And just one more thing: White Sox
Sorry to be a bit tardy with this one, but you know how it goes. Lisa’s White Sox preview went up yesterday. They’ve traded away some talent of late, but there’s still some there, particularly in the lower levels. For the ChiSox extra man, Lisa goes with an eye-witness account.
Salvador Sanchez, OF: Sometimes you see a player who just jumps out at you, even among a field
four fields — of talented ballplayers. White Sox outfielder Salvador Sanchez is
just such a player. At 6-foot-6 and a muscular but lanky 195 pounds, the
22-year-old Sanchez just looks like a ballplayer. And at short-season Great
Falls in 2007 he played like one as well, hitting .343 with seven homers, 51
RBIs and 18 steals. It’s undecided where he’ll start ’08 but don’t be surprised
to see him skip past Class A Kannapolis (where he hit .209 in 88 games in 2006)
to Advanced A Winston-Salem to see how he fares against older pitching.
