchez gave up his first run of the season this week on a solo home run. He ended up posting two of the top game scores this week, including the best one in the system. On the season he has an 0.40 ERA in 22.2 innings, with a 12:2 K/BB ratio. He has hit 95 MPH with his fastball in both starts that we’ve covered this year, while showing good command of the pitch. We may be starting to see why the Pirates targeted him with a waiver claim at the end of last year, and why they sent him to the AFL, invited him to MLB Spring Training, and gave him a rotation spot in Altoona.
