It’s worth noting that Sano leads all Florida State League third basemen in total chances, putouts and assists and is third among FSL third basemen in range factor.

    This is encouraging for Sano. Of course it's discouraging for the pitching staff. I notice like the MLB club, this team is also a bottom feeder K/9 team. Only Baxendale has a K/9 +5.6 as a starter and his 7.5 K/9 is the only less-than encouraging thing about him this year.

    That's funny. They probably know less about music than we do about baseball talent.

    Yeah, those defensive stats are very opportunity-dependent.

    Also, of the 12 teams in the Florida State League, it looks like only about 7 of them have had a regular third baseman all season. And I think Sano leads those in games played too, so he should be expected to fare well in counting stats like chances, putouts, and assists.
